Would the authors post a detailed TOC? The APress site does not do this and the Amazon view inside feature is not available for this book.

In particular, I want more information on migration from EJB2 to JPA 2 and "Best Practices".

Thanks for writing the book. We all understand that you don't get rich writing technical books. This is a "labor of love" and you sacrifice a huge amount of time making this book available to all. Again, thanks.

Hi Tim,

The basic TOC is:

Chapter 1 – Introduction
Chapter 2 – Getting Started
Chapter 3 – Enterprise Applications
Chapter 4 – Object Relational Mapping
Chapter 5 – Collection Mapping
Chapter 6 – Entity Manager
Chapter 7 – Using Queries
Chapter 8 – Query Language
Chapter 9 – Criteria API
Chapter 10 – Advanced Object Relational Mapping
Chapter 11 – Advanced Topics
Chapter 12 – XML Mapping Files
Chapter 13 – Packaging and Deployment
Chapter 14 – Testing
Chapter 15 – Migration

The first section in the migration chapter is about migrating from EJB 2.1 entity beans.

You are quite right about the compensation that authors get from technical books. If I calculated the hours that I have spent on this book and worked out the monetary value of that time I certainly would have been better off cleaning toilets at McDonalds. Writing books is a whole lot more fulfilling, though...

The TOC and sample pages are in the Google Preview of the book (link from author's signature)

Hi Vyas,
Apparently you have not done what you recommend. Why would you think I did not check the Apress site for the Tale of Contents? Additionally, there are no sample pages as you indicate.

Hi Tim,

Apress did not tell me that they were doing this (they hadn't done it on the last book, but it seems they have added it on now), but they now have a Google Preview of the first part of the book. It is not easily noticed, though, so I am not surprised that you didn't see it. It is on the Apress site just below the graphic of the book cover. Click on the Google Preview icon and you will get a mini-window that loads the first part of the book.

Amazon also provides a similar feature. If you go to the Amazon page and click on the book cover graphic then you will get a similar window (but bigger than the one on Google Preview).

Looks like it was not so "apparent" after all
