The presentation is well organized!
Mr Ed
Many techniques are explained in great details, again with solid use case scenarios and examples.

I really have mixed feelings about this book: the author is definitely well versed on the subject, but his english and presentation style leave much to be desired. A little more attention ( and editing ) would have done much to make this book more readable and easier to go through. The author also shares the typical defect of researchers and scientist: not being able to discern the hard from the easy and the important from the futile, presenting all material with the same level of detail and a general dullness in the presentation style. This book does have some strong point though: it touches all aspects of JPA programming in decent detail, does not shy away from what other book consider "advanced material beyond the scope of this book" and tried to do that in a pragmatic way. Example code need a lot of work anyhow, it's given basically as a bunch of poorly organized java source files and will require quite some sweat to be put to work. Nothing that can't be done, but if I spend money on a book I expect the source code to be better organized and ready to run, at a minimum with an ant script, if it's a book on java technology. The part of concurrency and locking if far from clear and detailed enough, but unfortunately that is an evil common to all JPA books I have seen. To sum it up, this is a decent book if you have the patience to go through the example code and organize it with ant scripts or and ide to make it run on you application server of choice, but it won't be a good choice for a real beginner in JPA and J2EE technology, and a generally dull and boring read for everyone.
I do have the disturbing feeling that many of the 5 star reviewers of this text are actually friends/colleagues of the author...

Short Summary: Best book on JPA 2.0 on the market right now (Nov 2010). I know, I've looked through almost all of them!

Long Summary:

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.

Format: Paperback
Though the number of books that touch the topic of Java persistence is by no mean a small one, this book is one of the first few dedicated to JPA 2.0. As we all know, JPA has been adopted as the only OR mapping standard for Java persistence, which is probably why readers like you and me pick up this book in the first place. However, books on standard (whose specification can be a book by itself, especially in Java land these days) are not easy to write. I have seen too many such books ended up as a mere reiteration of the API specification or the reference implementation. This book is not one of them. The author has done a great job with his organization of the topics. The chapters flow in a natural way and it has an emphasis on the practice side than the theory side. This will play well with new comers to the Java persistence field. What I like most of this book are the concrete examples that the author uses to explain the concepts and demonstrate certain techniques. The examples are to the point and easy to understand yet they are by no mean trivial. The examples also relay well with someone like me who is seasonal in the field but not totally sold on OR mapping (plain old SQL and technologies like iBATIS hold the same weight as OR mapping in my heart). The "Design Patterns and Performance" chapter is another bright spot of the book. IMHO, this chapter alone would worth the money. Many techniques are explained in great details, again with solid use case scenarios and examples. This chapter is definitely something you don't want to miss.

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.
