Hello Francesco Marchioni,

Welcome to javaranch.

As you know, there are many online tutorials and books available on JBoss. I want to know what makes your book different?

Regards,
Abhijith P

Hi Abhijith,
well everyone has got his style when writing a book: I have tried teaching to the reader using a story-like approach which is simple but comprehensive at the same time. The book is focused on a very common IDE (Eclipse) so that it goes right to the heart of development.
Additionally the book has the advantage to be newer (covering up to the 5.1.0 release of the AS) as it was completed at the end of 2009. This is surely a "plus"...until the next JBoss book will be printed of course
regards
Francesco

Well the promo-week has gone and I do hope that the winners of the copies will be satisfied by the book.
Will gladly continue hunting for JBoss questions/issues in this forum......
see you later!
Francesco
