simple, detailed and complete


I have seldom read such a high quality technical book. It is highly simplistic with appropriate amount of details. The author explains all the newer features of EJB2.0 and other high end features like clustering etc. I highly recommend it to new J2EE developers.

Incredible cold fusion resource!


I looked up and down for the best cold fusion book for my specfic need...to build an enterprise quality content management system. I am a registered pharmacist and self taught HTML-based web developer who wanted to take a crack at cold fusion because of I heard it was the easiest to language to learn when developing dynamic web sites. Because I only knew HTML, I found myself using PHP code snippets from open source web sites to create some dynamic attributes to my pharmacy network's website (6 pharmacies). I originally wanted to have a simple "news publisher" so I could provide updates to the other staff. I grew frustrated because I didn't "really" know PHP and debugging was near impossible since I didn't know the code. Then along came this book, recommended by my sister who is a windows application programmer. She said Ben Forte writes the most comprehensive books/tutorials on cold fusion. She was exactly correct! Without getting into the details, I worked through this book from cover to cover and completed the tutorials on the included CD. 7 months later I have created a dynamic content management system for our pharmacy network that tracks transferred medications, provides news updates, online refills to customers, a daily revenue DB application for my director (which he can search by date range), an online store with customer history available, searchable policy/procedures online, etc. All this after only 7 months!! My advise for people is to learn HTML well before delving into Cold Fusion, but if you know HTML well, you will find this book to be your web design bible rather quickly. If I can do it anyone can...The hosptital I work for is even wanting to purchase the app from me now because it's such a valuable asset to the network's infrastructure. GO BUY THIS BOOK if you want to do something like I did with whatever business/site you want. With some dedication you can achieve it and not have to look further than this book.

5 STARS FOR SURE!!!!!!!!


I have always wanted to program computer games, but could only find a few horribly written, error filled books on programming for beginners. Then I bought this book: it was perfect. For once I finally understood how to use directx, I never thought I would. Lamothe takes you through learning windows and directx in a clear and coherent fashion, one step at a time. It doesn't get much better than this.

For my taste, O'Reilly cooks the best books!


I own several O'Reilly Nutshell handbooks (HTML, Perl, JavaScript, Java, etc.), and as far as I'm concerned, they're simply the best. I love the design, the structure, the readability, and everything else. When I want REFERENCE, I get O'Reilly. And JavaScript: The Definitive Guide is one of the best in the series. The only other JavaScript book I'd get is Netscape's OFFICIAL JavaScript 1.2 book (and that's just because David Flanagan hasn't completed his 1.2 edition).
