I think you are missing the point of this article,
and probably, the book.


For $40 US, you don't have to sift through
the discussion groups, or read through config
files. You don't even have to RTFM. Of course,
if you are the type that likes to spend hours
on end reverse-engineering xml config files,
well by all means, stay away from books like
this.


Seems like a bargain to me, I'll be buying one.

    Yes, I have to agree. Though I'm on the Tomcat Users list and read it pretty regularly I still read and enjoyed the Wrox Tomcat book when it came out. I currently have this book out on Safari but have been too busy to look at it. But I will or I'll buy it instead. Maybe I'll do both.

    There's a tremendous convenience in having books at hand and there's nothing that makes you a better coder/techie/whatever because you don't waste your time with books. Seems like some sort of backwards tech machismo to me. And I see it all too frequently.

    I'm also happy to see someone make a little money from documenting this stuff. There are plenty of books that are a waste of everyone's money but O'Reilly books rarely (but sometimes) fit into that category.
