JBoss at Work by Thomas Marrs and Scott Davis and a book I technically reviewed, is shipping. Having read all of it, I’d say it’s worth a look both for the technical content–the authors take the reader all the way through a standard J2EE application, pointing out all the JBoss specific configurations and gotchas–and for the slightly whimsical and easy to read style. Sometimes it was a be repetitive, but that’s not bad for a book aimed at getting folks without much experience up and running. Read the sample chapter on ear building and deployment and see if it fits with your needs.
