Returned for an exchange... Still skewed, but readable.
Little time is spend on generic Jython and WebLogic topics, true to the word "advaned" the author dives in after just a glance. The content of this book can then be split into three parts; WLST, JMX and a smaller chapter on other automation related topics. The real gold is in the examples - they are all working and written as standalone functions. it's obvious that the writer has run into many (if not all) of the obstacles WLS administrators run into sooner or later. Monitor a queue and start a shell script on rising numbers? There's an example on that. Developers screaming for automation of domain creation or scripted deployments, including data sources? It's there. You find that in a basic setup the standard out log is filling up the drive? It's hidden, but in the book. You need to import user accounts into WebLogic every night? Needs some hammering, but it's there. Although the author does not explicitly list all of the functions, no WLST (and partly JMX) command is left without a small example.
A drawback: when setting up server automation you would probably choose WLST and only in some cases JMX. Either way, half of the book would be of little use to you. The topics in the book on both technologies are so similar that going from one to the other feels like rereading it with all of the examples written in another programming language. Also, maybe not a drawback, but that's a lot of examples. This is not light reading (unless you enjoy reading code).
To summarize: it's a great book if you've got programming experience or are experienced with WLST or Java and need to script or automate aspects of WebLogic and a great reference to have around besides.
