Absolute Rubbish
The author himself is one of the reviewers who gave this book 5 stars. That made me wonder if others who think highly of this book are somehow related to Mr. Tate. His friend? Family member? Colleague?

To me, this book is absolute rubbish. Claims big but delivers nothing. Don't believe me? Get the PDF version before you waste your money. Read the bookstore's refund policy because you'll need it.

Good for beginning developers
This book is well written but I was expected something more advanced. If you have been a real J2EE developer for at least a year, you would probably have run across some if not most of the problems already. You also would have worked around them using solutions from other Java books you have.

This is a good book for new developers. They should be able to recognize problems early on after reading this book.

Good java anti-patterns book
good sections on the ejb and web tier with common anti-patterns illustrated. however most materials are introductory and i was hoping for more advanced techniques and advice to writing good j2ee app. this is definitely a good first book to understanding how to write/architect j2ee app the right way.
