Hi Michael and Thomas,

How timely, your book is. I recently started on a new project that is using Seam and Facelets with EJB3 and Hibernate.

My question is what is the target audience of your book?

The project I am on has a range of skill levels, from new Graduates to people with 10+ years exp. I know that there are a few people on the team that have been awaiting your book, what can we expect to be covered? and will there be something for all of us - from new beginners throught to Senior Architects?

Matthew

For fresh graduates, the book might prove somewhat difficult. You need to know Java EE basics like Object-relational mapping, component-based web framework, dependency injection etc. to fully enjoy the book.

But I do have hello world examples that will get people started.

Thanks for that Michael,

I think there are enough experienced developers and enough doc on JEE, ORM, etc for that to not be a large issue.

I guess that reading between the lines it sounds like the book will be helpful, as I guess from what you have said that it goes into depth on Seam and assumes that people will know most of the surrounding concepts.

Cool thanks

I think Management has put a copy on order

Mat
