Editorial Reviews

Review

In an industry where books are typically dry and out of date, this book is entertaining and effective. This is a total, required read for anyone working with, or planning to work with WebSphere. --Michael Carerra

I spent over $3000 on a WebSphere class, and left totally confused. Discouraged, I was given a copy of this book, and everything came clear. I really wish I read this book instead of taking the class. It's amazing how clear and concise material, that is delivered in a manner that is entertaining and easy to read, can make what are otherwise complex topics, clear and simple. --Katie Heffernan

Far and away the best book written about Java, J2EE or WebSphere. A compact read, a fun read, and and easy read. The author has a great way using his way with words to enable to reader to easily conceptualize difficult subject. A great book! It makes WebSphere easy and clear. --Jim Chaung --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

About the Author

Cameron McKenzie (mail@cameronmckenzie.com) is a WebSphere Portal Architect and Certified IBM Technical Trainer working out of Downer's Grove (Chicagoland), Illinois.

You can attend his classes for between $2,000 and $4,000 a week. You could alternatively hire him for $200 an hour as a consultant. Or, you could buy this book, a masterpiece that took well over six months to write and complete, all for a very reasonable price. What a bargain!

Oh, and if you want your book shipped out the next day, and at a nice little discount, you can order directly from the author, through amazon. Just buy from the seller named pulpjava_examscam_publishing, and get the personalized service that only Cameron can offer.

And we've always got copies in stock, even if amazon is temporarily out. That's one of the benefits of buying directly from the author. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I think the book is easily overpriced by at least $30. The contents in the book serve as just introduction to all the J2EE topics and they sound like a brief canteen chat we have with our fellow programmers. After reading the book you can simply 'talk' about the all the ingredients in J2EE and learn nothing practical.

So if you are programmer and want some in depth knowledge in Websphere usage and it's practical applications, this is not for you.

TYhis was probably the most humorous and entertaining technical book I've ever read. It's nice to have a book thats both interesting and informative, especially when its on a topic as intimidating as websphere.

I've been working with websphere for 3 years, but this book really helped round out my knowledge of the subject. The chapters on classloaders and session management were especially good. I'm going to have all of my developers read them.

Five Stars.

I was required to learn about Websphere as part of my project management job. After struggling with confusing textbooks and expensive software, I stumbled upon this gem. Cameron has created a learning tool that is both informative and funny. Not only do I have a much better understanding of Websphere, I feel like I have the upper hand over many of the senior analysts. Thank You Cameron!

Format: Paperback
This book is not just for learning WebShere. It is also a book for J2EE architecture.

How do roles relate to users or groups in the user registry ?

What is session failover ? Should we put static HTML file in WAR file ? Why do we need a seperate Web Server in addition to the Application Server which can do Web Server's job ?

I read several J2EE books to learn J2EE programming, but none of them talked about these issues.

I would like to be able to become an architect. This book is not thick, but it let me see the big picture of J2EE in a short time.

I would recommend this book for managers who want learn J2EE fast, and programmers who wants to learn more about J2EE architecture.

Its uncommon to find a book with just the right information laid out in just the right way. This book was definitely that uncommon find.

Not having much websphere experience, I thought this book might be way over my head, but the explanations were great, and difficult subjects such as EJBs and web services were made really easy to understand.

It was funny, too!

If you are trying to understand what WebSphere is all about and you dont want to struggle with too much technical stuff, this book is for you. This book is a great help for nontechnical people like me that are trying to get up to speed FAST in WebSphere.

All of the examples and explanations are absolutely awesome. The way the book is structured is also outstanding.

This is definitely a five star book, if not more.

I bought this book just a month ago for learning more about WebSphere. I always read books cover to cover. Usually it takes me several months to read a thick book 800-1000 pages. By the time I reach Page 500, I don't remember what is mentioned in page 1. So I choose a thiner book with a good review like this one. I thought this book is just about WebSphere. But I found I got a good refresh of J2EE too. This book gave me a concise and clear review of J2EE. Before I read this book, I thought I am very good at J2EE already. (I have all the Sun Java certifications). But actually I found I learned a lot of J2EE stuff from this book !
One more thing to mention: this book is perfect for me to refresh my J2EE knowledge for job interview ! Think about how many books I need to read before go to a job interview. This one covers many topics in a concise way. Its format 'quesion-answer' is exactly like in job interview. It really helps !
It worth the investment: think about I can pass the job interview easier, get a higher pay job !
