1.0 out of 5 stars Obscure explanations for the Java EE 6 beginner, 6 Nov 2012
By 
This review is from: The Java EE 6 Tutorial: v. 1: Basic Concepts (Java Series) (Paperback)
The tutorial is a show of mastery of the treated topics from the writers, and indeed they are rigorous and exact. Unfortunately they don't make an effort to explain and teach. Or if they do, in my opinion they fail. Even with several years of experience programming, including Java SE, and the basics of HTML and CSS, after spending many hours on the tutorial, still I didn't really have an understanding of how to program with Java Server Faces. One example for all, the "explanation" of the JSF life cycle is quite impenetrable; I don't see what value it adds to just reading the Jave EE specs. After poring over this tutorial, I couldn't progress beyond copying, building and running an example with NetBeans. What a waste of time and, if you are evaluating a framework for web applications, what an encouragement to go with other options, like Ruby on Rails, for which there is excellent self-teaching material. I believe this "tutorial" can be of help to those already comfortable with Java EE 5 and who want to transition to v6. The book is available on-line for free as a PDF file from Oracle, so you can check for yourself.
