I am reading HFE as I am reading J2EE spec 2.0. I noticed that on page 60, there is "(spec: 30)". I am trying to look this up in the spec, but what is "(spec: 30)"? what does 30 refer to? is that a page number in the spec? Please, help.

That means "see page 30 of the specification document we told you to download (on page xxiv - last bullet - and make sure you get the EJB spec (like 500 pages), not the J2EE spec)." <soapbox>I personally think refs to the specs in the CC's are not really in the spirit of head first, are they? Yeah, it's a good way to make sure everyone downloads and at least checks a few things in the spec, but I would think that the answers in a headfirst book would get me weeping over short-lived bean lives or telling me why one answer or the other was was really dumb because this is illogical or that's impossible, etc.</soapbox> Keeping things in perspective, though, I've never read a better programming book. --Dale--
