I believe that the book covers all areas on how to setup and configure project development on WSAD, becos it is one of the major objectives about the 287 test.
Personally, I think it is quite difficult to setup all stuffs and make them run well, especially when I come to the part of DB connection pool and Entity bean pool. I found them difficult to configure becos I used around 1 week time to make all stuffs work fine.
I do hope Howard can give us some hints on setting up the basic environment that suit for scalible application development.

Does this book cover best practices for project setup within the WSAD environment? There are several ways to setup project - especially projects that contain many components (EJB, Web...). I've always wondered what the right way is.
I suspect that chapters 13 (Packaging and Deployment) and 14 (WebSphere Administration) deal with the issues you raise. Also, you will probably want to check out chapters 8 (Transactions) and 9 (Security) as well as the chapters dealing with the individual components. Hope this helps.
