Hi David,

Just like to find out what this book is all about .....
In fact i have lotsa questions

By the title of the book, it seems that it will cover both jee 5 devt as well as netbeans 6 usage. Does the book cover brief explanation of major java ee 5 features (e.g ejb 2.0, jax-ws, JSF) before diving into how to use nebeans 6 to speed up the devt?

Throughout the whole book, is it using different small examples on the devt or is it a incremental type example base on 1 sample case study=petstore / online library syste/ etc? (e.g building database, usage of JTA, annotations, using jsf to build the gui part, etc)

i assume the book also cover deployment right?

which application server does the book referred to for deployment? glassfish? (another add on question does it mean the glassfish book and this has to be read TOGETHER? i hope not... heee)


that's all the qestion i caN think of now. will post again if i think of somethg new.

Oh.... i forget the most important question.....

does the book comes with a CD with all the code examples from the book and perhaps a sample running application that can be deployed on glassfish for testing?

Hi,

You can refer to the TOC of the book for a brief idea - https://coderanch.com/t/419439/vc/Welcome-David-Heffelfinger (currently the last post is the TOC)


Throughout the whole book, is it using different small examples on the devt or is it a incremental type example base on 1 sample case study=petstore / online library syste/ etc? (e.g building database, usage of JTA, annotations, using jsf to build the gui part, etc)


As mentioned in this post - https://coderanch.com/t/419470/vc/Coding-examples - each chapter has individual examples, and one chapter has a comprehensive example which covers all the concepts.


which application server does the book referred to for deployment? glassfish? (another add on question does it mean the glassfish book and this has to be read TOGETHER? i hope not... heee)


The book uses Glassfish to deploy the examples, but any other application server can be used in its place. Since the book covers standard Java EE 5, I don't think any Glassfish book is required.

What Rohan said.

It is not necessary to read the GlassFish book in addition to this one, they are independent of one another.
