5-0 out of 5 stars JAVA is truly agile, thanks to Anil Hemrajani!
I just read this book, Agile Java Development with Spring, Hibernate and Eclipse, and I find it the best Java book ever written on earth...Never have I read anything as clear and industry-driven as your book..Thanks for the clear explanation!!

3-0 out of 5 stars A great book, too bad you need to read it twice.
I've read a lot of books, of which many are conceptual, academic or technical or just hands-on cookbooks. The problem with "Agile Java Development with..." is that it fits none of the above categories. It feels like an attempt to a hands-on experience kind of book (there's a lot of "Let's get to the action!" phrases and then fails to deliver and just discusses another subject), but Raj delivers mostly academic unstructured comments on every aspect of the subject matter. Don't get me wrong, the book has all the information you need to get started and learn tons more from references Raj gives you, but the problem is: there's no structure to his story telling. For example, In every chapter when he's discussing a subject, he tends to reference/compare to other subjects that haven't been covered yet; he even adds a "(as covered in Chapter X)". Seriously, you actually have to have read the book in order to understand many of the comparisons and references he makes.
4-0 out of 5 stars Good "Agile Java" command line to GUI tutorial using the Spring/Hibernate/Eclipse
Having spent most of my last couple of years using Eclipse based GUI to build Java web apps, I don't have much exposure to doing it at the command line.Mainly I have never used Ant because the GUI tools shelter me from it nicely.But this book did a very good job of starting at the command line and then eventually moving to using Eclipse.It covered a great deal of ground but well enough to whet your appetite to look further into a wide variety of technologies surrounding "Agile Java .." development.

I had done some little test applications utilizing Ajax and/or Atlas prior to reading this book, and I wanted this book to really give a solid base from which to move forward with.
5-0 out of 5 stars Best of Apress
i didnot think that i would like this book because for me apress is famous with their books having lacking style of examples. Normally you find yourself lost in the examples eventough the topic is covered very well.

4-0 out of 5 stars good but too many mistakes
This book is good overall but has too many errors.Simple proofreading would remove much of the confusion.I was asking myself at least a dozen different times, "did they really mean that?" and after looking at the errata it seems that the authors or editors or whoever is in charge of the final copy was lazy/understaffed.This seems to be a growing trend with technical books.Very disturbing considering this field is all about being precise.
5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful JavaBeans Book
'Enterprise JavaBeans 3.0' by Bill Burke is a wonderful book that will help all Java developers in their continued development and learning.Packed to the brim with over 700 pages of material, this is a bona fide smash hit!!!
5-0 out of 5 stars Essential information for the experienced Java professional
This book was released in May 2006, so all reviews earlier than that are talking about an earlier edition of this book, which is a completely different animal than this edition.

Editorial Review

PHP and MySQL go hand in hand; the former has been carefully adapted, through the efforts of the open-source community, to the latter. For situations that require dynamic content but don't merit the complexity and development time of Java or .NET enterprise applications, the PHP language and the MySQL database server fit the bill perfectly. That's the point Hugh Williams and David Lane make in Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointingly poor index
I'm new to PHP and MySQL, but a programmer for over 3 decades. I'm customizing some PHP code, using code examples for ideas. When I (a) see something I want to understand better or (b) want to find the PHP analog for basic functions, I naturally turn to the index to try to find the information I need. However, I found the index very disappointing because of what it doesn't have. For example, simple and basic keywords are not in the index: "comment", "logical operator", "and", "or", etc. I'm going to have order a different book as a PHP reference.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best starting point to php and mysql
I bought this book with the hope I could learn just enought to get me started with web application development. I only hadlittle programming experience at that time, I I didn't even have any experience with databases. Well. This book was the perfect introduction to web applications. From security to authentication, from php basics to multi-table join sql queries, this book got me into this world, and I appreciate it so much because I am working now in web development, thanks to what I learned from here.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Introduction Book & Reference
This book is an excellent introduction to PHP, MySQL, and the interaction of the two. It has a few chapters introducing PHP, then a few introducing MySQL, and then walks through the steps necessaryto build a functioning dynamic website. They also include an elaborate and detailed case study of a Winestore application the author's developed.

I first read this years ago when I was first learning HTML and had no developement experience.It was a great way to start off, easy reading and easy to look up information I needed.I still look things up when I need a quick refresher for a web page alteration.Not the book for someone looking for advanced knowledge. ...

