Hi Brian,

I can see from the glowing reviews that your book is already a hit. I was wondering if it would have looked real 'cool' (not that it already is'nt!) if the following were covered

Maven for build instead of ANT (I do admit that i often notice people fighting over this)

WebWork for MVC + Tapestry instead of Struts

and the fact that its about Enterprise java development may be something covering the following areas as well:

A open source Single Sign On solution?, not sure if there is one!
Open LDAP?
and may be some Rules Engine (Jess may be?)

Just some thoughts...

Karthik,
Thanks for the nice comments. Your list includes many of the projects that were planned in the original outlines of the book and some that even got some writing started. The problem is that just with what we had we were going over the 600 page line and publishers are rarely happy when you tell them that! ;-) There is a strong possibility of a 2nd volume (not discussions have been started but the thought is there) to cover more presentation frameworks, more web services tools, Maven (originally in the mix) and Rules Engines such as Drools. Single Sign On did cross our minds but we drew a line on the sand about using ONLY Java-based open source projects and as fas as I know there wasn't anything for SSO that was Java based.

P.S. I don't like Struts either (that's all Chris), I'm a Tapestry convert and now I'm really digging Laszlo

Regards,
Brian

Brian, and others,

You may or may not be aware of this offering: jCIFS web page

My current employer uses that library to authenticate users; one caveat: it's IE-only, at least that's all we use here and I've not been able to FireFox to play nice (Mozilla might).

YMMV
