Hi Cay good luck with the book.

In work the decision has been made to move from Java6 to Java8.

My question is does your book highlight in which java version new editions to the java language were made.

Well I would like to see a book where a non-trivial case study is done that actually works.

A lot of books I heave read either lack a project of any substance, have incomplete projects or contain projects that simply don't work, so it would be nice yes
Is there a case study that accompanies the book so we can see a complete project in action?

Thanks Kevin.
Hi Sam thanks for the reply and glad to hear the book will benefit me.

In answer to your question, being a stay at home dad has been very rewarding and also the hardest challenge I am ever likely to face in my career

Cheers Kevin.

Hi and good luck with the book.

Hi, having been a Stay At Home Dad for several years I am now looking to get back into Java programming and also polish my interview technique.

Is this book suitable for that or is it just aimed at people currently in employment.

Thanks Kevin.

Hi and good luck with the book.

Does the book come with a case study that shows testing and if so is this like a 'walking skeleton' approach where layers of testing are gradually added with functionality?

Thanks Kevin.

Good luck with the new book.

What does the 4th edition of the book offer that's new?

Thanks Kevin

Hi Joel and good luck with the book.

I noticed from looking at the web.xml in the 'look inside' part of the book that you're using Servlets 3.1.

Do you cover the differences between this version and Servlets 3.0 in the book and is the case study relevant to 3.1?

Thanks Kevin.

Hi Richard

Does the course cover a specific version of Java/Spring/Hibernate; is it Java5/Spring 2.5/Hibernate 3 or Java6 /Spring 3/Hibernate 4 based.

Are the software versions with regards to learning about Hibernate unimportant, sorry novice on these things

Was also wondering that now EE6 seems to be catching up with Spring is JPA integration the way forwards?

Thanks Kevin.
Thanks for the reply mark.

Understandable that it only incorporates 1.5 as even though MS have stopped supporting IE6, it's still out there along with IE7 and IE8.

So I suppose until these IE versions market share really drops off we're all kinda stuck with 1.5

Cheers Kevin
I have put the welcome in the appropriate place

Thanks Mario
Welcome Mark.

Best of luck with the book.
Hi Mark

Best of luck with the book.

Had a look through the 'take a look' snippets on Amazon and I certainly like the style

Couldn't seem to find which versions of JavaScript the book covers (it is early so may have missed it).

Is it just 1.5, or is 1.6 - 1.8.x covered as well.

Thanks Kevin.
Thanks for the reply Johanna.

Yes I have also noticed the market change over the years and totally agree with the points made.

Regards Kevin.
