Packt Publishing recently invited me to review Mick Knutson's (@mickknutson) book Java EE 6 Cookbook for Securing, Tuning, and Extending Enterprise Applications. I intend to provide a comprehensive review in a later post after I've had a chance to read the book, but an idea of what the book covers can be found in its Table of Contents.
In roughly 320 pages, this book appears to cover a wide gamut of topics and tools. It appears to cover several Java EE specifications with focus on what's new to Java EE 6 (such as EJB 3.1, JPA 2.0, Servlet 3.0, and JAX-RS 1.1). It also appears to cover numerous tools and non-Java languages. For example, it appears to cover use of Groovy, Scala, Jython, JMX, VisualVM, and several other (including commercial) tools and products.
I'm looking forward to reading Java EE 6 Cookbook for Securing, Tuning, and Extending Enterprise Applications and providing my thoughts and observations about the book in a future post.
