Book Review: Java EE 7 Developer Handbook

Book cover from
http://www.packtpub.com
Java EE 7 is the latest version of the Java Enterprise platform. Lots of new features and three objectives: Developer productivity, HTML5 and Enterprise Demands.

In this post, I'll be reviewing the book "Java EE 7 Developer Handbook" written by Peter A. Pilgrim and published by PACKT. As many others Packt titles, the chapters are easy to read, they follow a tutorial approach and a summary at the end.

I have read over the 50% of the book and overall I have liked it. Let me tell you a little bit about the chapters:

Chapter one introduces you to the new features and if you are new to the Java EE you will learn the basic definitions and concepts that are used throughout the platform. A sample application using EJBs, Bean validation, JPA,  Websockets and JAX-RS is presented and source code is explained but not in detailed since there are other chapters related to these technologies.
