Hi, Kyle,
do you plan to adapt the book for Websphere 6.0?
There must be some new features as it shall support J2EE 1.4...

Given the fact that it took us three years to get it updated from WAS 3.5 to WAS 5.0, then the possibility of getting one done for WAS 6.0 is pretty slim... WAS 7.0 maybe...
And actually, there's not a lot of new stuff in J2EE 1.4 from J2EE 1.3 as compared to what's changed since WAS 3.5 (J2EE 1.0).

Hi Serge,
Consider the case in Java Cert as well, you see that even SUN has released J2EE 1.4, however, the new SCBCD exam (released in Sep 2003) is still based on J2EE 1.3. This may mainly becos the latest technology may not be adopted by most of their clients. Most of them may still develop applications based on J2EE 1.3.
In fact, WebSphere 6.0 is just released, it may not be a stable version, we may still need to wait for some time so that IBM can provide a stable release.
Then, books can be written based on them. Of course, now, we may start writing the book by refering to the specification, however, IBM may change it if some of the modules are added or removed.
Please be patent for the new books.
Nick.

Hi, Nick,
It will certainly take some time for the industry to move to J2EE 1.4. But a good developer should be one step forward and start learning it right now.
I don't mind learning the specs, but a clever book will help a lot.

Hi Serge,
It is always an advantage that we learn some technology before it becomes popular. However, at that stage, there is only a small help.
Just like what I encountered with SCWCD 1.4 Beta now.
No books available, no one has really dealing with the exam. And the only resource is the specification, which is not that easy to read and understand.
But of course, for learning new features without a very indepth knowledge, it is always a good start.
Nick.
