This month purchases:
Agile Java Development Using Spring, Hibernate, Eclipse and Other Open Source Tools (amazon.co.uk)
This book is yet to be released in the beginning of May. I am looking forward to reading it. The title says it all! 🙂 Actually I am quite curious because I don’t often see books covering several different technologies/platforms all together.
“This book covers the core technologies used to develop Java applications. It also touches upon other open source tools including Ant and JUnit, and it provides a complete guide from the technology and software development process perspective.”
Beginning J2EE 1.4: From Novice to Professional (amazon.co.uk)
I was trying to find a J2EE book for beginners and after looking at reviews this one seems to be the most appropriate. It provides a start in J2EE, how to use the API in the J2EE platform and it contains hand-on tutorials and working code examples.
“This book is aimed at programmers who have learned the basics of Java (…) and are now ready to learn how to use Java in the real world, with J2EE.”
