"JBoss is the certified J2EE application server from JEMS (JBoss Enterprise Middleware System) and with JBoss: A Developer's Notebook you'll be able set up and manage your project in minutes. It takes a no-nonsense approach and is the practical guide to JBoss for developers. It's certainly the kind of book that you'll constantly have open on your desk, and to save time they've added in some coffee cup stains on the pages for you! Scribbled notes in the margin also add to the notebook theme, but they are actually useful asides to the main text, which makes it one of the most readable books on the subject. However, some sections might prove a bit lightweight for the coding hardcore." .NET, November 2005 "A daring format which works well, a style that lends to quick reading and progress, and an all-round enjoyable read. I look forward to other O'Reilly books in this series." - Mark Jones, news@UK, March 2006
From the Publisher
JBoss is a fully certified J2EE 1.4 application server that's free, popular, and competitive with proprietary Java application servers in features and quality. JBoss: A Developer's Notebook takes you on a complete tour of JBoss in a very unique way: rather than long discussions, you will find code--lots of code. In fact, the book is a collection of hands-on labs that take you through the critical JBoss features step-by-step. Don't just read about JBoss, learn it through direct application.See all Product description

If you are a heavy expert on Java and all the Enterprise stuff then this book is passable as a reference guide. For the majority, though, it will be a big dissapointment.
The book assumes JBoss and a database server are both on the same machine. Initially the examples use the database server embedded in JBoss and then a separate MySQL server. Fine for learning but not for a real internet site where the two would contend for computer resources. The book singularly fails to address the configuration necessary to make JBoss function with a database installed on a separate machine.
The examples in the downloadable source code function correctly with the specified, now dated, version 4 of JBoss. Some, at least, cause errors with later versions.
However, making the examples work in a more complex "real world" situation will prove quite challenging and require reference to other sources of information and a lot of thought.
It has one of the highest ratios of facts to pages I have encountered in a technical book

If you are trying to dive into the details of JBoss in order to solve a complex setup issue or trying to fully understand one aspect of the application, then this is probably not the book for you. The depth of the information in the book is appropriate for it's scope as a developers notebook but it is not a reference manual.
Overall, if you want to learn the basics of JBoss quickly or stand up an instance with minimal research, you have come to the right place.
