Hi David,

I posted before asking you about TDD in Java EE5. Since I was told to post with my full name, instead of following the previous topic I decided to start this new one.
Do you work with a real example through your book? I got Pro NetBeans IDE 5.5 a while ago and it does explain how to do different things in Java EE, but I was a little disappointed with the examples.
Do you consider your book covers all the topics in such a way that a reader familiarized with Java SE could actually create a real world application?
Thanks,

Marcelo Ruiz.

Most book examples are simple, since I feel that using "realistic" examples results in a lot of extraneous code that has nothing to do with the topic at hand. Most of the examples are self contained, focused and to the point.

There is a chapter that builds a semi-realistic application using most of the APIs discussed in the book.

I feel confident that a reader starting with little or no Java EE knowledge (but with some Java knowledge) will be able to create real world applications after reading the book.

David,

Thanks for your reply.
I feel that your choice of having a semi-realistic application was a great idea. For some self-taught independent programmers like myself, it's of paramount importance.
