Hi Authors,
Very nice to see your offer.
First of all, I don't know anything about Software Pipelines.

So can you brief me, what does the book cover and how does it help an LAY program user.
I worked in Mainframes, Java technologies.
So how this is going to boost my career.
What are the employment oppurtunities with this technology?
What are the applications to this technology?
So what should i need to learn this technology?

The book is intended to provide an overview to someone totally new to the concept of scaling business applications. If you have a basic working knowledge of development, and Java experience, it should be fine.

As far as helping your career, I know that there are many organizations struggling with how to implement scalable business applications. While a typical Web application is fairly easy to do and automatic with existing application server technology (Tomcat, JBoss, etc.), Software Pipelines addresses scaling business critical applications where "order of processing" is a key concern. For example, with a banking application (this example is used throughout the book), you must ensure that accounts are updated in the right sequence -- otherwise someone can inadvertently (or intentionally...) overdraw their account. To enforce a business rule like this requires sequence, so what is needed is a flexible, transparent way to handle it. That is where Software Pipelines comes in, it allows you to write your business functionality without concern for scalability, then implement the scalability in the runtime environment -- all while preserving critical business rules and without low-level multi-threaded coding.

You can learn pipelines from the book and the reference framework at: http://www.softwarepipelines.org. The examples are detailed and all code is available on the site.
