Hello,
I bought this book in 2005 but due to a job switch I haven't had a chance to read it until now. I've read and succeeded in getting the examples to work in Tomcat 6.0 with NetBeans 6.0 for chapters 2, 3, 4 and 5. For the Struts chapter, I used the option of using Struts 1.2.9 that Netbeans 6.0 has. Chapter 6 contains a description of Tapestry and uses Tapestry 2, however Tapestry is already at versions 4 and 5, you cannot even download Tapestry 2, only Tapestry 3, and you need to modify the code extensively to make it work. I guess the same will be true for InternetBeansExpress, which may not exist any more. What frameworks do you recommend reading about in the book? Perhaps some should be left out and one should read about JSF and new stuff?
Thanks and regards,
Pau
