Many of you are familiar with the official Java EE 6 Tutorial already. It is an invaluable resource for learning Java EE and it is free!

The good folks behind the Java EE 6 tutorial recently updated it. This update (version 6.0.8) is the last releases for Java EE 6 since the team will now be focusing full time on Java EE 7. The update is available now from the Java EE SDK Update Center.

Enhancements in the Java EE 6 Tutorial documentation include:

  • New information on securing web applications.
  • Revised material on using Contexts and Dependency Injection for Java (CDI).
  • Updated database schema diagrams for the JPA example applications.
  • Minor bug fixes and improvements.

Enhancements to the Java EE 6 Tutorial example applications include:

  • New features in the customer JAX-RS example.
  • Internationalization support in the Duke's Forest and Duke's Bookstore case-study example applications.
  • Minor bug fixes and improvements.

In addition, the second volume of the Java EE 6 Tutorial book has now been published. Titled The Java EE 6 Tutorial: Advanced Topics, it is now available in the paperback, Nook and Kindle formats. This book builds on the concepts introduced in the first volume, The Java EE 6 Tutorial: Basic Concepts. It introduces JMS and Interceptors, and documents advanced features of JSF, Servlets, JAX-RS, EJB, JPA, Bean Validation, CDI, and enterprise application security. The book culminates with three new case-study applications that illustrate the use of multiple Java EE 6 APIs.