I appreciate the book and it helps to understand how to create nice animations by using maths.
4-0 out of 5 stars People, it's called flash math CREATIVITY
The Flash Math books are great.But not if you want an O'Reilly cookbook of answers to your design problems.It's all about inspiration.Being able to look at something and say "wow, that's so beautiful" and either need to make it yourself just on principal, or see that maybe one day you can use the idea yourself on all those practical things you're so worried about. If you get all juiced up creatively from the things you see around you, this is a perfect book.It's 4 instead of 5 because it doesn't come with a CD.But you can go to the website for the book and see things in action.
5-0 out of 5 stars Some Assembly Required
The book is great.I find the negative reviews puzzling because this book is like a $30 kit for a working spaceship, but you have to weld the wings on yourself.Big deal.What's wanting in so many Flash books are examples of the astonishing things you can do with Flash.This book shows what can be done, then hands you the code on a platter.I guess if you're more the designer type and you want to do great stuff using the math functions in Flash, you, um, er -- need to learn some math.But don't complain that every author hasn't lined up to correct your particular brand of ignorance.Read a book. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good book for a start to learning Web Design
I found this book to be well written as a relative HTML novice and it was comprehensive enough (hence the title) in scope. I thought the projects and exercises were all well thought out. I especially appreciated that they gave a layout reference for all coding during the tutorials to make sure it was written and placed properly. They even gave a set of review-question answers keys at the end of each chapter which was useful for double checking your knowledge.
5-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good book
The tutorial sections were easy to follow, but the case problems were sometimes hard to understand.

3-0 out of 5 stars a mixed bag
I was rather dissapointed in this book. The first 7 chapters are either irrelevant to development (please put the historical crap on the web site) or redundant (the installation, overview and admin stuff ARE on the web site). The technical chapters (from 7 on) are good stuff. The one glaringly obvious (at least to me) part that is missing, is a decent deployment technique. I develop web sites and want to be able to move my site from a development environment to a production environment, without having to do it piecemeal. I have still not found a way to do this for DotNetNuke, and I've been digging around for quite a while looking for it. I'd hoped that this book would address this issue. It doesn't.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great place to start...
The text is very comprehensive with plenty of in-depth discussion of the DNN core, module architecture, etc. It will definitely get you going. What's missing is a section for hardcore module development, but perhaps that is a topic for a complete book in itself.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource
Although I dove into the technical chapters when I first received the book, the "Evolution of DNN" chapter was a facinating study in how a personal "project" evolves into a world class "product".Shaun Walker obviously put his soul into this chapter and it reads like a proud papa telling the tale of his famous son.

5-0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and easy to follow
I'm not a neophyte with CSS, but when I needed to turn an all-table-layout site into an all-CSS-layout site, I needed help. I turned to McFarland's book, which after a quick flip-through at the store seemed to hit exactly what I needed. Literally two pages of reading covered me, and I was off and running. But when I started reading the rest I was amazed at how much I didn't know about CSS. I really appreciate the real-world focus on browsers like IE5-6, and the inclusion of specific fixes for those CSS-unfriendly browsers. The fact that this book is SO recent - mid-2006 - means it's as up-to-date as a printed publication possible could be. While I'm sure the lengthy tutorials would be useful for someone progressively learning CSS, I like the book for it's logical organization, allowing me to flip to the bit I need, quickly see examples of what's going on (the ample screen shots are appropriate for a visual medium like CSS), and get back to work. I don't buy many computer books (for all that I've written several), but this one earns a permanent place not on my bookshelf, but right on my desk.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another excellent missing manual
This is another fine addition to the Missing Manual series. CSS is easier than it sounds and now I think I understand it. MacFarland makes it all clear. This whole series is excellent - books for those of us who still like our manuals on paper.

4-0 out of 5 stars Thorough, Straight-forward, Professional Approach to CSS
Overall, the book is a great read and recommended for anyone serious about designing professional websites.The chapters are broken up appropriately giving readers a gradual progression into the world of Cascading Style Sheets without too much detail at once.A major issue encountered in the book were the random passages scattered throughout where the author made recommendations that subsequent sections was boring and could be skipped.Personally I feel this puts the reader into a disgruntled state of mind.I liked how David put in the tutorials at the end of each chapter (except chapter 1) and these helped a lot clarify the material and how to put that material to use.I was disappointed though that the book did not present exercises for the reader to try out on their own at the end of each chapter.There were some exercises given by David but they were not consistent throughout the book (most chapters didn't have them).Finally I really enjoyed the overall pace of the book and found Appendix A with the entire CSS property list to be most helpful. ...

I have been a professional web developer for the past 8 years working for a boutique web development shop.While we have done a decent bit of classic ASP over the years, prior to 2006 we have not jumped aggressively on the .NET bandwagon.The advent of ASP.NET 2.0 and the growing din of client requests has changed that and we are now focusing on .NET development.

