JBoss AS7 Book: Configuration, Deployment, and Administration

I have finally had a change to read the JBoss AS7 Book from PACKT. I have to admit, that this is very helpful book both for a developer and system administrator. It can be used both to grab an idea about JBoss AS 7 features and capabilities, as well as use it as a reference for JBoss AS7 configuration and management.

The book is divided into several chapter. The first ones deals with general things: installation and basic configuration. The following ones deal with configuration for Java EE. The remaining chapter discuss quite advanced topics, such as clustering, load-balancing and cloud computing.

What I especially in this book, that each chapter, or even each separate small part can be used separately without reading previous pages. The author also makes some useful comments and practical remarks. Additionally, the book contains many configuration examples.
