The New JXTA Book
By mduigou on Oct 07, 2008
My copy of the recently published, Practical JXTA, arrived the other day. I have been thumbing through it during compiles. I haven't yet had time to read in detail more than the introduction, table of contents and the author bio. Looking at the table of contents it appears that the book hits exactly the points that have traditionally (or recently) caused developers confusion and pain as they are learning JXTA. It also really helps that the book is based upon the latest JXSE 2.5 release. Some of the code shown in older books no longer compiles properly with the latest releases (and some of it I'm pretty sure never compiled). JXTA has evolved and improved a lot over the years and without new editions the older JXTA books, or at least their code examples, have become obsolete. Learning JXTA with a new up-to-date book should be a lot easier. I'm looking forward to reading the entire book when I get the time.
