Manning has now released the print editions of: Art of Java Development and JUnit in Action
"Art of Java Development" covers topics required for state of the art web development, including Struts, Tapestry, Commons, Velocity, JUnit, Axis, Cocoon, InternetBeans, and WebWork. By building the same application in six different frameworks, the author provides an evaluation of the pros and cons of each. Best practices are covered, including sophisticated user interface techniques, intelligent caching and resource management, performance tuning, debugging, testing, and Web services.

"JUnit in Action" is a discussion of practical testing techniques written by a recognized expert. It shows how to write automated tests, the advantages of testing a code segment in isolation from the rest of your code, and how to decide when an integration test is needed. It provides a valuable--and unique--discussion of how to test complete J2EE applications. To read sample chapters or order the book go to www.manning.com/massol .
