Hello Sebastian,

This book looks useful for my boring job. Would this book help with both development and maintenance of legacy Java EE and current Java EE? Also, are there any working examples I can type out on my craptop and run without errors? ...strange errors that completely prevent me from saying "Hello World" for instance.

Also, I read your "About the Author" section on Amazon. What type of "motorbike" do you ride to conferences? I was envisioning a Vespa.

With this in mind did you try to cleverly tie in Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance to this book on JavaEE? This book would be amazing if it was an inner journey into the self as well as an outward journey into the technology of JavaEE. This could be sort of like watching The Wizard of Oz while listening to Dark Side of the Moon.

Thank-you for reading this.

Hi Kim,

Thanks for you entertaining post :-)

The book doesn't cover too much of legacy Java EE, mostly modern Java EE 8. Yes, there are code examples that are part of the package that you can take and run.

I own a Kawasaki ZX-636 bike ;-)

They gave me pumpkin ice cream. It was not pumpkin pie ice cream. Wiping my tongue on this tiny ad:
