I do have the disturbing feeling that many of the 5 star reviewers of this text are actually friends/colleagues of the author...Read more ›
I got this book because of the overwhelming positive reviews of the book. Although one of the negative reviews concerned me so much that I decided to rate this product.
1) The presentation is well organized! The author in Chapter 1 gives you a working sample application. If you take the time to work on the sample applications, the rest of the chapters all do into details of all the potential features of the first application. The cool thing about this approach is you already kinda understand the material from chapter one (you compiled the code, right!?), but spend the rest of the chapters understanding the details the technology examples presented in the sample app in chapter one. Although I know nothing of Daoqi Yang, I can tell he is a prof who has had experience teaching.
2) The author's written English in this book is excellent. I don't understand why someone wrote his english needed work. Frankly, I find that offensive (I'm not chinese or anything)- even though I don't even know Daoqi Yang(author). Perhaps a student of his who wrote that comment was referring to his spoken english...
3) Eclipse examples! I'm so sick of people using Netbeans tools or JDeveloper IDE when the rest of the real world uses Eclipse
4) Excellent mapping of new concepts by providing complete compilable sources! Uggggh... I hate authors who don't do that.
5) Examples of BOTH stand alone applications and EJBs. Really cool given that there are different approaches needed for both types. For some reason, most the tutorials on this topic always maps to EJBs.Read more ›
I wish the author had formally listed the API (cheat sheet format not the full blown document) centrally as an appendix. With all those sophisticated IDE, this is a fairly minor issue though. Overall "Java Persistence with JPA" is a concise practical guide to learn and use JPA. Highly recommended.
