3-0 out of 5 stars Pls come out with latest version (my SAP ERP or atleast 4.7)
I really appriciate the author for his effors, The book would have been much better, if it was in the format like SAP-SD by Glen Williams.
4-0 out of 5 stars Useful for people who want to know about ERP Project Mngmn.
This book is usefull for people without prior project management experience in ERP (and not only ERP) implementations. It is well organized and has a nice sequence of chapters. If someone already has experience in project management, then it is just a different opinion on the subject.

2-0 out of 5 stars Very high level view
This book restates in somewhat clearer terms what the standard SAP documentation will tell you.It does not address the underlying principles of Project Management.The reader expected a treatise on Project Management and how SAP supports the various philosophies, strategies, tactics and techniques, instead, the writer merely glosses over the project management aspects and writes a series of explanations of SAP functionality within the Project System module.A better title would have been "SAP R/3 Project System - The Basic Functions".For the reader that does not have access to SAP documentation (avaliable free from SAP), or is interested in reviewing the standard delivered functions of the Project System module, this book covers the basics... ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book
I didn't have a very good undersdtanding about internal of COM. This book gave me lot of information regarding COM servers and threading and is a great book i suggest for any VB programmer who wants to know more about how COM works. The presentation of this book is excellent!. Thanks Ted, for your wonderful work. 5-0 out of 5 stars An Informative Explanation of COM for the VB Programmer
I thought this book was great.I've working with VB for 5 years and developing COM components in VB for 2 years.Did you ever wonder what really goes on when you build COM components in VB?Do you want a clearunderstanding about how COM really works?If not, this book is not foryou.5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book on COM technology, a must for all COM develop
I had no idea about COM and this book helped me a lot to get me started. You should be familiar with object-oriented programming no matter C++, JAVA or Visual Basic. It explains how COM works and describes its threadingmodel. This book also contains few chapters on MTS environment showing howlife could be easier with MTS instead of writing complex code to deal withissues such as connection management, thread pooling, and transactionmonitoring.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Good overview of distributed java methods
Most books on distributed java cover only one aspect (eg. RMI) in a level of detail that is really booring and time consuming to follow.This book gives a good coverage of available distributed computing methods in java (eg. RMI, CORBA, Voyager, etc.).None of the methods are covered in great detail but they are covered well enough to understand them and to know what you need to search for information about if you do implement one of them.The real value of this book is that it provides a clear overview of what methods can be used in distributed java so that informed decisions can be made as to which one should be implemented in a project.The only downside I see to this book is that there are a number of gramatical mistakes.The mistakes don't make the book unreadable and can be overlooked because the author is European, and English probably was not his first language.This downside is relatively minor, and the author's English is overall very good.An editor should have been used to catch these mistakes.

1-0 out of 5 stars Oh no, not O'Reilly also!
Micro$oft is famous for its ability to push out new development technologies. The reason behind this planned obsolesence is obvious, every time they come out with something new people will have to open their wallets to "keep up."5-0 out of 5 stars Great COM/DCOM book, for experienced C++ programmers
This book is a great source of information if you are interested in learning a complex topic such as DCOM. Be aware that this book requires you to have strong knowledge of C++, if you want to understand the examples. Although this is a great book, I'm still looking for other alternatives that will clarify the concepts of COM/DCOM in depth.

This is an excellent book, detailing what can be accomplished. It is definitely not for those who have no understanding of databases. An excellent tool.

3-0 out of 5 stars Read this book...but then...run into a brick wall
Frankly this is a nice book for beginers as well as a ref. source forexperienced data warehouse experts. The book very briefly, avoiding all theboaring and unnecessary details, explains the process for building a datawarehouse.2-0 out of 5 stars Adequate at best . . . .
I was disappointed that the authors did nothing but gloss over the new data warehouse feature of Oracle 8i . Considering who the authors are (both high level Oracle employees) I was hoping for more in depth analysis. Thisbook cover just the basic of what Oracle 8i can really do. Little to noexamples make this book more of a theory book than on with practicaladvice. I would recommend getting a copy of Oracle 8i Data WarehousingGuide. It a pdf file that you need to get from an Oracle Employee. Itsharder to get but well worth the effort ! ! ! ! ... Read more

Having read several good (and some not so good) books on Delphi, I would have to say that this book has some of the best content that I have seen.It is not for the Delphi developer just starting out.It does provide good insight into several of the more difficult aspects of Delphi and Windows programming.Several of the sections (including Calvert's discussion of COM) proved to be very valuable.His writing style is very straight-forward and he gives many examples in the book to help reinforce the topics discussed.

