Antonio’s book on Java EE 6 (and GlassFish v3)



Antonio Goncalves seems to have just shipped his work for his new Java EE 6 book. It sounds like the very first one to cover this topic which is quite a challenge given the specification will be final only in a few months. In the mean time, I wish Antonio the best for JavaOne sales! He’s certainly very well positioned to write such a book – at the heart of the matter, yet not a “vendor” but rather a exemplary Java community member.

GlassFish v3 as covered in this book (great to have GlassFish be part of the title!) is also a moving target since “Prelude” was released last year with a Java EE 5 web container and previews of EJB 3.1 and JSF 2.0 available via the update center. In the mean time, only promoted builds of the Java EE 6 work have been made available, so I hope Antonio will have a chance the refresh the content when Java EE 6 and GlassFish v3 ship later this year in a second edition of the book.
