J2EE tutorial (Learn J2EE in 21 Days, Sam's)

Hello everyone,

I just bough a book to learn J2EE (Sam's Learn J2EE in 21 Days) from ebay.

This book is based on J2EE 1.3, i'm wondering if it's good to read this
book or if it would be better to get a book which is based on J2EE 1.4.

Could anyone tell me ?

Thank's

If you have a 1.3 book, that's probably the place to start.

I asked that because i thought i could have some important changement
since 1.3

But, i think that the differences are in the specification such as (EJB,
JSP, servlet). am i wrong ?

Or do i have to take care of some important changement.

The acronym J2EE refers to a set of specifications. So of course the
changes are in specifications.

Perhaps when you say that the "differences are in the specification" you
are thinking of a specific J2EE implementation?

In any case, you should be fine with the 1.3 tutorial to start out with,
unless there was a specific feature in 1.4 you wanted to explore. After
all, 1.4 contains 1.3 so it is a good starting base.

Thank's, i'm gonna read this book to get all basics of J2EE.
If think i'll get a new book after to have the latest specification such
as EJB 3.0 (which is however not yet released).

Thank's everyone.
