Hello author,

Are you planning to write a book on J2EE design patterns?

Elisabeth had mentioned that the authors have been thought for this issue seriously. But then, would there be a big difference with the book J2EE Core patterns.

Well, the explanation style and writing style would be a big difference... HF would make the readers more understandable than the CORE technical book like J2EE Core Patterns...

But if people can still go around with that book, it would be alright... But people might prefer good presentation style...

Nicolas,

Do you know of the GoF's book? Are there any diffrences with HFDP? If you talk of patterns, then I agree with you that both books cover the same patterns. But I'll disagree with you if you talk of presentation and style. Due to presentation someone may understand a particular pattern well and quicker with HFDP than with GoF's book. If everyone thought like the way you think then there would have been exactly one book per subject area. Fortunately thats's not the case. We need choice, don't you?

Regards,

Francis

Yes, we are seriously considering it. And it's always a different perspective on the topic, although obviously there would be a lot of overlap with core J2EE patterns. Remember though, Head First books really are geared to *learning* while the core book is part reference book as well, and it makes for a very different feel to a book.
