Re: Welcome
Thanks a lot for writing this book, we were thinking about writing this book ourselves, therefore I am very keen to see what you guys are going to write. The contents look very promising. Good luck with writing and keep those chapters coming smilie

Re: Welcome
I'm going to order the meap, both eBook and print; Will post any errata and, if possible, will try to contribute when/where I can (optimistic statement, as that is)... I have particular interest in build stuff, especially since I've been engaged in all things junit/j-mock/hamcrest as of late -- these have twists to the whole maven/pde environment (I prefer POJ projects and ANT, and the BUILDR effort has my attention; FWIW);

Re: Welcome
A "cudo's" statement... The paragraph that crosses pages 21 into 22 (section 2.2) -- The discussion about java and platform and how .NET came up with "Assemblies" and the last paragraph -- about how OSGi brings us Java programmer's (ok, I do c/C++ and C# too LOL) into the modular fold and "much, much more" ... I love this whole paragraph; It's great; I sure hope it doesn't get "water'd" down in the final release! Cudo's!!
