4.0 out of 5 stars Essential to every Coldfusion developer, but...., 24 Dec. 2002
This review is from: ColdFusion MX Web Application Construction Kit (Paperback)
Ben Forta's books have long been regarded as 'must haves' for any Coldfusion developer, and this book is no exception. Having already purchased previous editions of this book (for Coldfusion 4 & 5) the only thing that disappointed me was that although this book clearly covers all the MX features, around 3/4 of the books content is merely recycled from the previous edition.
Whilst I wouldn't be without this book, I feel better value would be obtained if Ben presented us with a different project - but here we are once again faced with developing applications for Orange Whip Studios. What's more, these applications are very much the same as the applications we created for OWS in previous editions.
As I stated in my review of 'Reality Coldfusion - Intranets and Content Management', I feel developers could learn much more if we combined both books together.
As a reference tool, this book is invaluable and I would highly recommend it to any developer. So much recycled content however prevents it from being awarded 5 stars.
