I open this topic just to speak about the 2nd edition of this book.
This book is really nice etc... BUT the 2nd has been released to fit with JAVA EE 5. I know that specs hasn't changed but if you release a second edition you have to fit with JavaEE 5 and so J2SE 5!

In this 2nd edition, there's no use of generics and the web.xml is a JavaEE 4 web.xml...

I've just stand 2 days to get on my nerves with a bug because when you switch a web.xml from JavaEE 4 to JavaEE 5 you don't just need to change 2.4 by 2.5, xmlns url has changed, you've to replace "j2ee" by "javaee"

I'm quiet disappointed with this 2nd edition...

Hi

The HFSJ is solely for the SCWCD certification where you are not expected to know the Name Space and intricate changes as mentioned by you. Do not treat this as a developer's reference manual. You have plently of other books for that. Keeping in view the certification exam, this books is a gem

Really ? I thought it was made to fit SCWCD5.0, not J2EE5. SCWCD5.0 actually uses J2EE1.4 (Servlets2.4,JSP2.0).
