This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Although I am very experienced with distributed technologies, I am a newbie to J2EE, and I am concerned with the amount of 'magic' that J2EE 5 seems to support/require, particularly with respect to resource injection using attributes. This approach is certainly succinct and simple -- when it works. However, if you screw up, my limited experience has been that it is difficult to debug the problem by any method other than inspection. Does Netbeans provide any support in this respect, and if so, is it covered in your book?
