Too long and hard to understand.
That is a very misleading half truth. You would expect step by step instructions to write and deploy simple examples. Well the authors have decided to take a short cut instead. They say 'Here is a nice little example we have written the other day. And we will just tell you how to deploy and run it!. True, they 'discuss' the code in the text. But obviously that is not as good as guiding you through the process of building and deploying from scratch. As a result, you have to learn some stuff the hard way by struggling with error messages (for example how to set up library references in netbeans when creating Application Clients or how to edit the build.properties before using ant to create JMS resources etc are not mentioned)
In the preface you get a 'road map' diagram to help you 'navigate' through the tutorial. But that doesn't tell the whole story.For example the diagram doesn't really tell you that to learn about Message driven beans (which is around the in the middle of the book) you should first learn JMS( which is near the end of the book) Too many forward references makes this very difficult to use.
I am not saying it is completely useless. With a little pain and some googling you can stumble through this stuff very slowly. But it just could be an awful lot better.
Sun says they have simplified JEE so much with version 5. If that is so why can't they write a complete tutorial that readers new to JEE can read and work through step by step? The biggest criticism leveled against JEE is that it is too complex. By writing a better tutorial Sun can go a long way towards making JEE easier to use.
