Hi Kyle !
Could you tell me if your book is dedicated to a specific websphere release (v4, v5, v6 maybe ??)
Does it cover web services with WebSphere. If yes, according to wich release (so which implementation: Apache SOAP or JAX-RPC?)
Bonus question : Does WebSphere 5 contains a JAXB implentation ?
If yes, is it covered in th book ?

TIA,
/Jean-Louis

Does the book come with a CD?

No I am looking for a copy of WSAD without downloading it. IIRC it's a huge package, maybe two CDs. You know where I could get a copy?

You could obtain this CD if you are IBM Partner.
Otherwise, I don't know.

Hi,
Does this also help with the new Sun certification exam 310-090 for EJB which was released recently.
Thanks

I seriously doubt an IBM WebSphere book will help with a Sun EJB certification. However, it would probably be of great help for IBM WebSphere's certifications.

1) I checked with a friend who works at IBM with wsad pre-sales and he is not aware of a free lite version of wsad like they had with visual age for java. I would be curious about a free single user websphere app server like some other vendors have--didn't ask him about that.
Many vendors provide these kind of freebies for people to mess with at home in order to build up mindshare when the topics come up at work.
2) Does the book cover app server stuff as well as wsad? Is it set up to provide complete coverage for a certification exam?
3) Used wsad a lot this year. Like vaj, it is not a program, it is a city, and one can use it for years and still be discovering features and tricks that you didn't know were there.

Srikanth Gubba - go to this JavaRanch Forum. You will find out everything about 310-090

I am confused by all the development packages for J2EE. I have downloaded weblogic and tried its studio a bit. But it appeared to have these "control" interface classes wrapped around everything. It did not look portable. But I would assume the jar files produced by weblogic can run on any J2EE "compliant" platform. Is this true? I assume this is also true for WebSphere(which I started to download, but on my 56K modem would have taken half a day. They would not mail me a CD, like BEA did).

Does the book cover in greater details in using XA between for JMS and DBMS transactions?

As far as I know, the WebSphere Technology Preview for Developer is free.

It appears that Kyle's book covers WebSphere Application Server 5.0 and the CD-ROM included provides trial copies of IBM WebSphere Studio Application Developer (Version 5.0.2),IBM WebSphere Application Server (Version 5.02), and DB2 Universal Database, Personal Edition(Version 8.1.2)
This book is a developers dream...

The answer is we cover WSAD 5.02 and (to some extent) 5.1. Thus we cover the Apache Axis implementation in WAS 5.02 from a command-line perspective, and also cover the Wizards for Axis in WSAD 5.1.
Bonus answer -- there is no JAXB in WAS.

It comes with THREE CD's. It includes a 60-day trial of WSAD 5.0, a 120 day trial version of WAS 5.0, the upgrade to WAS 5.02, DB2 8.1 and the sameple code for the book (whew!).

It might help a bit, but as the poster observes, it'd be much more helpful with the IBM WebSphere certifications.

One project that I am becoming involved in at work is a WebSphere project. I was recently in discussion with some of the team members about the persistence layer. Apparently the admin staff is saying that we have to deal with persisting on multiple app servers that are not clustered. Does this book cover whatever clustering facilities WebSphere has, and are alternate clustering strategies discussed in the book?
That may be more of an administration book topic, but I wasn't sure if this book's scope might include at least a treatment of the subject of clustering with WebSphere.
Thanks,

Yes, in great, gory, and excruciating detail.

Thanks,

We cover clustering in general from a theoretical level, and we cover HttpSession clustering from a practical level, but the focus of this book is on development, and not administration.

Yes, code developed in WSAD will deploy on *any* J2EE compliant platform.
