Marrs and Davis use the creation of an ecommerce web site for a car dealership to demonstrate all the key aspects of an enterprise Java application and its deployment in to a JBoss container. Using ANT and xDoclet it demonstrates how to avoid the XML configuration nightmare that can take the pleasure out of development. It simply introduces you to the configuration steps to make container managed resources, like databases, available to web applications via JNDI. It uses Hibernate to introduce Object Relational Mapping and progresses to demonstrate how common design patterns can be reflected using these technologies.
The book is successful at condensing down the practicalities of Session Beans to just a few pages. Quite an achievement considering a lot of space is also dedicated to sensible reasoning about their use as well. If they are like me Marrs and Davis thought it was a waist of time elaborating any more as we are all waiting for EJB 3.0 anyway. I would recommend the section on JMS and MDB's. I was able to finally redesign a web application that had forced me in to managing my own threads for processing in bound messages over JMS some years ago (breaking the contract with a Tomcat container).
The other sections worth a mention are the JavaMail and Web Services which maintain the same standard. This is basically a very useful book that should be on your desk, dog eared and scribbled on, but not as a reference for JBoss.
JBoss 4.2 GA released 11 May 2007 (contains some important changes above 4.0)
JBoss 5.0 GA released 5 Dec 2008
JBoss 5.1 released 23 May 2009
With JBoss 6 now due for release later this year (2010), this book has become largely obsolete and can only be recommended to those still running JBoss AS 4.0.
