Book Review: JBoss AS 7 Configuration, Deployment, and Administration, by Francesco Marchioni
JBoss 7 marks a significant departure from previous versions of the application server and it seemed a good idea to read up on the configuration of a server prior to actually doing any work on it. There are a handful of editorial gremlins and flaky translations but for the most part this is quite well written and practical. Early chapters focus on the core server and services such as threading and data sources; this is followed by application deployment and configuration, then on to more advanced topics such as domain management and clustering. The chapter on application security feels a little late in the day, and might have benefited from expansion. The final chapter on JBoss in the cloud is a bit advertorial but it's worth knowing about. The JBoss documentation itself is often quite good but finding it is not always as easy as it should be; between that and this book I think most issues I'm likely to encounter should be covered.
