By Greg on July 18, 2009
Format: Paperback
I bought this book about 6 months ago to prepare for a projected move to the JBoss AS from Websphere. As with most technical books I read as much as I needed for the tasks at hand. My project seems to be cancelled, so I may not go back to this book, but I'd like to leave this review.

I believe this is the only book targeted at JBoss AS 5 configuration and management - that should earn it a couple of stars. On top of that this is one of the best written technical books I have recently encountered. The authors have clearly taken the extra effort to write a concise book (400 pages, it could easily be double the way most are written). There are no extracts of man pages, no bulky examples of pet projects.

One time as I was reading found myself asking a question - and a few paragraphs later there was a reference to that topic in another chapter ("if you are wondering about security see chapter XX"). The authors have a very good sense of what the reader is thinking.

Did the book answer my questions? Mostly. Though I wish there was more information on JMS persistence. And there are whole sections of the book (e.g. portal) that I skipped.

One more thing, worth a star, the book comes with a pdf version as well. I commute, and being able to refer to the text without juggling book and laptop is a huge benefit

I would like to begin by saying that I like the table of contents. It shows that JBoss is more than an application server since a full part is about JBoss Portal.

In the first part the authors tell us about the origins of the server (did you know that JBoss was originally called EJBoss and that it meant Enterprise Java Beans Open Source Software ?) and describe the installation of version 5, the deployment of applications and the configuration.
The structure of the server is described in detail with explanations on MBeans (managed beans, from the JSR 3) and the JMX console, illustrated with screenshots.
Then comes the deployment of an application, the declaration of a data source, the creation of an Hibernate archive (.har) ... All along, the authors explain the advantages of an application server.
The chapter on security is very interesting. The login modules of the JBoss SX framework, which uses JAAS, are described and illustrated with examples of XML configuration for each type of data source (database, LDAP, certificate ...).

The second part is about the configuration of JBoss Web server. Everything is explained : configuration files, WAR archive, the structure of an URL and even the JSF configuration.
The enterprise applications are not forgotten. On the contrary, since the authors go as far as giving us a nice overview of EJB 3 and packaging and deploying session beans.
The security of applications, at the enterprise (EJB) and web levels, programmatically and declaratively, is very detailed.
JBoss Messaging and Web Services are also detailed. The authors take the time to explain the technologies before explaining them with JBoss. That is a very nice approach.

I bought this book specifically for the chapters on Clustering and High Availability. I thought the author did an excellent job of explaining those topics, as well as giving examples of config files. They also walk the user through how to set up various configurations, which I thought was very helpful. Over all the book was well written and for the most part easy to follow.

I bought this book a month ago, just because it covered topics like clustering, load balancing e.t.c. After reading this book I must say this is one of the best technical book that I have read. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced person using Jboss AS , this book is meant for everyoneone who wishes to use or just learn about JBoss. Particularly, I found the last section "Going to Production" most useful.

This book as been great so far! I learned a lot in just 30 minutes and a lot more just by flipping pages. This book is geared more to the developer and the deployer (especially those who already have some experience and want to enhance their knowledge and skills). To the layman, it can be a tough go about unless you learn quick and have a good interest in the material. If you support the product in any capacity, there is something here to be learned. I would probably recommend a 'performance tuning' book for those who simply 'support' the product but this guide may be better for the dev guys (IMO).

First, know that this book covers JBoss AS 5. The latest release is JBoss AS 7.1.1 as of March 9, 2012. Not a problem since JBoss AS resides completely under its own subdirectory. So you can download and install JBoss 5 to use with the book.

Amazon does not have the kindle version of this book available for purchase but you should know that after making the purchase, you can download the kindle version and a PDF version for free. I really like that because now I don't have to drag a book around everywhere I go. I wish more books I've purchased work that way.

The book is an easy read and helpful for a JBoss newbie like me. Recommend this book but the authors need to update it because there are differences between JBoss 5 and 7 that really need addressed.

Minus 1/2 star for being outdated. 2 years ago, 5 stars. Since I can't do 4.5 stars I went with 5 stars because of the Kindle and PDF support.
