This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
No, we don't cover SAR files. We thought about them, but we didn't need them to deploy JSPs, Servlets, EJBs, Hibernate, JAAS, or Web Services. Since this represents 95% (if not all) of what you'll need, we didn't feel it fit with the rest of the book. Our goal was to avoid internals and just help people do their job - developing and deploying J2EE applications on JBoss.
