  1. Dear Mr. Arun Gupta,
    I saw your book Java EE 6(?) was most of the change of the version. Can you recommend a Java EE 7 book (for SE users but in EE beginner in pratice).
    Have nice holyday :)
    I’m sorry to break/steal your time,
    Gabor Gossmann
    PS:(Herbert Shildt: Java SE for Beginners was a great basic book something on it in Java EE 7)

  2. Dear Mr. Arun Gupta,
    after I looked the Contents:
    it’s great.
    But I have the “medusa” book and it was most of the changes for the new version.
    I don’t want to make from me, or from you a clow.
    But the big question is: Is it a great book? It great (you are in this, the best)!
    The question is:
    Is it about the old commands too (or only from the new)?
