Writing a book about Java EE 5

A couple of days ago a friend sent me an email saying that I haven‘t blogged for few weeks now. The reason is that I‘m writing a book about Java EE 5 and it‘s taking me a lot of time (after work and in the week-ends). The chapters will roughtly be :

* Presentation of Java EE 5
* Presentation of the Architecture of the application to develop
* Java Persistent API
* Stateless EJB 3.0
* JNDI an remote access with swing client
* JSF 1.2 and JSP 2.1 (Unified EL)
* Stateful EJB
* JMS and MDB
* Web Services (with Jaxb 2)

It‘s a practical book, not a reference one, so there is only 30/40 pages per chapter with external references to go to. It‘s aimed at experienced java developpers who have had web development experience.

I am a JBoss/Hibernate user but unfortunately I had to leave these frameworks because not really Java EE 5 compliant (stil JSP 2 and JSF 1.1). I‘m using Glassfish with Toplink and Derby. I lost a bit of time with this switch but it‘s ok. I didn‘t know Glassfish before and I‘m quite impressed with what they‘ve done.

Ok, have to go and I will blog more about what I‘m doing… I should publish an article about Java EE 5.

PS : JSF is driving me mad
