Should be named 'Apache Java Cookbook'.

The content is a bit dated, the original book was focused on Jakarta Commons (now Apache Commons). I wrote it back when I was convinced that Apache was "The One True Way". Since then I think that it is too limiting to focus the book just on projects withing Apache, but I agree it is currently very biased.

What I want to do with this content (and I hope people will help), it create an open source book that captures more than just commons components.

Agreed, some of the content in this book is a bit dated. It needs a refresh. If anyone is interested in helping out, here's the source: http://github.com/tobrien/common-java-cookbook/tree/master

Hello, I wrote this years ago it was called the "Jakarta Commons Cookbook". Instead of writing a Second Edition behind closed doors, I've decided to open up the content and the source. I just opened up the source on GitHub about an hour ago, and I'm starting out with a Creative Commons BY-ND-NC 3.0 license. I asked Codehaus to create a mailing list and a JIRA project. If somoene has any ideas, if someone feels very strongly that it should be under a different license, let me know: >tobrien@discursive.com>

>Here's the post where I talk about opening up the source>

Seems it would be much easier to get outside contributions if you used a wiki.

While wikis have been used profitably to create encyclopedia, I'm not impressed with wikis that accompany most open source projects. There's something about ownership and personality that gets lost in a Wiki, and even the best Wikipedia pages have readability problems. In addition to that, if you look at the inline styling, I'd hate to have to edit that in a Wiki-friendly format that wasn't supported by the publishing pipeline.
