With just a day left in 2007, lets recap some of our favorite books this year. Having been the Editor for the Javalobby Book Review Team for the past 14 months, I have read and reviewed several technical books. People whom I meet often ask me what books are coming up and to name a few good books.
It was very hard for me to pick the top 5 from the vast majority of excellent books sitting in my shelf, and the ebooks on my laptop which I read.
I had to limit myself to 5. So, listed below are the top 5 books for Enterprise Java Development. Some of these books might not have received 5 stars on the rating scale, but they did make me more proficient in some aspects of software development.
1. Test Driven: Practical TDD and Acceptance TDD for Java Developers
2. Continuous Integration: Improving Software Quality and Reducing Risk
3. Ant in Action, Second Edition of Java Development with Ant
4. Java Persistence With Hibernate
5. Use Case Driven Object Modeling with UML: Theory and Practice
