Format: Paperback
I had reviewed the previous edition of Heffelfinger's book and noted how it served as both an introduction to Glassfish as well as a summary of the components of Java EE 5 and their associated APIs. For me this was great, as I was looking just as much for a Glassfish text as I was for a reference about Java EE 5. This updated edition does not disappoint in covering the new features of Java EE 6 and how they are implemented in Glassfish 3. In particular, the new features associated with version 3.0 of the Servlet API are covered very well, especially the new Java annotations that make a separate web.xml file for configuring web applications completely optional and allow for programmatic configuration of servlets. The material on Facelets has been appropriately merged into the chapter on JSF. Also, the JAX-WS functionality for SOAP-based web services is now supplemented with a chapter on JAX-RS for REST-based web services (using the Jersey reference implementation that is part of Glassfish). David's explanations of newer ways of doing things are always clear and thorough without being pedantic and evangelistic. Although naturally there is a lot of redundancy with the previous edition, there are certainly enough changes between Java EE 5 and Java EE 6 to warrant a new edition of the book. My only complaint is that some additional material from the first edition has been omitted (perhaps for supplemental technologies no longer considered "in vogue"?).

I am a moderately experienced java developer, and I'd like to develop web applications. I've tried numerous books and tutorials on Java EE, and always end up with non-working code and being none the wiser. This is the first EE book I've seen that explains each step it takes, which proved to be very useful in my case. If you mix up elements from different technologies and versions, you will not achieve stable results, and this book keeps them clearly apart. I love the book, despite the fact that some of the later developments in EE technology is only briefly covered. It is very well written, and easy to follow. I highly recommend it as a Java EE primer, also for java developers.

Format: Paperback
This book provides an overview of different features of Java EE with tiny examples without much detail. Due to the lack of a demo project that gets built or improved over the course of the book, I think one could simply learn about the topics discussed in this book from the tutorials available on the web.

Also, this book gives you basic examples and how-to, but very little 'why' if you know what I mean. It seems that this book was written in kind of a hurry without much thought.

On top of that, it has two chapters on JSP - which has been deprecated in Java EE 6 - the version this book covers, not good.

Bottom line: Do not expect much from the book. It is an OK overview of Java EE and nothing else.

I hope the author takes these comments positively and improves the content in the next edition.
