Building and Deploying J2EE in the Real World
About the Author
Tom Marrs, a 20 year veteran in the software industry, is the principal and senior software architect at Vertical Slice, a consulting firm that designs and implements mission-critical business applications using the latest J2EE and open source technologies. Tom speaks regularly at software conferences such as JavaOne and No Fluff Just Stuff. He is an active participant in the local technical community, and served as president of the Denver Java Users Group.
Scott Davis is a senior software engineer and instructor in the Denver, Colorado area. He has worked on a variety of Java platforms, from J2EE to J2SE to J2ME (sometimes all on the same project). He is a frequent presenter at national conferences and local user groups. He was the president of the Denver Java Users Group in 2003 when it was voted one of the top ten JUGs in North America.

This book never promises to be a reference manual type book listing ins and outs of JBoss configuration. It is stated in the preface and the opening chapter in black and white. Using JBoss as a vehicle, it is teaching very subtle but all-important J2EE concepts. After all, JBoss IS a J2EE server. Without J2EE applications, it has no use. I do agree that some of the deployment tasks are missing from the Ant build files in the downloads from the book's web site (specifically colddeploy). It should not matter though. Bring the server down, copy the EAR file to the deploy directory, and bring it back up. It does the same thing. You DO need some previous knowledge and experience with some J2EE containers, e.g., WebLogic, WebSphere etc. to benifit from this book though. It is NOT book for rand beginners. If you do have some prior experience with J2EE containers and are NOT specifically looking for comprehensive reference material on JBoss configuration/tuning etc. then this book begins to be very useful. It may have to do with how people learn however. I personally like the presentation style and the material presented in this book very much.
This was perfect for my needs -- to provide a strong enough introduction for me to understand into which technologies I wanted to delve deeper, and enough contact with each of them to allow me to evaluate competing technologies in their space.
I think it's a really swell book.
Highly recommended for anyone who has a base understanding of JBoss/J2EE and wants to start exposing themselves to new things as well as beginners just starting out with the JBoss/J2EE world.
mainframe assembler through Java.
I left industry to pursue research in biology and spend much of my time reading and getting up to speed on that side of things. When I need to make use of an unfamiliar programming technology, there is neither the time nor the money for training. JBoss at work was the perfect book to allow me to get a reasonable J2EE implementation off the ground. The example project provided a perfect skeleton of most of the features I needed to implement a plate management system that is being used for cancer research in a joint project between universities.

I have had this book for two years. It has never solved any technical problem. Google is a better resource.
Great book. It is as the subtitle implies: a practical guide.Read more
