Question about the book : 'Art of Java Web Development'

Hello Mr. Ford,
I went through the index of your book 'Art of Java Web Development' and found the listings quite interesting.
I was wondering if your book explains how to optimize the java code and when to select a particular framework over the other.
Most of the books do explain all frameworks or technology in detail but hardly offer a justifying comparison , giving examples of real-life projects, on how to handle a particular situation during the project life cycle.
Thanks

I devote an entire chapter to real-world comparisons between frameworks, to help the reader build a good comparison criteria. One of the strengths of my book is that is does cover multiple frameworks, and compares them on equal ground, which is a fairly unique approach.

I also have a chapter on performance tuning, which covers both how to measure performance and to enhance it. The chapter on Resource Management covers how to effectively tune your web applications for higher scalability and/or performance.
