This is best asked in its own topic - this is a welcome topic after all. Its more likely to get answered and you would be eligable for the book draw.
Many examples , how to use with EJB and many more..
Its a bit complicated though for beginners but its ok to understand some basic stuff.
I payed for it, but I do not regret!
The distance between the lines is bit narrow, probably because of the much stuff in the book. The illustrations in it seem very clear.
I just read the introduction which reads very good and woke some very high expectations.
Cite: "Storing and retrieving data ist a multibillion dollar business" => seems to be a truth, therefore Oracle eat Sun !
Up to now data storage was a thing of lower importance. Beginning to read your book, it seems to me more than before that this book deals with a VERY IMPORTANT subject.
