Hi Kyle,
At Amazon, I found that your book coverage includes´┐Ż
1. Practical introductions to J2EE, WebSphere Application Server 5.0, and Web application architecture
2. Detailed coverage of Web application construction, including MVC partitioning with Struts, servlets/JSP, and session management
3. Step-by-step guidance for building and testing application business models, including JUnit testing
4. In-depth insight into EJB architecture, including transactions, security, and advanced object relational mapping
5. Web services: examples and best practices leveraging WebSphere Application Server 5.x's latest enhancements
I am just wondering how much depth you are covering for the topics listed above? It certainly seem to me that you have tried to cover all the aspect of J2EE plus some open source technologies plus WebSphere.
Do you expect the audience to be well aware of J2EE/WebSphere before starting of with this book?

Hi -- we certainly don't expect the reader to be a J2EE expert, but it's not a bad idea if this is the "second" J2EE book a person reads. We cover these topics in exceptional depth -- the book is almost 1000 pages -- but since we go into so many advanced topics, it's best if the reader has at least a basic idea of what J2EE is before they start reading our book. Otherwise they may find themselves reading it once for an overview, and again, for the in-depth understanding.
