Yes. I feel the book is particularly suited for just that.... Not that the material is basic.... Each chapter has a step-by-step example for getting started with the technology (e.g., Validator framework, Tiles, etc.).

I think many books get into the wow factor about the technology, and considering all of its possible applications without covering how to get started.
Most folks new to a technology want a little background and then some instructions to get started, then some more detail.
I try to never neglect the step-by-step getting started with new technologies.
I know what it does... now show me how to do it.
Writing step-by-step instructions is not as fun as pontificating about technology, but it is much more useful for real developers.
