Since this Enterprise Java Book is based on Web sphere. Will that not limit the market share of the book? Again how relevant is this book going to be for one who does Enterprise programming on other web/app servers

Looking at the details on Amazon, I believe the book covers the intricate details of WebSphere in the way it relates to building enterprise wide J2EE apps.

Well, 34% of the application server market is still an ENORMOUS market. WebSphere is the most popular application server according to all the latest analyst reports, so I have no problems with limiting my market to that...

Kyle, your first book got very good reviews because it went beyond the nuts and bolts concepts of building an application. Reviewers claimed it provided insight into why one does things and why one does not do things. Can we expect the same in the 2nd Ed.?