I found this book very useful.Despite the general title, Hermann Kopetz is mainly concerned with time-triggered techniques.This approach is becoming increasing popular with developers of real-time systems because it has been found to result in very predictable system behavior and, hence, can help to improve system reliability.This book was one of the first to be published in this area.It provides a considerable amount of useful information. ...

Reviews (25)

4-0 out of 5 stars Good survey of pre-web services EAI
Linthicum has an easy-to-read writing style and explains each technology he covers at the introductory to moderate level of depth.The descriptions are ample for any manager and useful for technologists needing a concise reference to get the big picture of the technology they are beginning to work with.There are lots and lots of clear diagrams.You can learn a lot fast from this book, especially if you are new to EAI.I have quite a bit of integration experience yet I found many sections quite helpful (typically in areas where I had not already done a project).
2-0 out of 5 stars A book only for entry-level students
As an experienced EAI architect, I felt very disappointed at this book. The book aim either at high-level managers to give them an introduction of what EAI is or at students who don't know anything about EAI. It is full of lot of abstract concepts without any implementation plan or idea. Most of tech described are out of date.

This is a good book for someone who does not know anything about storage and wants to get a clue. But if you are an expert this is not the book for you. I found the book lacking in many areas. The book only establishes the boundaries of managing data storage.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very Good for Project Managers and Resellers
Toigo's grasp of the storage industry's current players and technology is strong and thoughtful. He walks up from techniques in managing disks to strategic initiatives by major vendors, which is not something many peoplecan do well enough to write it all down. Nice job.4-0 out of 5 stars better at overview than technical
This has good high level explanations of many data storage techniques and technologies, but lacks in the low level blood and guts.I was hoping to see a few more charts or formulas or tables.Then again, it does list where to find white papers that it refers to at the end of each chapter,which is a nice thing. ...

This book explains the subject matter well to the beginners. However, I was very disappointed in the way examples are handled. Actual code examples are very sparse. Most of the time, the author gives few lines of code and explains what you should do next. Secondly, I found the accompanying CDof little use. To begin with, the Source code could not run on PB 5.0. Itrequires an earlier version. All in all the book gives a good introductionto the subject, but is not hands on.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not all that great
I'll admit that I have not fully read the contents of this book.I started off by going through the Skill Assessment and chapter Review Questions in order to evaluate where my weak areas are.Based on my experience with these mini-tests, I'm not holding out hope for high quality in the rest of the book.Many of the questions are unclear on what they're asking, and I've run accross several that are flat out WRONG in their answers.The CD test is useless, as it merely recycles the chapter review questions, and includes the same errors (plus others--like having the correct answer by a multiple answer (i.e., correct answer is both A & E) but only allowing you to choose one).I've used Sybex books in the past for my MCSE, and always felt they were of good quality, but this one is a definite let down.

4-0 out of 5 stars Supplementary Book!
Use this book as a supplementary book in your exam prep.The Certification Bible is the daddy!

3-0 out of 5 stars Better, but still needs improving & coordination
Having bought the 1st edition by Govanus, I was unpleasantly surprised by its insufficient content and rambling commentary about the author's experiences.When I saw the bad reviews it got, I decided to try Sybex again and buy this 2nd edition by the Klingon sounding Hryhoruk.It was definitely better and worth the expense.BUT, after having passed all the chapter exams with scores of 95 or 100, I failed one of the two final exams on the included CD, which asked a significant number of questions that were NOT covered by the 2nd edition, but were covered on the 1st edition!It seems that Sybex decided to use/recycle questions from its 1st edition in the 2nd edition without coordinating or checking on their relevance.This can be very upsetting on the day before taking the real exam!You need to find at least one other source of study, since I found this 2nd edition Sybex book to be really lacking in the troubleshooting part of the exam, which I failed.Fortunately, my strengths in the other areas brought my overall exam score up to 81%, so I did get the Server+ certification.Since troubleshooting is essential in real life, Sybex has to get this part improved so that you don't suffer from the paper certification syndrome of good theoretical knowledge, but little practical application. ...
