An Excellent EJB 1.1 Book!


This book is excellent! It's clearly the best EJB book available. It includes total coverage of EJB 1.1, has lots of good design stuff, and an informative chapter on J2EE. I've also read the other EJB book (Ed Romans book), which someone recommended as more "real-world". Personally, I found the Monson-Haefel book to be much better and more practical since it covers EJB 1.1, while the Roman book covers the old 1.0 version.

A strong reference for sed and awk users


It is a quality and authoritiative book. I first learned awk and sed with Ellen Quigleys 'Unix Shells' and found this book to assist with the more complex issues not covered in her book. (Like working with unstructured, dirty data, and defining a template to pull relevant data from the flat file. I didn't use this as a 'start at the beginning and read all the way through it,' like the 'Mastering Regular Expressions' book. This is more of a reference book.
