I have mixed feelings about this book. On the one side I was disappointed with it, I expected it to give me design guidelines for JMS applications, and on the other side I was pleasantly surprised, notably the coverage on SSL.
It's a pity the author did not take a complete JMS application and code it firstly using Simple Old Java Programs and then move on to the Websphere (WSAD) implementation. I think it would have greatly improved the learning process. But having said that the Websphere examples are great.
Personally I think the author could also have spent more time explaining JNDI. It's my experience that most JMS programmers do not understand JNDI adequately enough. Don't expect to get a deeper understanding of JNDI because of this book.
If you are starting of with JMS for IBM Websphere I can highly recommend this book, if however you are an advanced JMS (Websphere) programmer don't expect to learn much more, but if you have spare money lying around get it anyway.
