This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I think this post is applicable here, too. Ted Osborne, co-author of the "J2EE Performance Testing using BEA WebLogic Server" and "Professional EJB," will be hosting a one time on-line presentation: "J2EE Performance, from Design to Test" on November 13th at 1pm EST. Every registered user of JavaRanch is welcomed to attend. To sign up or read the abstract, go through Ted Osborne's performance site at http://www.tedosborne.com
