Maven: The Definitive Guide
Maven: The Definitive Guide
by Sonatype Company
Edition: Paperback
Price: £22.50

4.0 out of 5 stars A good jump start into Maven, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used it as a good jump start into maven and how to use maven. Note that it was developed for a specific version of maven and maven has now evolved. Made the mistake of trying examples with a newer version of maven and therefore the examples required adaptation (from someone limited knowledge). This was the only frustration but can be solved by taking the maven version matching the book and work up from there. Would welcome an updated version to the newer version of maven! Can highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good general overview in using XML and Web Service for SOA, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good general overview of using relatively current (as it is a fast moving target) XML and Web Services standards for Service-Oriented Architectures. Can recommend the book and my only dis-like is that Erl tries to create a lot of his own brand of terminology for SOA.


Jboss Esb Beginner's Guide
Jboss Esb Beginner's Guide
by Len Dimaggio
Edition: Paperback
Price: £30.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good jump start into the JBoss ESB, 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book is a very easy to read jump start into the JBoss ESB world. Note that it is really what the title says: A Beginners guide for the JBoss ESB and you won't be disappointed. It gives you the basis to then follow other more advanced examples to learn how to use the ESB. The book though expects though that you understand some of the basic Service Oriented concepts.

TOGAF 9 Certified Study Guide: Examination Pt. 2: Preparation for the TOGAF 9 Part 2 Examination
by The Open Group
Edition: Perfect Paperback
Price: £34.36

3.0 out of 5 stars A good study guide for the preparation for the Certified (Part 2) examination., 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good studay guid for the preparation for the Certified (Part 2) examination. It is a good overview of the knowledge required for the examination. I was a bit disappoint after using the first foundation study guide though with the test questions at the end of each chapter. It didn't train you in the exam style questions, albeit there are two tests at the end in the same style as the real examination. I recommend the book from the point of the overview of what to study but was disappointed with practice exam questions.

TOGAF Version 9.1
TOGAF Version 9.1
by The Open Group
Edition: Paperback
Price: £68.99

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best conprehensive architecture frameworks that I have seen., 2 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: TOGAF Version 9.1 (Paperback)
A wealth of information for anyone looking for a foot-hold in Enterprise Architecture. A relatively consistent and comprehensive framework with an associated method for developing the architecture. It is your choice what you include or exclude from the framework and can be mapped to other process frameworks within the organsation. Can highly recommend it but beware that the topic is relatively dry and the authors have tried their best to make it interesting and readable. Mainly though it should be viewed as a reference manual.
