Hi Nikhil, I have read some contents of the book from a book store. I think the book is basically taking about how we can write, compile, deploy J2EE applications with WSAD 5.x. It has covered a very small portion about how to configure the testing server, and deploy applications to it, but I dont think it is the configuration for the real WS server. (maybe similar, I dont know as that part is responisibilty of my teamates. ). I am going to learn this once I finish my tasks on hand. Nick.
There are already too many books out there about administration. I think a good development/deployment book is needed. I'm wondering if it is all specific to WSAD of if the reader could be using Eclipse? Sal

Eclipse is very different from WSAD becos Eclipse does not support J2EE and XML Debug perspectives by default. I have not used those functions in Eclipse, so I dont know whether there are any plug-ins for these modules. But WSAD basically supports all kinds of applications, like Java standalone, Applet, J2EE, XML, etc. In addition, it contains an Express Server that we can test applications developed under WSAD before we really deploy them into WS server. However, Eclipse does not support this feature. In general, I think there are many white papers, articles, and redbooks talk about the admin & configuration of WS. That's why Kyle releases a new kind of book that talks about how we develop and deploy J2EE applications under WS via WSAD. Nick
