Avoid like the plague

I bought this book expecting the enclosed CD to be a full tutorial. It is not. If you read far enough into the fine print it does say it is a trial (read demo) copy. To my sorrow I didn't see this; all I read was "100 before images" and "follow along with the book". Sounds great, but what you get is software that shows you what the real thing WOULD do if you bought it. Legal but morally reprehensible.

Decent book but too many typos

I tried to run those examples included in this book with the same versions of tomcat and jboss as used by Budi, but i always got some errors; the one that still makes me scratching my ass is the tassie online bookstore, i kept receiving "[Root exception is ava.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.jnp.interfaces.NamingContextFactory]", even with every possible .jar from jboss/client/ is included in the classpath.

This book makes far too many assumptions about the previous knowledge of its readers with regard to this topic. I wanted this book to learn more about this this subject. All it did was reinforce what i do not know.
