This book thoroughly covers the Java 2 Enterprise Edition. For those that need to learn about a specific topic each chapter in itself can almost stand-alone and be read independently of the others or with minimal reference to other chapters in the book. The first part of the book gives a brief introduction to enterprise application development to put the reader in the right frame of mind. Along with a down and dirty SQL primer to make the JDBC section more meaningful. There are plenty of code examples throughout the book that further clarify the text and give more substantial examples of the topic being discussed. Some of the explanations seemed to cover some of the less used classes/methods in a little more detail than was warranted whereas a more thorough coverage of the basics would have been better served.
The CD includes all of the full-length programs from the book as well as a collection of evaluation software from various companies.
The stated audience is right on target too, if you have no prior Java experience this book isn�t for you, but for those looking to reach the next level and gain some knowledge of enterprise development then this is a good starting point. All in all this is a very good book and if not so big would make a handy reference.
