Whose picture is on the cover of Head First Java? I was wondering why the choice of a pony-tailed girl? I think it might give the impression that it was sooo cool & easy, but is that what you wanted to communicate?

Hello,

after being out of Java programming for about 1 year, I'm curious what new changes there are. I'm looking for a good, solid intro. We used to use Deitel & Deitel. How do the two books compare?

Hi,
I wanted some advice on learning EJBs. The questions I have are: What are the best books on the topic, the best online tutorials, and what 'pre-requisites would you recommend'? We've been working in Pittburgh with Carl Trusiak (another Java Ranch guide) on a project to rewrite Yahoo!Groups in Java. It's called "jugsoft" and is opensourced on sourceforge. I was hoping if any developers out there might be able to give us some feedback on how to improve our development process? One of the problems we've been having is that it's taking so long and we all come from different skills areas. I guess the question I would like an answer to - is what are the best ways to manage opensource projects?
EJB's are only part of it. We're using all the other 'traditional' java technologies, too, in J2EE. A copy of an information posting is included below incase anyone is interested in knowing more.
Best,

I've edited out the JUG info and associated links. Please feel free to re-post that information in Blatant Advertising (or perhaps Java News) if that is your wish. -- Michael

Well, I'm always up for more training & information on app servers. I've mostly looked at Arsdigita (now owned by RedHat) & JBoss. How is WebSphere different? Also, where would you recommend beginning?

JavaRanch is giving away four copies of the software "WebSphere@Whiz - IBM WebSphere Certification (Test 488) Simulator".

And the best part... Pradeep Chopra, will be online to answer your questions!
Michael,
can you give me some simple case scenario of why or how you would use JXTA?

Could you give us a simplified scenario about how JXTA would be used? I need to visualize this.

Originally posted by Michael Ernest:
JXTA is supposed to be short for "JuXTApose," at least according to one Sun web page. The idea behind it: peer-to-peer computing. In this context, you can think of any JXTA-participating machine as a "peer" (i.e., sometimes requesting data, sometimes serving it).
