This week's giveaway is in the EJB and other Java EE Technologies forum. We're giving away four copies of EJB 3 in Action and have Debu Panda, Reza Rahman, Ryan Cuprak, and Michael Remijan on-line! See this thread for details.
I believe we should help people here as best we can, however "dumb" their questions might sound to you.
Sorry please ignore this reply its just for testing...
