Hi,

I am completely new to JBoss.. Whether, this book helps me to kick start and make me a JBoss Developer?

Or, should i need to learn basics first before jumping onto this book?

Thanks in advance..

Looking at the TOC, it emphasizes more on how to work with EJB's by deployying them to the JBoss AS container.

Hi Ravi,
thanks for joining this book promo.

Well, when I started to write the book outline, my decision was to follow the same pattern I use at work when we need to start a new project but not all human resources are skilled on the application server. There, it's necessary to teach how to get running with JBoss AS in the shortest time possible and keep learning on the run, adding every day new things. This can be done with a good supervision and with the right tools.

So, answering to your query,this book doesn't require prior JBoss AS experience, though you should be familiar with Java EE concepts which are introduced at the beginning of each chapter but require, of course, further study.
good luck!

Hi Jothi,
Yes EJB are introduced at first in this book and they are used as main theme in other part of the book- (I mean the simple Application Store example is then enriched with the JSF layer, with Web Services connectivity, then clustered and secured.)
However in terms of "space" the EJB chapter accounts for about 30 pages, just the same as the JBossWS chapter or the MBeans/Service POJOs chapter.
Hope you enjoy reading it!
kind regards
