Two quickies: does the book cover a specific framework or frameworks, or include information regarding implementation under existing frameworks (like Spring), or is it more general? Second, does the book cover distributed event processing (load-balancing, failover, etc) or is it primarily focused on single-machine processing?
The book is general and implementation neutral, however it provides a comprehensive use case and shows how it is implemented in different tools, some of them are downloadable versions of commercial tools and some open source. Examples of six different implementations can be found on the book's examples webpage
Chapter 10 of the book surveys topics that relate to non-functional properties, optimization and distributed event processing.
"Surveys" in what sense; provides examples, or mentions that such things exist? Thanks!

"surveys" means: list the various non-functional properties, the various performance objectives used in different application types, and also various optimization techniques to achieve the performance objectives, there is a brief discussion about each of them with references to further material mainly articles that provides deeper discussion on each topic.
While the main theme of the book is how to model event processing applications, we have dedicated some discussion to implementation issues and to issues that each developer of event processing application should be aware of (where things might go wrong)...
