An excellent book


I owe to this book (and some exam simulatiors but specially to this book) a 100% score on the SCBCD exam. In spite of some minor bugs this book provides an outstanding, original and amusing way to learn this complex technology and to pass the SCBCD exam.Bert, Kathy, I'm looking forward for your new book on design pattern. Thanks.

Good book but can not count on it entirely


It is a nicely structured book for Oracle9i DBA upgrade exam. The author tries to cover all the topics but lacks the depth. You have no choice other than to refer other documentations from Oracle in addition to get a better score in the exam.Of course, everybody I saw on the reviews were pessimistic about the book. I would consider this book as a better support for the exam. All I insist is to peruse every page of this book. Of course, It does have some grammatical and syntatical errors. I just overlooked them all instead of writing a letter to the author to inform of all those dopy mistakes.

Good for students


If this book is a required reading in a college junior level computer architechture design course, then this book excellently serves that purpose. However, as a reference, this book is poor considering the slow pace at which concepts are developed.

High Level - Good introduction to SONIC's view of ESB


This book makes a lot of sense when you know how the SONIC ESB works. Whatever is being discussed here is a reflection of the product. So I think the product came first and then this book. However; still good reading material and intro to the goals and the architecture of ESBs.
