I own many books on servlet programming, jsp and ejb, not to mention JDBC and JNDI etc. I wanted a
book to address how to connect all of these in a cohesive structure. I am pleased to say that this book delivers on what it sets out to do.
The writing style is clear and concise with great diagrams and example snippets.
If, like me, you have been using servlets and other j2ee technology and want a good reference for linking all the elements you currently have and turning them into a solid, well/written product then this book...is for you.

I recently received this book and read it in one go. This is possible mostly because it's relatively short and covers a few things that are either so basic (what is a relational database) or outdated (EJB 2.0) that the only relevant sections are those covering architecture.
The title implies that does should be the grunt of the material but alas, it's little more than a basic overview of enterprise application architecture. Most of this book's content seemed a bit too basic and obvious to be of much use.
In short, there are better books out there.
