Hi David,

I am currently only familiar with Java SE and ME. If I'm interested in EE, is your book a good entry point for beginners?

Hi,

Have a look at this thread -

http://www.coderanch.com/t/419469/vc/Overlap-Glassfish-book

It seems that this book is not a good entry point to learn Java EE from ground up, but the same author's other book on Glassfish fits the bill.

The books does not assume familiarity with Java EE or J2EE. Java knowledge is assumed.

You can certainly learn the Java EE APIs from the book if you are not yet familiar with them. The book illustrated many NetBeans features that will make your life easier such as:

  • Automatic generation of code to lookup JNDI resources such as datasources or JMS Queues
  • The ability to specify JSF navigation rules graphically
  • Automatic generation of JPA entities from an existing database schema
  • Automatic generation of ajaxified JSF CRUD applications from existing JPA entities
  • Visual development of JSF pages


  • The fact that you first learn how to develop Java EE application while taking advantage of NetBeans does not mean that you will be incapable of creating them without NetBeans, however, more than likely you will sorely miss NetBeans features when not using it.
