I'm reading Rod Johnson's Expert One-on-one J2EE Development without EJB book published in June 2004, presumbly he started writing this book sometime in 2003.
I wonder someone can tell what's the technology progress since the book published - both the spring project and others, like EJB 3.0, hibernate, JSF, Structs, lightweight containers. This may help me understand whether all the assertions and suggestions in the book are still applicable, or some better solutions have been found. etc.
Thanks in advance,
