Java Power Tools book - last call for contributors

Posted by johnsmart on June 20, 2007 at 3:21 PM PDT

There's still time to be part of Java Power Tools!

"Java Power Tools" is a new book that I'm currently working on for publication by O'Reilly. It is basically about software tools and techniques that can contribute to improving the SDLC (Software Development Lifecyle). This includes build tools such as Maven and Ant, CI tools, code quality tools, testing tools, collaborative tools, source version control, and more!

Java Power Tools is a collaborative book, where other authors can (and are encouraged to!) contribute material on specific subjects. It is currently scheduled for release in late 2007 to early 2008. I'd love to get some feedback on the topics, including suggestions on other material I haven't mentioned but should.

For more details, check out the "official unofficial" website, which can be found at There is a detailed chapter outline here, where you can add comments and suggestions, and even propose your own favorite tools or techniques!
