I've never really used JUnit, but really need to get up with the speed.
So I need a book that explains sound basics & concepts with good hands-on

I checked the previous threads and found the following books,

"JUnit in Action",
"Test Driven Development: A Practical Guide",
Kent Beck's "Test Driven Design by Example",
Hunt's and Thomas' "Pragmatic Unit Testing",
Link's "Unit Testing in Java", and
Derek Lane's O'Reilly title "JUnit: the Definitive Guide"

I'm really confused which one book to choose.
Please suggest a nice book with sound concepts and hands on that brings the reader up to speed.

My another question is,

Can somebody provide me with links or good books for learning JMock?

i have gone to JMock website, but just checkin if anybody have come across some really cool links/books that would help beginners with some hands on?

Hi everybody,

So far I have been working on core java and some JDBC/Servlet/JSP stuffs.
I am keen to broaden my knowledge on Enterprise & J2EE sides.

I searched in all forums and gathered the following.

1) EJB 3.0 is the latest on EJB. Best book to start with is EJB 3 in Action
2) Spring/Hibernate are excellent frameworks and good to learn and get involved.

My questions are,

1) How JPA different from EJB/Spring/Hibernate? How do they fit together in bigger picture?
2) If I need to learn JPA, what book/besk links do you suggest for a beginner, but keen to learn and practice to an expert level?
3) For frameworks like Spring/Hibernate, which books do you suggest, again for a beginner, but keen to learn and practice to an expert level?

All answers are much appreciated.
This is my first post in Java Ranch as I have joined a couple of days ago

So if I have mistakenly posted or done anything wrong then please notify.
