As much as the thought scares me, there will be times when people will be forced to integrate Java and .Net applications. If you are forced to do this, you will probably need to rely on a good resource to guide you through, I'm just not sure this is the one you should use.
Described as the "one-stop resource for .Net and J2EE interoperability", I felt it missed the mark in a number of ways. The most glaring omission is any description about interoperability between J2EE and .Net applications. The first seven chapters cover either Java or .Net, but are usually covered in isolation and neglect to mention how they could interact. The second last chapter is then a description of a third party package that provides a bridge between Java and .Net, but this is the only specific example given. It also has a tendency to view things from a .Net perspective, but it stops short of brainwashing.
The examples are too light for this to be useful as a reference, and there isn't enough information for this book to help you make architectural decisions. In the end, it is a nice read from an author that knows his material and it is a fair introduction to both J2EE and .Net technologies, but other than that it doesn't deliver on it's promises.
