Bill Burke's RESTful Java with Jax-RS is a book that comes to mind when talking about JAX-RS. It is has been published by O'Reilly in its Animal Menagerie a few years ago.
Bill is a long time JBoss contributor and is also the RedHat representative in theJAX-RS 2.0 Expert Group.
O'Reilly has just published a revised edition of the book to includes the new JAX-RS 2.0 features. RESTful Java with JAX-RS 2.0 has new chapters to cover the specification important additions such as the JAX-RS 2.0 Client API, the Asynchronous Client and Server APIs, Filters and Interceptors. In addition, the new edition also covers smaller JAX-RS 2.0 updates such as ParamConverters, UriBuilder extension, etc.

PacktPub released Java EE 6 with GlassFish 3 Application Server a few months after the first version in GlassFish 3 train was released.
This book is a practical guide to install and configure the GlassFish 3 Application Server and develop and deploy Java EE 6 applications on this server. Recently they released a sample chapter on how to configure JMS and message queues in GlassFish. The chapter provide complete snapshots from the web-based admin console and working sample code.
The Table of Contents shows that all major Java EE 6 APIs and the details of the GlassFish 3 server are covered followed by examples of its use. This book is a practical guide with a very user-friendly approach.Read about other books on Java EE and GlassFish here.

This book holds a step-by-step book documention all of the Java EE 6 features and APIs (including CDI) using the IDE with the best Java EE out-of-the-box experience : NetBeans 7. It uses GlassFish as the default container and PrimeFaces as a JSF component suite.
We've covered several Java EE and GlassFish books before and I can't help but think that given writing books never helped authors retire early, having so many good books on Java EE 6 says something about its success among developers.

It's been a while since we did the last JavaEE and GlassFish book review. A few months back, this O'Reilly post detailed the book market in 2010 asserting that "Java experienced the biggest gain in units" making it the #1 language (see graph).
In the current book industry climate it's remarkable to see a good number of new JavaEE and GlassFish books. Here are some recent ones we came across :
3rd edition of Antonio Goncalves' Java EE 5 book, updated to use GlassFish 3.0.1.
Another French book covering Java EE and GlassFish 3.1. More coverage here.
Very recent book from Adam Bien, available from Lulu.com.
Covers various JSF libraries and environment options including NetBeans/GlassFish.
Great coverage by David Heffelfinger of all Java EE technologies with GlassFish as the preferred runtime.
By Java Champion Yakov Fain. Covers Java overall with Java EE 6 section (using GlassFish).
Most of these have electronic editions. Wether you get it when buying the paper version is another story...
We're most likely missing some books here, so please feel free to comment and we'll complete the list.

Kenai is back after its data center move (congrats to David, Lea, et al!) so this seems a good moment to remind GlassFish users of Adam and Antonio's projects on Patterns and Samples. Both projects are based on best-selling books, both leveraging JavaEE 6 and using GlassFish.
The JavaEE SDK includes its own set of samples (glassfish-samples). If you know of other significant, good-quality, sets of samples for GlassFish, post them as comments with a way to reach you. More GlassFish books here.

Time to do an updated list of GlassFish books. I've added 16 new entries since the March Review; some are dedicated to the operation of GlassFish, some use GlassFish in all their examples, some only in most. I'm sure there are other worthy entries; add a comment if you want to submit names to the collage; I've left out books that only use GlassFish as one of the "common containers" (GlassFish, Apache Tomcat and JBoss).
You may also want to check the Amazon Listmania I created to help me track them.

It's been a while since the last GlassFish Podcast episode and even longer since the last interview, so here it goes - episode #36 an interview with Antonio Goncalves.
Antonio Goncalves has many hats and this discussion covers a lot of ground starting with his recently published Java EE 6 book with GlassFish v3. It also covers his favorite Java EE 6 feature, his role in the JCP as an individual contributor, as the Paris JUG leader, his take on Spring vs. Java EE 6 and some thoughts on JSR 299.

Adam's Java EE (5/6) book (Real World Java EE Patterns) is now available. The book uses GlassFish (v3) and NetBeans for its examples, which are all available online at Kenai. The book is an example of self-publishing (through Lulu) and you can buy it online in either electronic or paper form.
More details at Adam's announcement. This is the second book based on JavaEE 6 (due for release in late September); the previous one is Antonio's Beginning Java™ EE 6 Platform with GlassFish™ 3: From Novice to Professional.

I recently noticed several new books based on GlassFish Server, like Yuli's book on Java EE and DBs, Using MySQL and GlassFish and Antonio's book on Java EE 6 with GF v3. Looking a bit more I also found that David also has a new book on NetBeans 6 and Java EE 5 (w/ GF) and Adam has one on the Netbeans 6 RCP that also uses GlassFish in many places.
Below is a quick table of the books I know (in random order); please (continue to) send me omissions and I will update it.
