It’s nestled in a nice comfortable place between the old EMF book and one of the BIRT books. I don’t know what that scary AJAX book is doing there… don’t ask.
In terms of book quality, I’m amazed at the amount of content that was packed into the new edition. If anyone remembers the first edition of the EMF book… the book was so good that the modeling guys managed to generate half the book’s content using EMF’s CodeGen facilities 🙂
I’m happy to report that in the second edition, the authors opted more for a handcrafted approach. All that generated javadoc that was found in the first edition was replaced with world class content on validation in EMF, running EMF standalone, change recorders and many other fun EMF topics.
So what are you waiting for? Why not order the second edition of the EMF book and help fulfill Ed Merk’s impossible fantasy of retiring off of book proceeds 🙂
