Of course I'll also read the remaining chapters about web services and support for a web application framework but those chapters which i've listed above are mainly those chapters which I'll need for the bachelor project and actually there are not many remaining chapters ;o)
After I every chapter I'll post a short summery and will explain how I can use this new knowledge for our bachelor project.
Stay tuned and happy NetBeanin' as Roumen likes to say :o)
