A good overview of a valuable technology
on 20 December 2010
Frameworks. How many of them we can handle? This book covers Java EE 6 which is a very valuable framework. It is a book for a beginner provided this beginner has knowledge of Java and of the design of enterprise level IT systems in general. There is no place for a 'hello world' example. It is somewhat compact written and guides you along the important aspects of EE6. It is less the complete reference manual of all possible options. You won't get drowned in details, which can be an advantage. It has a hands on approach, as it descibes how to set up an environment to start with Ant and Maven. However, I guess most people will turn to a more integrated development environment such as Netbeans or Eclipse. A little odd: code examples are tested on MS Windows only. I like it.
