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.
