A great read aloud book!
I got this book from our library 3 months ago and have renewed it four times in a row! My 2 1/2 year old daughter loves it and I have to say I enjoy reading it to her. It has wonderful rhymes, rhythm and review (like the house that jack built) so it is lots of fun! I have my daughter guess the next word because the rhyming is generally predictable, it also teaches a little about colors and is just plain silly which makes it fun for all. At last I am buying my own copy so someone else can get it from the library!

For Reference Only
This book presents a nice overview of the primary components of J2EE architecture. If you're looking for gory details on J2EE technologies this isn't your text.

As with any multi-author book the writing style varies wildly. All the examples are extremely trivial. The important part is you get explanation about how all the fundamental pieces of J2EE work together and what they do. Everything from Java Server Pages, to EJBs, JNDI, JMS, Web Servers (no real coverage on Web Services), different app servers, JAAS, JTA, etc.

Nice reference book for high level or simple questions when you're trying to learn the ropes. Basically useless for any hard core implementation efforts.

An excellent book for J2EE overview
This book is its complete but contains a concise compendium of all J2EE fundamentals and technologies. The material is easy to read and code is easy to follow. I have not seen any other book that covers all J2EE-based technologies in detail that this book covers. I have also put this book as a textbook for my J2EE course at UTA. This book gives a comprehensive coverage of all J2EE technologies, concepts, APIs and components. Each chapter in the book can be independently studied and read in any order which is one of the best selling points of this book. This book is an excellent introduction book to J2EE which also makes it a highly seeked textbook for J2EE courses. This is also an excellent hand-on book.

Good Reference
This book has it all. It talks about all the different Java technologies and provides enough detail to learn them thoroughly. Although there are some differences in the presentation due to different authors, every chapter is explained well. This book is a good reference due to its in depth discussions. Very ideal for java architects and senior developers who do design and architecture.
