Java Persistence with JPA 2.1, Outskirts Press, Denver, Colorado, 2013.
The goal of this book is to provide a concise and comprehensive coverage of Java Persistence API 2.1, which is part of Java EE 7 but can be used in Java SE as well. Concepts are illustrated through code examples for easy understanding. It may serve as an introductory text for Java developers who do not know anything about JPA, and a reference book for experienced JPA developers who may look up for concepts and code snippets while they develop complex JPA applications.
Java Persistence with JPA, Outskirts Press, Denver, Colorado, 2010.
Concise and complete coverage of Java Persistence API 2.0 with code examples, design patterns, and performance tuning tips. It is Java EE 6.0 compliant, but can be used in Java SE 5.0 and Java EE 5.0 or later. It is written for Java developers and architects to learn everything about JPA and use it as a reference book.
C++ and Object Oriented Numeric Computing for Scientists and Engineers, Springer-Verlag, New York, 2001 (paperback 2012).
Concise and complete coverage of ANSI/ISO C++, with special emphasis on object-oriented numeric computing through numerical algorithms and code examples
