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.

I learned a lot from this book but I have trouble with the examples. I tried contacting the publisher to see if there was a forum that supported this book.

The book covers a lot of material and is a good introduction to those features and gives plenty of examples. The only problem is that when they don't work right you are sort of stuck. There is nowhere to get help as to why they aren't working for you.
