Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

Pro JSP has arrived!

Pro JSP, Third EditionI received my complimentary four copies of Pro JSP tonight - whooo hooo! It sure is cool having your name on the cover of a book. ;-)

Congrats to all the other authors that feel the same way.

Does it look good? I am yet to receive my copies :( Hopefully they will arrive soon!

It does look good - for 600+ pages, it actually looks pretty small. At first glance, it looks to be a quick read.

Fantastic! I am stunned to see how expensive it is! Still, I can't wait to get my copies!

Ditto Sam's comments on not receiving them yet - I think ours are coming via the european distributors in Germany. Shouldn't be too long now then... :-)

Congratulations, Matt (and the other authors). It's no small feat to write a book, especially given what you've gone through with yours. Get your publisher to send me a copy and I'll write you an Amazon review :))

Congrats Matt. I am looking forward to buying and reading this book. I am confident your section will be excellent! :)

Congratulations Matt... One question, I'd like to get a book about Turbine (I know, I know ;) ) published... How did you get the venture off the ground?

Cameron - to be honest, I just got lucky. Lance hooked me up with Wrox (he had written a book for them before). They asked me to write a couple chapters, and gave me a list of chapters to see which ones I'd be interested in. I chose Security and Struts - so basically, I owe everything (re: this book) to Lance. Thank Lance!

So, my copy is in the mail?

Posted by Lance on September 30, 2003 at 05:04 PM MDT #

Congrats Matt et al. You guys worked your asses of for this book. Thankfully Apress published it along with alot of the other Wrox titles. Enjoy the author's glow!

You definitely deserve a copy Lance - please send me your address offline and I'll send you a copy.

I'm really glad it finally got published. Congrats! I followed your blog while you were getting the chapters done. It'd be totally unfair if the book weren't published.

It's been a long journey since we first started writing Pro JSP, 3rd Edition but my copies have finally arrived.

[Trackback] Forgive me Father, for it has been almost a month since I last blogged. Today I received a copy of Pro JSP from Matt Raible - autographed even! Thanks Matt, for sharing with me. Reading the authors' notes, I was gratified to receive a "shout out...
