Hi everybody,
Has anybody read the book "Core J2EE(TM) Patterns: Best Practices and Design Strategies " by John Crupi, Deepak Alur, et al ?
How is the content different from what is at the J2EE Patterns Catalog ?
Is it worth buying the book or can we get most of the information from J2EE Pattern catalog ?
Thanks.
Robert

In addition to the pattern catalog it contains big(about 80 pages) refactoring block that describes common mistakes in design and suggestions for improvements, which is definitely worth reading.

Thanks.
If it covers design issues in addition to patterns and has some examples for the patterns, then its definitely worth spend money on.

Robert if you have seen the other discussions & the experiences of the people , they are saying that Eric Gamma's book is sufficient. Additional information is always welcome.

GoF books is sufficient for part I, J2EE Patterns book will give you a hand with parts II and III when you do design for your application.
I'm also thinking about real life situations that you will have to handle, unless you do certification just for the sake of paper on your wall.

I want to refer to the book as I am designing an application at my work here. I went through the J2EE patterns at the Sun Site but I always had questions whenever I tried to apply the patterns to the project. The new book with examples can clear a lot of the doubts.
I also plan to start with my Part II but I've been postponing it for a long time. I want to start it this week.
