Hello,
I have the 1st edition and can say that this is a singularly important book.
Now I'm using it while working on my SCEA project.
Question. In June and July 2003, two versions of the 2nd edition were published: one by Sun, and the other is a Poster Edition published as "a Prentice Hall Title". (Different ISBN's) Although the contents are the same as far as I can tell, who wouldn't want the poster edition? I've seen it in someone's office - real nice.
John

Do you have the ISBNs or links to the two editions of the book? I can only find one entry of the 2nd edition at Amazon and it's the same as the one I found from Prentice Hall.

Hi,
Both versions can be found at Barnes&Noble:
http://search.barnesandnoble.com/booksearch/results.asp?WRD=core+j2ee+patterns&userid=150NBSXSES&cds2Pid=946
June 2003 0131422464
July 2003 0131058436 poster edition. (should call it 2.1th edition )
Ignore the first of the three versions of this book at the link above because that’s the 1st edition.

The poster edition's only difference is that it comes with a poster you can hang on your wall at home (as it won't fit into your cubicle at work ).
I would say a bigger attraction for the poster edition is that it's $5 cheaper than the regular edition...
