Sun's Java Studio Creator makes use of JavaServer Faces (JSF) to allow visual development similar to Microsoft's Visual Studio. It is an easy to use IDE that allows you to drag and drop components, validators, and converters to build a web application. Much of the code required is automatically generated by the tool. This book a well-written and easy to follow step-by-step tutorial that will teach you how to use the IDE and quickly create web applications.

The book starts with a chapter on Java that can be easily ignored. The next chapter gives a quick introduction to the IDE. The authors demonstrate many of the basic techniques and show how to use the visual features to create navigation for a multi-page web site. The third chapter discusses each of the JSF components that are available in the IDE. Chapters four and five demonstrate how to use these components to build a web application. The examples are simple but show how to integrate the generated code with generated beans. Chapters six and seven show how to integrate Web Services and databases into your application. Chapter eight looks at internationalization and writing custom validators. The final chapter covers debugging.

If you have a copy of the software and want to utilize it to the fullest then this book is well worth buying. If you don't have the software then look at ISBN 0131499947 to purchase the book and the software together.
