2.0 out of 5 stars This is a great introduction to JEE5 as long as you already know JEE! 21 Sept. 2007
By S. Umamaheswarampillai - Published on
Format: Paperback
The book description says "This book takes a task-oriented, example-driven approach to show you how to build applications for the Java EE 5 platform."

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 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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pulp fiction? 5 Aug. 2009
By Mike Pollock - Published on
Format: Paperback
I'm very disappointed in this book. It conveys little in the way of what goes in to the development, and deployment, of J2EE applications. You're left scratching your head, wondering, how a J2EE app.' went from code to production. There is no continuity in their step-by-step process (i.e. process of developing and deploying an EJB, etc.). It would've been nice if they talked more about descriptors and creating Ant files to deploy J2EE apps, but instead they rely on NetBeans. This book is another example of the industry spewing out trash just to make a buck!

1.0 out of 5 stars Buy this only if you already know Java EE 31 Mar. 2008
By Amazon Shopper - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book makes sense only if you already know Java EE, but in that case you don't need it. One of the worst tutorial I've ever seen. Wasted a lot of time trying to understand what it says, but that's so hard because it keeps referring to concepts that are be not covered until later chapters (forward referencing). The examples are working, but no clear explanation on what each of them does, how to reassemble them, etc. No step by step guide. Even concepts aren't explained well enough.
