  1. It has been a long time since I immersed myself in EE Java. This book will give me the information I need in a format I can use. I know this because I am a long time reader of Peter’s work. If I don’t win this book, I’ll buy it anyway!

  11. JEE 7 packs a power punch of Project Coin and other features of Java 7 into the enterprise edition. I am hopeful of getting this master guide into JEE 7.
