Only for greenhorns?
Rashmi : I do not know about the missing preview chapters.
If you are a bit desperate, I can send it across to you the chapters, I downloaded a few months ago from wickedlysmart.com site or could upload it to a free site. They are a few MBs in size.

Hello sample chapter fans!
We're mostly away from the Ranch this week, working on the new version of the SCWCD! Kathy is working on sample chapters for the EJB book, so it's not too late to send us suggestions!
When the new chapters are done, you'll be able to find them at either java.net, oreilly.com, or wickedlysmart.com. We'll keep everyone on this forum posted when they are available.
At this point, if you have a sample chapter, it's NOT a final version! The samples we made available a few months ago were "works in progress", and while the look and feel is accurate, the final chapters are different.

I recommend buying the real book, 1st edition, before they get sold out...

Hey Bert,
any sample chapters for Head First Quantum Physics (mentioned in HFEJB) yet? Having a hell of a job getting through Feynmans' stuff at the moment. Problem is to get me threads reversing in time before I hit the AntiMatterException.

Rashmi,
As the preview file sizes were slightly big,(10MB) I couldn't send you via email.But I have uploaded at http://www.tripod.com
Log in with the foll. details (click on the members icon at the top)
login : javadrink
pwd : coffee
Go to Build & Edit menu option displayed at the top, select File manager menu option.
Click on the foldername HFEJBBetaChapters, and download the 6 pdf files.
Let me know if you have any problems......

Barry -
We'll be using spooky action at a distance to deliver that book, so it'll be delivered to you shortly before we send it.
As for the sample chapters, when we post them, anyone will be able to download them.

Rashmi,
Sorry about that.....I guess lycos has some restriction on the number of users accessing the site at the same time. That's a free account, so couldn't really share the files, without giving you the login details.
I have uploaded them again and have sent you an email containing the new login/details...
Hope this helps...