I've just about had it with Apress books such as this one.The text shows the code for the various examples, but often the code is just a snippet, or it's incomplete, or it has errors.And you don't find this out unless you download the book's code from Apress.com.If you're like me and like to work the examples out on your own as you read, the whole process becomes very aggravating.I think I'll switch back to books from O'Reilly.With O'Reilly books, the authors present a complete, working version of the code on the page. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The new way to develop J2EE enterprise applications.
The latest and greatest about designing and building J2EE based enterprise applications is all within this book. The Spring Framework is a perfect compliment to strong object oriented design principles and techniques that should be leveraged for any J2EE solution. This book discusses both the strengths and weaknesses to the old EJB framework and talks about why Spring Framework is a good alternative.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent intro and tutorial
This book covers most of the major topics in Spring. I used it to get started with Spring and to teach others. I like the comparisons they draw between Spring and J2EE. The book does a great job of introducing IoC an then moves into more complex/interesting topics.
2-0 out of 5 stars Sloppy by and large
Some chapters (the basic Spring) are ok (even good.) Many advanced topics are covered in a sloppy manner. Further the editing is generally bad. I must say that I have read a finely edited book by Manning, namely Hibernate In Action. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A top-notch title, but /please/ give us more testing recipes!
I am a novice Rails programmer, that much is certain. As a result, I'm quite happy to have Chad Fowler's "Rails Recipes" by my side. I have been part of the beta program for this book, so I've been reading it in parts for the past few months. It has been impressive, to say the least. As an author of my own "recipes" book, I am interested to see other authors' version of the recipe format, just in case I am able to incorporate something they do into a future book of my own. While Rails Recipes hasn't taught me much about writing a recipes book, it has taught me an awful lot of great things about Rails.
4-0 out of 5 stars A real page turner
Receipt books are a different breed. By their nature they are difficult to just sit down a read and as such I find them sort of tough to review. Some years back I got into baking bread. All my receipts came out of James Beard's "Beard on Bread". I love the book, but I must say there are many parts of the book I have never looked at and others with lots of flour between the pages. The nature of a receipt book is you need to make something, you look it up, make what you need, and put the book away. Not this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars worth reading.
Despite some unfortunate copyediting issues, this slim book has enough meat and asks enough important questions to make it worth reading. I like the way Morville meanders, and the book is valuable for the chapter on the socio-economic web alone. Just the same, somebody else might get as much out of a different chapter. Will keep this on my shelf and revisit in a couple years to see how things have turned out.

2-0 out of 5 stars Overhyped, overpadded, rapidly dating
Having seen the adulatory reviews of this book, I was looking forward to reading it. I have to say that I was pretty disappointed. "Rambling", "already dated" and "pseudo-intellectual" are three adjectives that come to mind.
5-0 out of 5 stars A good find
The first chapters take you on a tour from the beginning of language to Google. The last four chapters discuss topics including taxonomy, semantic web, and the emergent network culture. The book stresses user interface, which is as important as findability in the author's view point. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars A reference useful for a limited audience among those who already know XML basics
O'Reilly's XML IN A NUTSHELL is, like all entries in the Nutshell series, a desktop quick reference. It provides concise information about nearly all matters of XML, and is split into roughly four parts. The first introduces XML, the concept of tags, well-formedness, Unicode, DTD's and schemas, namespaces, and so forth. The second provides an overview for the many formats that are built upon XML, such as XHTML, XSL:FO, Docbook, etc., and technologies that plug-in into XML, namely XSLT, XPath, XLinks, XPointers, XInclude, and CSS. The fourth covers DOM and SAX, the APIs for dealing with XML. Finally, the book ends with a "Reference section" for various technologies covered earlier in the book, structured much like O'Reilly's pocket guides. I found the Reference section somewhat inconvenient, it causes flipping back and forth when each section could have been simply integrated with the previous discussion of the relevant technology earlier in the book. Furthermore, the book ends with a long series of Unicode character tables, which are of limited utility, as they cover only a portion of Unicode, which has already expanded in the time since, and these tables simply bloat the book a little.
3-0 out of 5 stars Strictly a Reference book only...
I took this book as it was a recommended book for one my courses.. i thought it would be same as other text books, where you actually LEARN THRU THE BOOK..
2-0 out of 5 stars Not an introductorytutorial
I chose this book after reading the glowing reviews here at Amazon, hoping to use it as an introductory tutorial to XML. I was disappointed!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, the one-stop shop for Java
This book really is the one-stop shop for Java language information. While many complain that the page count is very high and the book is slightly heavy, this is actually a *good* thing. I love the fact that all this info is in ONE book. One book to buy, one book to carry around, one book to reference, one book to bind them...hey wait a minute!
4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, AND door stop
This book is really useful to have on hand, but it is HUGE for a nutshell book. I realize that they need every page to document the code it is just makes it hard to keep this book on the desk.Over all I think the book could have used more examples on how to make the method calls rather than showing the methods and what they do.Over all if you need a book that documents most of the java libraries this is an excellent choice, but don't expect to pick up this book if you have no programming experience and learn how to call these methods.

