I have been impressed with the Netbeans implementation of web servers and databases, in particular the Services window, and the minute control it allows without having to have a console open to the web server itself.
I get the feeling though, that there are many other EE features I am not aware of which I could equally benefit from. Does the book cover Netbeans functionality and shortcuts, or does it concentrate mainly on the coding aspects of J2EE and how it integrates with Netbeans?

The book certainly covers a lot of NetBeans tricks to make our lives as software developers simpler.
For example, the book covers how it is possible to add resources such as JDBC connection pools, datasources and JMS message queues directly from NetBeans.
The book also covers how to automatically generate the data layer of an application from an existing database schema.
Additionally, the book covers how to automatically generate an "ajaxified" JSF web application from existing JPA entities.
On top of that, the book covers how to easily develop visually appealing web applications without being a CSS expert thhough the NetBeans Visual Web JSF functionality.
The above three features are only a highlifht of the NetBean features covered in the book.
