Paul,

I will give a training course for some college students to prepare for SCBCD. Since I had read HF EJB and 2 sample chapters from your book, I would like to seek for your comments for the reference materials as well as the teaching aids.

Would you recommend your book for my course? Any issues I should take a look into?

Thanks.

Nick

Of coourse I'll be honored if you decide to use the SCBCD Study Kit for your course. For the classroom usability of this book, I will say the following:
1) Having a teaching/training background myself, the presentation style in the book is very consistent with the class room training. I have attempted to prsent the material in a logical learning sequence: a section builds upon the previous sections and a chapter upon the previous chapters.
2) Have the students download the exam simulator.
3) The students can discuss the topics in the book with other readers at the Author Online forum which can be accessed from
www.manning.com/sanghera
4) Also in the Author Online forum, the students can find the errata (or explanations).

On the same note, the SCWCD study kit and the SCBCD study kit combined nicely cover the topics covered in a typical Server Side Java Programming course.

Cheers.
Paul

Paul,

By taking about SCWCD Exam Study Kit, there is an appendix Exam Quick Prep, which provides tips for exam for each chapter. Do your book provide such appendix?

I think hand-on tutorials for building a simple application/system gradually will be very helpful.

I am "grabbing" the idea from HF EJB chapter 1.

Paul,

Did your book provide such example as well?

Yes, there are some useful appendices which include:
1) Exam Quick Prep.
2) Introduction to XML in order to help understand DD tags/elements.
3) Installation of Reference Implementation, and step by step demonstration of deploying and executing a very simple EJB application.
As you know, there is a complete information about the book including Table of Content at

Cheers.

Paul,

by step demonstration of deploying and executing a very simple EJB application.

Is it a sample for EJB application only for demo purpose or it is a complete application that fits each objective?

What I mean is, for example, when you talk about Session Bean, there will be an example for developing and deploying session bean. The same appears for Entity Bean and MDB. And each part is a puzzle of the full picture, when everything puts together, it forms the sample application.

Yes,
I need example on MDB too.
HFEjb didn't give that.
I still can't imagine how the JMS works in the real application manner.

You could read the IBM redbook. It gives an example on how to develop and deploy MDB using WSAD 5.0.
