Hello,

Many companies that use Java/J2EE also use technologies that are not just Servlets/JSP/EJB, they also use different frameworks like Spring, Struts, and so on.
Will this book help us about these other subjects too? Or it only covers oficial Sun technologies (Servlets/JSP/JSF/EJB) ?
We also have many types of vendors, like Sun ,BEA ,IBM, etc. About application servers, which one will be covered: Glassfish, Sun One, JBoss, Websphere, WebLogic,..., which one?

These are all frameworks which are again mostly build on Java/J2EE platforms and the base beneath should be stronger.

It does cover Spring and struts. It does cover Application Servers and Web Servers in general but not specific servers. How often does someone get interview questions on specific Application server like Webspgere or IDE like Eclipse unless you apply for the Websphere administrator role or some thing. Most interviews concentrate on language fundamentals, specification fundamentals, software development process, design concepts, design patterns etc. This where this book can be very handy.

Only partly agree -- about the non app server need. When I interview JEE stuff, I do concentrate on fundamentals -- but also drill down to specific servers. Luckily, I have experience in the three big application servers, and can dive down "into the weeds" during the interview. (Some, not as well, but enough)

The reason that this is important is because, someone who has no strong application server experience probably don't have strong JEE experience either. You can pretty much tell experience from the "war stories", which generally involve a particular application server.

I agree with you in a sense that experience with one particular applicattion server is handy e.g JBoss,Glassfish, Websphere but not a specific application server. It is a plus to have a specific application server experience but should not be the key factor in assessing an interview candidate.

The IDEs is something thay also make questions many times: "which one do you use: Eclipse? Netbeans?"
But I think that even if you are not an Application Server administrator, the interviewer may asks if you know how to deploy an application, or configure a LDAP connection. So, I think it would be very useful if you could describe these kind of tips (very breafly), at least for the most popular vendors. But I also know that maybe it won't have too much space in the book to put all these things.
 
Space seems cool in the movies, but once you get out there, it is super boring. Now for a fascinating tiny ad:
