The master chef who authored the recipes offers valuable advice and plenty of examples of source code, unlike other recently published ADF books who seem to target more to project managers; rather avoid exposing the reader to code. The step by step instructions are easy to follow and implement in your own project, saving you time and effort. Furthermore, the text contains quite advanced techniques about refactoring, debugging, profiling, testing and optimizing, fine-tuning and monitoring an ADF application. Such topics are not included even in ADF books written by Oracle stuff. Moreover ignorance of them has been in the past the cause of hiring external consultants and spending all project contingency funds. Nevertheless, the text only mentions using business components as the model technology and not EJBs, neither facelets. Further details about the book one can find here.
