Review of "Java EE 5 Development with NetBeans 6" - "I've been developing Netbeans plugin for Java EE development for the past eight years, and have knowledge of most part of the tools. When approached for help by Netbeans users, they were either guided  to sparse documents in the Netbeans Knowledge base or a blog was written for their benefit. I wished for a one stop book, which I could point Netbeans users to. I'm glad to see that David Heffelfinger has written a  book similar to what I wished for and published by Packt Publishing.

The book is written to help Java developers who want  to learn Java EE, as well as seasoned Java EE developers who would want to use an IDE for their development. This book is  not to teach you all the principles of Java EE, but to put all the Java EE related Netbeans tools into perspective so that a novice user can easily navigate through the maze of tools offered by Netbeans to develop a Java EE application from scratch. If you are new to Netbeans IDE and don't know where to start, then the first chapter is a must read. It has complete instructions for downloading, installing and starting the IDE for the first time and more - how to set various Java EE servers for deploying your Java EE application, creating data sources for your application, good tips for effective Java development, etc."
