Nothing in the works besides some occasional ramblings, really. Certainly open to suggestions, though. Over the past year I've proposed a wide variety of topics, and had several friends introduce me to other publishers, too. I haven't had a bite yet, but it may be that I'm just not talking the language publishers want to hear.
How about something on application servers. There are lot of books in market about Java, JSP and Servlets. But I think there are only few books which explains fundamentals/needs for application servers.
That's a really good idea. My only hitch here -- I have very very specific ideas on what topics I would like to write about. It's hard for me to divorce all the stuff I like to play with in Solaris from the subject area, so I need a little perspective. What would you like to see covered in a such a thing? General principles and some example server types? Specific server type and all its ins and outs? Given my druthers, I'd do Sun One on Solaris/SPARC and probably spent too much time on the internals. What content attracts your wallet's/purse's attention?

I know there are several J2EE application severs in market and I think it would be difficult for any author to cover all server types. Since IBM websphere and ATG dynamo are common in most of the clients I work with, I'm looking for something which covers: - Difference between Web Servers and Application Servers - Choosing the right J2EE Application Server - Deploying J2EE applications on IBM Websphere/ATG dynamo server - Web Services - Performance enhancements I'm not sure if book which covers all these topics is already available. Have a nice weekend.
