This should be required reading for learning Java EE6. There is so much packed into this book, obviously written by somebody who knows.

I found the examples valuable though it may take a little time to get them running because there is so much that could go wrong in this environment. So it is not really a hello world tutorial type book; it is written for developers.

However it doesn't assume a previous knowledge which is great, but you'll have to read carefully, because it is is all in there, though perhaps not obviously where you want it to be. In addition it shows you so many other necessary topics like how to create database pools, and how to create databases from a command line.
