Comments about oreilly Professional Java for Web Applications:
I bought the book in order to learn about JEE, hoping it would be complete and easy enough to follow.
The content, the topics the author talks about are good and helpful.
It has code samples and projects for both the Eclipse and IDEA IDEs. The problem is that it misses steps to gather all that is needed to follow the book! For instance, the code samples are for Java 8, but the Java EE SDK7 comes with Java SE SDK 7, not 8. Also other instructions for setting the compiler and the debugger for Tomcat are not clear enough. And the online resources are not helpful.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
