I thought I’d work through the book even though it’s been a long time since I developed anything and I haven’t a clue about the ‘open source environment’. A few comments for what they’re worth (only got through the first two chapters so far):
Biggest issue I have so far is setting up dev environment (though I don’t think there’s anything you can/should do about that) in Vista. Book says use JRE or JDK - Eclipse/Maven doesn’t seem to like JRE (lots of warning msgs, although everything so far eventually works). I had to set up environment variables as System before they’d work.
P29 says enter any Group ID - I think this gives problems for next projects, which seem to need same Group ID (though maybe I just need to run Eclipse as Admin)
P31 says navigate to http://localhost:8080/ - took me a while to figure out I needed logon.app there too.
p35 DDD Box belongs in the next page (I know you said not to worry about this but just in case)
Ch2 setup of carserv project failed but seemed to work when I used the same groupID as first proj
p41 path should read Window (not ‘Windows’)
p44 first time I came across template (nop) so took me a while to figure it out but I presume others will be more familiar with environment
p45 typo “framework will called them”
p50 typo in box “we were asked us all” (btw, I like boxes)
p51 refers to “nakedobjects-icons archetype” - the one I picked up had a different name
p53 I had to import org.nakedobjects.applib.annotation.* to make @Named and @DescribedAs annotations work.
I don’t know whether any of the above is of any use but it’s been fun so far - best of luck with the book.
