C Vu magazine, June 2004

This book provides a great reference for the average EJB developer. It provides recipes for most common tasks that an EJB developer would need.

Computing Reviews, November 2003

...Sullins and Whipple have written an amazingly pleasing book. I enjoyed both their writing style and the simplicity and clarity of the presentation. If you are managing servers, you will need to look at this exciting technology, and this book offers a great way to get into it. I am looking forward to using JMX for my next server project.

Computing Reviews, March 2003

...I am happy with the fact that the authors have included chapters on using XDoclet for EJB development and on unit testing EJBs with Cactus. The body of the book is, simply put, a compact reference for accomplishing recurring development tasks.
