Manning Early Access Program Introduces Eclipse Book
(MEAP)
Greenwich, CT April 21, 2003 --- Manning Publications last week
began an innovative program through which developers can learn a
hot new technology long before books on the topic appear on book
shelves. Manning's Early Access Program (MEAP) delivers individual
chapters electronically, as they are finished, to those who subscribe
to this program and then delivers the book when it is released.
The first book introduced through MEAP is "Eclipse in Action."
Eclipse is a hot open source IDE and there are currently no other
books on it. "Eclipse in Action" covers how to work with this open,
extensible IDE for "anything and nothing in particular." The book
demonstrates how to build, test, and debug applications using
Eclipse tools and third-party plug-ins, and it does so in the popular
test-driven style common in agile programming. It also teaches how
to develop new plug-ins and covers the Eclipse UI library, SWT.
Through a MEAP subscription, developers can start downloading
individual chapters of "Eclipse in Action" as soon as they are finished.
In mid-May they will receive the complete PDF ebook.Those who
like paper can choose the MEAP E+P package, which includes
individual chapters, the complete ebook, and a copy of the printed
book, straight off the presses, in early June.
More details and ordering information on a MEAP subscription to
"Eclipse in Action," are available at: http://www.manning.com/gallardo

Hi Jessica, there's a full stop (point) at the end of the URL link at the bottom of the page. Can you remove it please? Thanks, Barry

I am so glad to hear that more publishers are finally beginning to offer the opportunity of receiving a pdf version of the book along with your purchase of the actual hardcopy book. I hope this becomes the norm rather than the exception. Kudos to Manning on what sounds like an excellent program.
