Who Should Read This Book?
This book is designed to be comprehensive with regard to BEA WebLogic Server. Even if you've never developed for WebLogic, you should be comfortable here. However, we assume that you have some previous Java and distributed application development experience. Although many J2EE technologies are explained in the context of WebLogic development, readers with no previous exposure to J2EE might benefit from a refresher, either online at http://java.sun.com/j2ee or from another book, such as Sams Teach Yourself J2EE in 21 Days.
