First a big thank you to Jeff Linwood and David Minter for hanging out with us this week, answering questions. Also, thank you to Apress, for donating four copies of Building Portals with the Java Portlet API, to our winners.

The winners are...
-Taka Chan
-David Ulicny
-Junilu Lacar
-Anand Gondhiya


Congratulations! Please send me your preferred snail mail address and phone number by sending an email to bookpromotion AT javaranch DOT com with the subject "promotion winner - Portlets" and I'll forward your information to the publisher.

Didn't win? No worries. Each new week brings more chances.

This week we're promoting two great books from Prentice Hall PTR.
  • Core Java 2, Volume I - Fundamentals (7th Edition) by Cay Horstmann and Gary Cornell in our Java in General (intermediate) forum
  • and Working Effectively with Legacy Code by Michael Feathers in our OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum

  • See the Book Promotions page for more information on future promotions.

    Congratulations to all winners, and thanks for Jeff and Dave to be with us for a week.

    However, Dirk, seems that one of the winners Dave Minter is the author of the book!

    Hurrah, and a fine prize it is too... although I do still have five copies in a box on my desk.

    In view of which, Dirk, perhaps you could pass "my" copy on to Nick here, who's asked some interesting questions in the last week.

    Unless Jeff's short of a copy...? ;-)

    Dave.

    Nicholas, thank you for pointing out my mistake. Sometimes I wonder about myself... :roll:

    The correct winner was "David Ulicny" not the author, "Dave Minter".

    "Dave" ... "David" ... Same thing, right?

    Ah, well, in view of that, perhaps Nick could drop me an email, and I'll arrange to send him a copy instead.

    Dave.

    Dirk, yup, they are in fact similiar. I messed up in the first day of the promotion as well.

    Dave, thanks a lot.

    By the way, I still have some more questions about portal applications wanna discuss with you, will you still be here this week?

    Sure, I'll try to keep half an eye on the Web Application Frameworks forums from now on for any other portlet related questions that crop up.

    Dave.
