I do have the disturbing feeling that many of the 5 star reviewers of this text are actually friends/colleagues of the author...Read more ›
I got this book because of the overwhelming positive reviews of the book. Although one of the negative reviews concerned me so much that I decided to rate this product.
1) The presentation is well organized! The author in Chapter 1 gives you a working sample application. If you take the time to work on the sample applications, the rest of the chapters all do into details of all the potential features of the first application. The cool thing about this approach is you already kinda understand the material from chapter one (you compiled the code, right!?), but spend the rest of the chapters understanding the details the technology examples presented in the sample app in chapter one. Although I know nothing of Daoqi Yang, I can tell he is a prof who has had experience teaching.
2) The author's written English in this book is excellent. I don't understand why someone wrote his english needed work. Frankly, I find that offensive (I'm not chinese or anything)- even though I don't even know Daoqi Yang(author). Perhaps a student of his who wrote that comment was referring to his spoken english...
3) Eclipse examples! I'm so sick of people using Netbeans tools or JDeveloper IDE when the rest of the real world uses Eclipse
4) Excellent mapping of new concepts by providing complete compilable sources! Uggggh... I hate authors who don't do that.
5) Examples of BOTH stand alone applications and EJBs. Really cool given that there are different approaches needed for both types. For some reason, most the tutorials on this topic always maps to EJBs.Read more ›
Why 4 stars instead of 5? I believe this book is self-published, and it shows in some ways. The index could be a lot better, and the format and styling could be better so that it's easier to pick things out on the page when flipping through. As such, it's a great book to read through from front to back, but it's a little tough to use as a reference when looking for specific topics. (Once you find the section you are looking for, the explanations are great.)
Another reviewer commented that the code needed a lot of work to get running. That could be; I really don't know. I'm the sort of lazy person who doesn't generally run code samples in a book like this. I use them instead to understand what the author is trying to explain. I felt the code samples were right on target for that kind of examination. My keen, trained, programmer's eyeballs didn't spot any typos or glitches in the code, and that gave me confidence that they were real and runnable (in context of some larger application).
