Hi. I want to buy 3 PDF books and I need your suggestions : 1. Hibernate In Action After reading the 2 sample chapters from Manning, this book is wonerful, but the problem is Hibernate documentation is really tough ! Maybe I don't need to buy the ebook. 2. Spring In Action As the previous guy, the documentation simply rocks ! 3. Lucene In Action The job doesn't need Lucene, but I really want to know about this charming project. 4. AJAX In Action And how don't want to know about AJAX ? 5. Enjoy web developement with Tapestry. I really like Tapestry and this book is a treasure (Thanks Gregg). 6. JavaServer Faces In Action Well, I don't like JSFalot, but it is a standard. So, what do you think ?
It depends on what you really want to read !! What are your priorities ? You might want to read Lucene last.
There's a rumor about a second edition of Hibernate in Action, about Hibernate 3.0, but nothing sure. Some people think that it won't be released soon, so reading the online documentation might be enough.
