David Whitehurst (an AppFuse committer) has taken on the task of writing a book on AppFuse 2.0. I don't envy him, but it looks like he's got a lot of good ideas.
When I started looking at AppFuse version 2.0 source and how it's going to use Maven, I got excited. I got so excited I'm writing a book about it and SourceBeat is going to publish it. I talked with Matt Raible, got his blessing, and sent SourceBeat the proposal. They liked it!
Well, I guess the news is out. We're doing the "AppFuse Primer" and it's scheduled for release August 2007.
Now, it's time for you guys to flood me with comments so that you can turn my outline upside down and get all the things that you want to learn about in the book. C'mon, I know you want it. I do and I decided that I would write down everything I've been learning about it. Everyone is going to be quite pleased with AppFuse version 2.0. And, I hope that this book will compliment its release with a publication this summer after everyone has had a chance to play with it some on their own.
Here's a rough table of contents.
- Chapter 1 - Introducing AppFuse
- Chapter 2 - An AppFuse Quickstart
- Chapter 3 - Developing with Maven
- Chapter 4 - Using the Spring Framework
- Chapter 5 - Persistence with Hibernate
- Chapter 6 - The Service Framework
- Chapter 7 - The Web Tier
- Chapter 8 - AppFuse Security
- Chapter 9 - Production Deployment, Migration, and Maintenance