5-0 out of 5 stars Indispensible
I use this Java book more than any other programming book I've ever had. That's probably because it's a reference book. Although all the reference material I could need is available online, I still like having the book on the desk next to me so I can look up a class or a method without playing around on the computer. I became a Sun Certified Java Programmer several years ago and although I've read many Java books before then and since then, the only book I would be hard pressed to do without is this one! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars i love GHH
i have read tonnes of books on this subject.starting from secrets of a super hacker by knightmare(published way back in 94, trust me dat was a great read n even 2day i find myself glued to da back as the first time i read it.now coming back 2 gray hat hacking.this is wat i would like 2 call the hacking reference book for the next generation.every one concerned about security should consider picking up this book.u might as well save some money n picking up more knowledge than any of the hacking exposed books in the market.no this book is not for button clicking script kiddies who play around wid trojans n claim to be hackers or web defacers(lamers).if u belong to da breed of script kiddies pick up this disgustin book by ankit fadia (oh by the way ive reviewed it).i wouuld liek to congradulate the authors for the outstanding work put into this book.howeever it would be great to see expanded materials on various topics and a little more detail in tool description.its not bad but it could still be better.so as i said before get dis book u wont regret it.so kiddies grow up keep those hacking exposed n ankit fadias books apart throw em in da firplace burn em do anythin .but go get dis one
4-0 out of 5 stars Covers more than the typical hacking book
"Gray Hat Hacking - The Ethical Hacker's Handbook" is not your normal hacking book.This book should not be lumped in with the "Hacking Exposed" series nor the likes of "Counter Hack".What differentiates Gray Hat Hacking (GHH) from other books is the amount of code the book offers.This book is not for script kiddies, but instead shows how to advance to the next level of hacking (and, more importantly, prevention) by devoting over 100 pages to developing programming skills for both Linux and Window exploits.I had not encountered a book that dedicated this much space to scripting.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great buy for every IT dept.
I bought this book from a store in D.C, and read it on my way back to India. I was impressed. Never found any book that deals with computer security and software vulnerabilities written so well. The reason I like this book is than others is because it does not only give you information that can help you in assessing your network security, but also gives you a basic introduction to the laws and legal technicalities. The contents of this book cover most of computer/network security related areas including technical implementation, planning, and defense. Therefore, it is not only for system engineers, but also for people managing IT departments.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great reference for webmasters or small business owners
If you rate a computer book on how well it succeeds at being difficult and obscure, you won't like this one.It skips the geek pretensions and just delivers useful information, in a way that is accessable to small business owners and webmasters.The screenshots may not appeal to everyone, but I found them incredibly useful because they allow me to quickly find the screen I'm working on.
3-0 out of 5 stars Mixed Bag of Content
In a nutshell, Google's Analytics service is a web traffic analyzer and marketing performance manager provided for free to anyone with a Google account, but especially geared to those who participate in their AdWords program.This book serves as an introduction and walkthrough guide to Google's Analytics service for those that do not already know about it.The authors have written this title in a in a "for dummies" format, primarily for small web site authors and bloggers that have not had experience in web traffic analysis software before.
5-0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful Find
Google Analytics is one of the best finds for those of us who find ourselves technically-challenged in a technically-heavy world.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good introduction
Although I have not plowed through this entire book yet, it is shaping up as one of the books I've been looking for to tie up all the different threads that now make up the task of creating a good website.I may never actually create my business website all on my own, but at least I will have familiarity with the various tools that are currently being used so I can intelligently discuss and understand what the professionals are recommending.One of the toughest parts of learning any new technology these days is the constant improvement and changes going on.It's impossible to guess what may become standard and what may be obsolete by the time I finish the book.Books like this at least give an average person like me a fighting chance to keep as current as possible without continuous formal education.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised
I am a design student, and have not yet learned web design, or how to build a website.
3-0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction Book
LEARNING WEB DESIGN is an excellent start to an understanding of how html works and what building websites is all about.Without getting too much into the specifics, and stopping before diving into more complicated items such as forms, and book builds a get over-all picture.If you're looking to become a professional, self-taught web designer, you probably want another guide. But if you are simply trying to build a personal web page and get started on a road to web design as a hobby, then this book is great.
