“The only thing that interferes with my learning is my education.”

Albert Einstein

The Java EE 7 Tutorial is one of the lesser-known gem. It is an extensive tutorial that covers the Java EE platform and its different APIs. The nearly 1.000 pages of the Tutorial might looks a bit daunting for newcomers. But let’s be clear, one doesn’t have to go through the complete tutorial! The tutorial has been structured in a way to make it easy to learn specific aspects of the platform. And last but not least, the Tutorial also covers more advanced parts of the platform such as JCA for example. In short, the Java EE Tutorial is a great ressource to learn the Java EE platform at large but also learn more specific aspects of Java EE. The tutorial comes in mutliple flavours, a free online version, a free PDF version, a free Kindle version but also a 2 tomes based book edition.

The Tutorial also bundles many samples that demonstrate specific API but also a few sample applications that shows how to use and combine the different API’s to build a complete application. It should also be mentioned that that the Tutorial and its samples have been recently updated for the release of GlassFish 4.1.
