Format: Paperback
I found this book, well written, well researched and very easy to read. It comprehensively covers many aspects of Sybase's Application Server - EAServer aka Jaguar, in a clear manner with good diagrams for explaination. Michaels first book dealt with PowerBuilder and Jaguar, this one goes further into the undergrowth with Java development against Jaguar and Jaguar administration.
Note for pure PowerBuilder developers... though PowerBuilder does get its limelight, Java is the main flavour (but all examples are explained in full).
It is also great that this book features PowerDynamo, EAServers dynamic page server. So you could say that Michael has all angles covered in the hunt for knowledege on Jaguar, with HTML, Java (with PowerJ) & PowerBuilder. He introduces EJB's, Servlets and hopefully sets the scene for another book on Jaguars future J2EE support.
Taming Jaguar answers the real questions developers need to ask and backs them with good code examples (available over the web). For me, it really is the definitive guide for any developer serious on developing against Jaguar, from a guy who obviously knows his stuff.

As a Jaguar newbie tackling a complex commercial project using Financial Fusion based on Jaguar, this book got me the answers quick without having to read it from cover to cover. Very well researched book with insights and examples not found in the Jaguar online product docs. It's great the book isn't 2-3 inches thick too! As a result, I managed to solve some difficult problems. Thanks to Michael & Jason.

Good Read for Sybase Tools User 7 Dec 2000
By Allen Hogan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I give the authors of this book a thumbs up for giving the Sybase Tools programmer a useful book for understanding the EAServer environment. It is easy to read and follow. An intermediate PowerBuilder / Java developer will find it helpful. I really like the section on using PowerDynamo with EAServer. I would guess that Michael Barlotta only carries over about 25% of the material he covered in his first Jaguar book. The Sybase community needs more books like this one.

An excellent resource on EAServer/Jaguar CTS 12 Jan 2001
By Shaik Mujibur Rahman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A must have book for all EAServer/Jaguar CTS developers. It covers in detail about the development & production strategy. It helps to achieve a good component design. I have implemented the Momento Class component design in my project from this book. It also covers extensively the usage of PowerDynamo along with Jaguar CTS. I strongly recommend the EAServer community to buy this Book to ease their development effort. Looking forward to see more books on Sybase tools. Well done Mike & Jason Weiss.
