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 JSF alot, 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.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
