* Introduces you to some of the coolest open-source projects in the history of mankind.
* Demonstrates the test-driven-development to drive design (and even some tests).

    The code will appear online at the end of November.

    I bought your book. Absolutely love it, your ideas are fresh. I’m a struts developer and will be building your PetSoar site from your book to see what you’re doing.

    One problem. I’m using IntelliJ 3.0.5 and I applied what you did to configure Resin — Page 236. I’m getting a NoClassDefFoundError in my console — I know that I’m doing something wrong.

    I tried to find the book’s errata site or any info to fill in the blanks, but I’m getting too many answers and none are alike.

    Can you fill in the gaps? I don’t think I’m the only one dying on this.
