Has anyone managed to get chapter 15 code example up and running without any difficulties?
Does anyone know if there are any errors within the code?
I have looked at Wrox's web site under errata, but it dosn't list any for this chapter.

I've just completely rewritten that chapter for the new edition of the book (out in March to coincide with JSP 2.0). Although I must confess I did not try to get the original code running -- it was a substantial rewrite -- I may be able to help you. What errors are you getting?

I'm not!
I'm thinking about buying the book, but heard that there were a lot of bugs in the code. I also heard that there was no errata page - but thought I'd double check this first with some ranchers.
I think I'll wait for the new edition.
Basically I'm looking for any books that have good working examples of an on-line store using JSP and mySQL or MSAccess - any other books worth looking at?

Well Bill Brogden and Chris Minnick's "Java Developers Guide to e-commerce with XML and JSP" contains some pretty good examples, and is generally worth a read. It uses the "Hypersonic SQL" pure Java database, so you don't need to mess around with installing a database at all if you don't want to - just pop a jar in the classpath. Using a different database instead is pretty easy too. Checkout the review in the bunkhouse.

Well, if you end up buying the new edition and you can't get the code to work, you know whom to talk to

Don't mention MSAccess in the same breath as MySQL please
Regarding other books, check out The Bunkhouse. Marcus Green rated Professional Java E-Commerce highly, although it's getting a bit old. The Java Petstore is an excellent, extended application to study, although you wouldn't necessarily approach a real-world project in that way.
