The author presents the most dense information at the beginning of the book. The first chapter is extremely hard to read. Even after reading it three times, I didn't get much out. The author is clearly very knowledgable, but doesn't seem to have the knack for communicating this information to a beginner.
The emphasis is definitely on Java EE rather than Glassfish administration.
The code can be (and should be) downloaded from Apress. There are however problems with the code but it is possible to get it running although if you have little Java (and Maven) experience, you might find it frustrating.
Obviously the author knows JAVA but this book is not for beginners. On page sixteen (16) he's talking about Singleton EJB's and Annotations...huh what? how did we get here?
I flipped thru a few pages and threw the book down. Am know looking for another book. If anyone wants this i'm willing to trade!
Too aggravated and disappointed to write anymore...
2. This is supposed to be a "Beginners...." book but it has no information about how to set up a Maven POM and how to run it.
3. They don't even list the import statements of the examples so you are forced to search for what will make the code compile.
4. The code in the book does not match the code in the source download; which to use? I tried both and neither worked.
5. Why isn't there peer review of books like this to keep us from spending money on worthless BS that does not reflect reality, does not work, and has no instructions on setting up an IDE?
6. I notice that all the GREAT reviews of the book must be from friends of the authors, because they discuss nothing about actually working through the book examples, which do not work.
7. I have been writing Java code since Beta 2 (1995) and have been to 5 JavaOne conferences; I spent 3 days unsuccessfully trying to get the example code to work in Chapter 2. 'Nuff said about these authors who apparently just want to make a fast buck on new technology. I am not wasting my time with the rest of this POS.
8. How the hell can an author with his credentials sleep at night knowing that what he is selling is BS?
Its easy to understand and execute the code examples given at the end of each chapter.Even a guy with no background in java ee can easily
understand the book.I would recommend this book to any beginner in javaee and also an experienced developer having previous experience in j2ee.
