Java Power Tools is an Essential Java Resource!
Java Power Tools figures in Ted Neward's latest article on Essential Java Resources for junior and intermediate Java developers (and even more experienced ones). This article does a great job putting together a collection of the most useful web sites, weblogs, conferences, libraries, books and tools that every developer should know.
On the book front, I would also include "Continuous Integration: Improving Software Quality and Reducing Risk", by Paul Duvall, Steve Matyas and, Andrew Glover, a reference in this area by some very savvy dudes, and Test Driven: TDD and Acceptance TDD for Java Developers, by Lasse Koskela, a solid introduction on the subject.
I would recommend this article as essential reading for newer Java developers, who haven't lived through the shifting sands of the Java world over the last 14 years. It's even worth a look for more experienced developers - you never know what you might find. So check it out!
"Probably the best training course I've been on."..."Not just how to write Java code but the 'business end' - how to build, test, deploy, manage and monitor"..."One of the best and most useful courses I have attended. And they didn't even try to sell me anything!" - Now five days, with new and updated material! Check out the new 2009 season of the Java Power Tools Bootcamps.
