In terms of the book, the writing style is actually decent. However, the severe deficiencies of the book come from its lack of depth and inappropriate focus on SQL, XML, and the like. There was only a single chapter on EJBs and very little on servlets/JSPs. There was absolutely no depth on those two topics.
Don't waste your money - if you want to learn about EJBs, buy "Head First EJB." If you want to learn about the rest of J2EE, I would suggest you buy something else...
The author writes well, and clearly, but wrote for the wrong audience. It also appears as if some deadline pressures dramatically influenced the construction of this book. For example, several chapters are devoted to explaing JDBC in painstaking detail, right down to constructing SQL statements. These are topics that I would expect anyone picking up this book to already know. Later in the book, topics like EJB, RMI, or JMS received very few pages.
I should also point out that the book is roughly 550 to 600 pages -- pp. 700+ are appendices, and 100 to 150 pages of the text are "quick reference guides," which fall far short of API documentation. As mentioned elsewhere, the accuracy of the code samples is laughable. Errors are so frequent that I passed the irritated and disturbed stages early on, and quickly moved to amused. C'mon, when 50% of the already limited code samples have errors, you have to chuckle!
The good point about this book is that it provides an accurate birds-eye view of J2EE, and can be used by anyone to learn how the various puzzle pieces fit together. J2EE is vast, and the book can help you navigate to the specific subjects that you want to drill down into.
This book has lots of chapters covering many subjects but none of them goes deep enough to let you really learn what that thing means.
There are chapters about HTML, XML and SQL that I really think that are not needed in that kind of book and the chapters about JSP and EJB are so small and poor in content that I had to go through the J2EE 1.4 tutorial provided by Sun to get the point on these techs.
The most part of the book is waste on tables listing methods of classes, but it's just that: The author gives a table with a list of methods and a small sentence stating what it does. No code sample, no usage... If I was searching for list of classes and methods, the Sun documentation available online is more than good.
I have not yet seen a really good J2EE book, even because I haven't read so many, but the Sun's tutorial looks very good.
