Format: Paperback
The purpose of "Java Enterprise Best Practices" is to assist Java developers in getting around the complexities, which are part of a typical enterprise system.
The neatly summarized chapters of this book harbour concise and comprehensive outlines, which should guide developers in designing and coordinating projects, using the Java Enterprise APIs.
Despite its small size, this book did a good job on JavaMail, JavaServer Pages, Enterprise JavaBeans, Performance tuning, JDBC, and RMI/CORBA. However, some users may not be satisfied with the rather short information it provided on both XML and Custom Tag Libraries.

... This is an outstanding book
that has plenty of gems in it. The chapter on servlets
alone is worth it, which is available for free on the book
web site. EJB and JSP chapters are also very good. But I'd
have liked to see more on XML and web services.

Format: Paperback
Nice practical tips for your daily work. Especially if you have to discuss your technical decisions with your managers and the other team members this book will give you a sound basis for your arguments.
The book consists of many small tips and advices but don't expect any kind of reference implementation.
For me the most useful chapters were JDBC Best Practices (i.e. how to use Optimistic Concurrency and implement a Sequencer object together with a very illustrative activity diagram) and Enterprise Internationalization. You pick the gems out of the text and use them immediately.

This book assumes you have prior knowledge of jsp/java. It's an excellent book especially for someone who needs to have some questions answered while developing an app, i.e how to perform connection pooling using JDBC 3.0. The information is short but precise ; at this level of development, this is what I need. Again, if you're looking for a detailed java book, get a different book. But if you're developing your first app and need a book that 'look over your shoulder', this is definitely the book.

Jason Hunter has done it again. His servlet chapter is simply awesome. He offers some really juicy bytes of information. Give the man more chapters. The other chapters are good too. I would give the book five stars but the Performance chapter is worthless. That came as a surprise because I enjoyed Jack Shirazi performance book.

An appetizer that leaves you hungry for more.
Patterns and best practices have been around for a long time. They solve problem domains not directly addressed by the language itself ie., repeatable solutions to family of application development issues -- be it architecture, deployment or testing. For a complex platform like J2EE, use of best practices can make or break a project.
Just what the doctor ordered - Java Enterprise Best Practices is a collection nuggets of wisdoms. It is a compendium of idioms classified based on various enterprise Java areas written the most acclaimed authors in the field (Jason Hunter, Bret McLaughlin, Hans Bergsten et al). Ranging from most widely used EJBs to the latest additions such as JMX and JSTL, each chapter presents the reader with most widely accepted norms of using technologies such as - EJB, Servlets, JDBC, XML, RMI, JMX, Internationalization, JSP, JavaMail. Chapters on XML and RMI are the best of the lot.
I was surprised to note the omission of JMS, given that its popularity when compared with other things such as JMX or JSTL. The last chapter on performance tuning lacks depth and reads more like hastily scribbled notes.
Can best practices be argued? Absolutely! The first chapter of the book says just that. It is important to bear that in mind while you read through the chapters.
While a seasoned J2EE developer idioms may find a few things trivial, it is quite a good reference to keep handy if you are developing real-life applications.
