Summer Reading for Techies

Looking for some summer reading?

Sure, you could get engrossed in the latest bestseller, but how will that help you when your day at the beach, or on the patio, or just laying in an undersized plastic pool in your driveway is over? Just because you've slathered yourself with sunscreen is no reason not to beef up your technical knowledge while you're trying to keep cool.

With that in mind, here are three absolutely free excerpts from recent technical books

In this sample chapter from Advanced WebLogic Server Automation: Administration and Monitoring with WLST and JMX (Rampant TechPress), author Martin Heinzl starts with the minimal domain, extends it with components, and then shows "a comprehensive but flexible example of how to create a domain with a number of important features."
