Hi Ken,
I need clarification about Chapter 2 and Chapter 8 admin app connection.
My previous download of June 2017, did not have the admin folder in Chapter 2.
Now, Manning source-code.zip Chapter 2 has admin folder. However, the text of Chapter 2 never mentions the code and content of admin folder.
Chapter 8 says something like: let's take the admin folder source code from Chapter 2 and implement different tests of the code. It looks like Chapter 8 code does take the Chapter 2 admin code, adds tests, and adds admin clients.
The questions I have are:
1. If Chapter 8 tests Chapter 2 code, then shouldn't it be description of the admin functionality
in Chapter 2. Again, until today, I was not even aware of admin folder existence in Chapter 2 source code?
2. If Chapter 8 and Chapter 2 are not connected (as it seems today) then shouldn't Chapter 8 contain more description of what we are testing?

Thanks for the clarification,
Vitaly

Vitaly,

Unfortunately the code has been updated but not the book content for some already existing chapters.

I'm hoping over the coming weeks this gets rectified.

Sorry for the confusion

Ken
