Hello

I was looking to buy the book Pro JPA 2 from amazon but I found two different books.

1) Pro JPA 2 (Expert's Voice in Java): https://www.amazon.com/Pro-JPA-Experts-Voice-Java/dp/1430249269/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1467810328&sr=1-1&keywords=Pro+JPA+2
2) Pro JPA 2: Mastering the JavaTM Persistence API (Expert's Voice in Java Technology): https://www.amazon.com/Pro-JPA-Mastering-Persistence-Technology/dp/1430219564/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1467810328&sr=1-2&keywords=Pro+JPA+2

Could someone please tell me which is the correct book to buy for the certification 1Z0-898?

Thank you in advance.

I am using the second edition (2013 Edition) although it also describes JPA 2.1 functionality.

There are notes to the paragraphs that contain JPA 2.1 functionality. You can safely skip them for the exam.

(JPA 2.0 is needed for the certification)

Hi, I bought the second edition of the book.
After I download the source code of the 2nd edition, I go to bin/startserver.bat to run it. But I get a path is not specified error message.
I then download the source code of the 1st edition. I copy and paste the 1st edition's config/common.properties and config/common.xml to replace the 2nd edition ones.
It works.
Also for chapter 3, I copy the etc folder from the 1st edition to those in the 2nd edition.
