First a huge thank you to Hans for being here this week. I hope you will come back when the fourth edition of your book comes out. Or perhaps you can come back to discuss your JSF book which is coming out shortly.
The winners are:
Jeroen Wenting
Al Kaiser
Raul Martinez
Lasse Koskela

Congratulations to all our winners. Please send me your snail mail address and I will see that the book gets sent out to you.
Meanwhile, I have some bad news. Next week's promotion has been cancelled as the author has an emergency situation that prevents him from being with us. I am trying to schedule another promotion but as of now it appears that we will not be having a promotion next week.

I'll put it to good use, finding ways to indoctrinate proper coding technique into the other project members who now still make use of copious amounts of scriptlet code.

Switch to Velocity. That will break them of that habit.

hehe. They had already written their own MVC framework before I came on board...
Works well enough, but why reinvent the wheel?
They just need time to get used to new ideas, this is their first time ever using JSP and Java and they never had someone with experience using Java to help them out, just some examples from a beginners' course...

Congratulations to all winners and I do want to thank Mr.Bergsten for being here, answering almost all of our queries...
This time I can clearly see how much the book promotion is precious, according to this thread I had started... Not meaning that the giveway books are precious, we do need to know that the opportunity to talk with such great authors are far more precious than the books... For more info, that thread might be able to explain this...

Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to the author and publisher!
It looked like quite a lively discussion, I hope the books come in very handy.

The book is certainly of great help -- I decided not to participate the SCWCD beta partly because I didn't feel like printing out the specification to learn the 2.0 stuff... Now I don't need to
