Seam in Action Bonus Chapters Published
November 24, 2008
I'm a bit late on delivering this news, but as of two weeks ago, the two bonus chapters from Seam in Action (chapter 14 and chapter 15) have been published on the Seam in Action website after being polished, typeset, distilled to PDF. The chapters have been available online as Word documents since the release of the book, but have since been improved quite significantly, so I encourage you to scan through them even if you have already done so.
Chapter 14 covers Seam's business process integration (jBPM), starting off with a very gentle introduction to business processes that will be sure to get you excited about trying out a business process in your application. Seam's integration with Spring is covered inside and out in chapter 15, giving you a plethora of ideas on how to leverage the two frameworks together.
The best part is, the chapters are free! That means there are now four free chapters available! (1, 7, 14, 15) And those are complete chapters, not excerpts of a chapter with vital pages missing. There are two reasons for this. First, I really want you to get the information you need to use Seam effectively. It's also because I want you to appreciate how in-depth I went with this book so that you are confident in your decision to go "all in" and purchase it (Manning.com, Amazon.com). And please, after you read the book, consider posting a review on Amazon to share with others what you thought of it.
