Sajith, I assume you mean this week's giveaway book. I'd say it is very important for J2EE, but for a different reason than design. Most J2EE systems I've seen interact with other systems across organizational boundaries. If the various groups do not work well together, it is unlikely that the systems will work well together. Our book focus on the groups and how they operate. Dave
