About the Author
JBoss 4.0: The Official GuideAbout the Authors
Scott Stark, Ph.D. started out as a chemical engineer and graduated with a B.S. from the University of Washington, and he later earned a Ph.D. from the University of Delaware. While he was at Delaware, it became apparent that computers and programming were to be his passion, so he made the study of applying massively parallel computers to difficult chemical engineering problems the subject of his Ph.D. research. It has been all about distributed programming ever since. Scott currently serves as the chief technology officer of JBoss, Inc., an elite services company based out of Atlanta.
Marc Fleury, Ph.D. started in sales at Sun Microsystems France. A graduate of the Ecole Polytechnique, France's top engineering school, and an ex-lieutenant in the paratroopers, he has a master's in theoretical physics from the ENS ULM and a Ph.D. in physics for work he did as a visiting scientist at MIT (working with X-ray lasers). Marc currently serves as the president of JBoss, Inc.
Norman Richards is a JBoss developer and is currently the maintainer of this guide. He graduated with a B.S. in computer science from the University of Texas at Austin, where he researched evolving neural networks to play the game of go. Norman is the co-author of XDoclet in Action (Manning Publications).

I am going to buy the O'Reilly book 'JBoss at Work'.
Other niggles: References to colored text in diagrams - whilst my version of the book is has grayscale diagrams only;
Appendix B mentions that the book comes with example source code. Mine didn't; The code examples are incomplete, but I suppose in the long run all the hacking trying to get even a simple example to work will pay off in a deeper understanding of how it all works (I hope?)

Very well written book. Gives outstanding step by step instructions and explanations.
I would recommend this book if you are using JBoss 4.X. Be sure to check the version of JBoss before buying a book.
This book thoughly covers the JBoss software, but is lite on advice and guides. Nearly half the book is code examples, DTD diagrams, and XML.
I think this quote from the book is a good recommendation for the rest of it: "JBossMQ fully implements the JMS specification; therefore, the best JBossMQ user guide is the JMS specification."
Anyways, this text as other as noted is an arid, barely coherent, messy agglomerate of dtds, schemas, example code and superficial explanations. Not deep enough for the wanna be JBoss developer and not clear and detailed enough for the JBoss programmer or administrator.
It is just the typical product you would expect when the project manager tells his average Joe programmer : "Hey I know this sucks but we need documentation for our framework in one week so try to put something together".
I really wish the JBoss team will understand soon that clear documentation and engaging tutorials are the heart of a successful project. Meanwhile, save your money for something else.
