There are 15 chapters in the text, 9 are almost pure J2EE development, standard Web apps/JMS/EJB/Web Service stuff. The remaining chapters go into Weblogic. I am still baffled as to why we don't discuss a domain until Chapter 12 p547.. I think that is really pretty important to a simple Web App developer looking to get started..
It is the ONLY book out there that is somewhat up to date, hence the 2 stars, but I still prefer the online docs at Oracle than this..
I am not clear who the intended audience is for this book. While well written and informative, I cannot think of anyone I know who would want to read this book because it covers too many subjects that are not necessarily going to be of interest to one person. I gave up after 150 pages.
After 150 pages I switched to Oracle WebLogic Server 11G Handbook by Sam Alapati. I am only 60 pages into the new book, but for learning web logic admin I think this other book is more focused.
If you want to learn Java EE, I used the free Oracle Tutorial on-line as well as buying a printed copy of the first volume (Java EE 6 Tutorial - Basic Concepts). Very good for a general Java EE overview.
Normally I do not mention other books in a review, but since this book covers Web Logic and Java I thought I would list other books on the subject.
Again, well written (at least the first 150 pages) but I am not really clear who was the intended audience. Perhaps with a new cover that explains what is in the book and who should read it, this book would be a 4 or 5 star book.
It expects you to program on the server and doesn't detail out some of the specifics well enough to know what you need to do implement other ways.
It has long winded explanations for trivial stuff (fillers) but skims over some critical details.
The chapters about web services assume that you read through 8 chapters on a mostly unrelated topic, instead of summarizing the details or referencing it earlier on, so you have to search through the book to find other bits of information.
As a result I spent 2 days trying to find out information, and failed to discover what I needed to make it work.
