This book follows a tutorial-based approach starting with simple examples, which are enriched in the following chapters as new topics are introduced. Each chapter provides clear instructions and detailed screenshots, as the user approaches a new facet of the development environment. Most complex topics have been explained using practical examples, which will help you to master JBoss AS development. If you are a Java architect or developer who wants to get the most out of the latest release of the JBoss application server or a JBoss administrator who wants a clear and simple reference for JBoss services, this book is for you. You are not expected to have accumulated experience on the application server though you must know the basic concepts of Java EE.
