Author Gurkan Erdogduabout this book: There is a project in Apache Software Foundation (ASF) related with Java Enterprise Edition (EE) Application Server. Project name is Apache TomEE ( This cookbook is written for learning Apache TomEE internals by server administrators and Java EE developers. Administrators will learn how to configure TomEE for using it in a production environment. Developers will learn how to create web applications using the Java™ Platform, Enterprise Edition 6 (Java EE 6) technologies provided by TomEE runtime and to deploy these enterprise applications into TomEE.

• What inspired you to write this book?
Currently Apache TomEE attracts lots of companies and developers who develop code in Java EE technologies. Moreover, number of "Cloud Providers & Server Hosting" companies which sells TomEE deployment is increasing every day. You can look at and!/ links to get what I mean. In lots of conferences related with Java, TomEE there. Although TomEE is getting very strong on technical side, there is no TomEE related book on the market. Like any other open source project, its documentation is not well designed and lack of containing lots of tiny important details (Lack of configuration details, not ordered & written like a technical book etc.). This is the reason why I wrote Apache TomEE Cookbook.

• Who are the primary readers of your book?
Book is targeted for Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) programmers and application server administrators using Apache TomEE in test and/or production environment. It is an all level experience book. Even an experienced TomEE administrator can benefit from the book.

• How long did it take to write it?
Nearly 1 year.

• How did you come up with the title?
This book is written as a Cook Book. It provides collection of recipes how to configure and use TomEE application server easily even for the non-experienced users. Therefore, I want to name title as "Apache TomEE Cookbook".

• Why did you choose this cover?
I used my cover from Amazon Create Space and like this cover. Reading this book like a walking in the forrest :)

• What was the hardest part of writing your book?
Hardest part for me is related with writing English grammar.

• Did you do research for your book?
Yes, I get help from Apache TomEE and related components documentations.

• Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
Yes. I didn't know the some functionalities of the Apache TomEE server until I wrote this book. For example, TomEE provides "Embedded Server" for executing unit test of your application but this feature is not contained in online TomEE tutorial.

• What do you want to say to your readers?
I hope that this guide helps you for learning of TomEE secrets. Even if TomEE is an easy to use and powerful open source application server, documentation of the server is not well organized and complete. After reading this book, you will understand TomEE and its internal components. You can configure your own TomEE server easily after reading this book. This book also provides a very good information about other ASF Java EE Technologies including "Apache MyFaces, Apache OpenJPA, Apache OpenEJB, Apache BVAL" etc. You will understand how to configure these technologies within TomEE.
