This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Thank you for posting to JavaRanch. The Amazon.com writeup of the book states "Learn how to structure mobile web apps through a number of practical, real-world application examples." Are the examples portions of complete applications, or is there and end-to-end tutorial for some simple application?
I have found it much easier to adopt new software development skills based on detailed tutorials that accompany the more abstract concepts.
During the first 6 chapter, you will build a todo list app, from very basic to very elaborated at the end chapter 6, a lot of different concepts are artioulated around this sample app.
The rest of the book will be focused on building a geosocial Game , very cool !
My current favorite web application framework is the Play Framework. I really can't say how it compares overall to Spring MVC, JSF, Tapestry, Wicket, etc... but Play has a fabulous tutorial that introduces almost all of the major concepts it uses, and got me writing some non-trivial applications in less than a week. All of the others, at least when I looked at them, had less helpful introductions.

if you like Play! you should also check Grails, it's my favorite web framework and I contribute also for it by building plugins
