This book was a major disappointment, but I believe I should of expected as much. It is over a couple years old and obviously doesn't address the enhancements that were just released. I rate this book a tad lower solely on the fact that the index is horrible. I'm not sure how you can have a 2.5 page index on such an elaborate framework.
I suggest keeping an eye out for a new edition or another ZK book focused on ZK 5.
This contradicts the principle behind the framework. Instead of helping the developers build the application fast, they have to go back to their books and review.
But as a book, ZK Developer's Guide is very intensive. Although it is only focused n CRUD based applications, the topics that were discussed covers almost any problem that the developers might face when using ZK Frameworks. People might be intimidated with the number of pages this book has, but the most parts of the book are actually coding that sometimes occupies more than one page.
This book doesn't go around the bush in explaining some things that you might not encounter later on. It goes straight to the point and it uses a very simple yet very relevant example. Even though you are not familiar with ZK, this book will provide you with more than enough information which will help you, in the end, build your own Ajax based application using ZK Framework.
Appendix offers very extensive information about configuration files. This part of the book is actually needed not only the end but right from the start. This appendix will help developers understand better the underlying principles in building this efficient application.
If you are already writing in Ajax, then ZK leverages the success of that approach. This combination of Java and Ajax abilities is a strong feature of ZK.
The book is candid about ZK being for the client side construction. But it also shows how ZK can be used with server side approaches.

This book didn't meet my expectations. Its style is a bit unstructured. The interaction with a always required back-end has been insufficiently described. Read morePublished on February 27, 2014 by JP Hendriks
