        Comments about oreilly Java EE 7 Essentials:

        My previous experiences with the author (Arun Gupta) have been positive and he has clearly presented the most salient parts of the new Java EE 7. Sadly, I can't tell if any of them are useful because my experience with Glassfish is limited, I don't have an instance available, and my preferred Java EE environment (Tomcat) hasn't gotten a polished release yet.

        So, although I like what I've been seeing, and I think I understand much of it, I'm not ready to make use of it.

        Comments about oreilly Java EE 7 Essentials:

        This book is something like reference guide about new features in JEE. If you do not know this specification from previous releases then it will not teach you. Some parts (especially CDI and few next sections) are much reference of syntax than explaining purpose of this APIs.

        Funny was stateless session bean code sample: AccountService with property balance. Next paragraph claimed that such bean shall not have state :-)

          Comments about oreilly Java EE 7 Essentials:

          This is the current reference manual outside the releases specifications of enterprise java version 7, aka. Java EE 7.
          It covers all the major libraries of enterprise java. This will be helpful to you if you are a student or even a seasoned professional as it provides the newly released libraries & api in a non boring manner.
          However, there is a need to have an additional source of information while reading this and developing applications using JavaEE7.
          Disclaimer: I received my copy of the book in its beta version through the oreilly's bloggers review program.

            I think that this one is next must have for all Java EE developers who doesn't like to browse through the Java EE specifications. As a Java EE developer you probably know how many specifications cover given Java EE release. If you keep your fingers on pulse that's fine, on the other hand, if you have stuck with some outdated Java EE release in some ancient project this book is a really nice refresher. It covers most essential topics and provides simple examples that show how to use particular feature of the platform. What's new here comparing to Java EE 6 Pocket Guide? You will find here description of JSON processing, Web Sockets, concurrency related topics, extended chapter related to java transactions, and two, really nice features of Java EE 7 – Face Flows and Batch processing.

            The concept of the book remains the same as for Java EE 6 Pocket Guide. Title was refreshed and slightly modified to be more groovy :)

            Anyway, definitely this one is something nice to have at your desk if you want to make a quick sneak peek at crucial technologies inside Java EE.

            Note! This book will not teach you Java EE! This is a reference. If you want to learn Java EE from the very beginning take a look at: Head First Servlets and JSP.
