"I was worried when I bought this book that they were attempting to cover too much, but I think they have done a remarkable job. This book really is the most readable introduction to J2EE I have found so far. It's small enough to carry about (unlike the massive Wrox tomes), and the API reference can help to keep it useful after you've absorbed the introductory material. It even has a basic SQL reference, which you don't get in some JDBC books!" --Frank Carver, Javaranch.com, Nov 2000

"Overall, I was surprised by how well rounded this book was. It really is a useful Java Enterprise reference and it deserves a place of honour on my desk." --Steve Cornish, Overload OL37, May 2000


"Java Enterprise in a Nutshell gives advanced Java developers a one-stop resource for programming with the disparate APIs required for today's enterprise development, including JDBC, RMI, servlets, and EJBsa Overall, this handy and readable guide to the latest in Java APIs can be truly invaluable to the developer bringing Java to the corporate enterprise for the first time." --Richard Dragan, amazon.com, March 2000

"It's hard not to like the Nutshell series from O'Reilly & Associates. It doesn't profess to do anything more than it tends to deliver: a clear, concise reference for a given domain.
Java Enterprise in a Nutshell is no different. It centers on the Enterprise elements delivered by the Java platform, of which there are an increasing number released every year...it's a good book to have readily available while you're actually programming. This book is a good investment for most Java programmers. O'Reilly's Nutshell books are modestly priced and well formulated, providing much additional value through the brief overviews they provide and exploring each topic clearly and concisely. (I would) recommend it to anyone working professionally with Java, especially in the enterprise." -- Claude Duguay, DevX.com, March 2000

"In depth coverage of various Java technologies that can be used in enterprise application development...a good balance of tutorial and reference material... in terms of Java technologies applicable to enterprise development, the book definitely delivers on its promise." --Bradley Mitchell, about.com Guide to Intranets, November 1999
