I noticed that the book does not have any discussion about how to Mavenize your application. It would be nice if it had a figure containing an example POM file and a discussion of how to select the right archetype and specify the necessary dependencies for a servlet/JSP application from Maven Central.

Yes, that would be a nice thing to have in the book. I have made a note of it. We will consider doing something like that for the next edition of the book.

There have been lots comments regarding whether NetBeans or Eclipse is the better IDE to use for the book. If the example project files and directories were organized following the Maven conventions, you should be able to import them into either IDE. You wouldn't even have to use an IDE at all since you could just do the build from the command line. You might also consider hosting the files on GitHub to make them easier to import.

Being able to have one set of source code files that could be easily imported into NetBeans or Eclipse would be very helpful to me. Thanks for the suggestion. I am going to look into Mavenizing our source code as soon as possible.

I also like your GitHub idea and will consider that too. Thanks!
