Vacation, contracts, annotations, papers etc.

Took a couple of days off this week, trying to use up what vacation I've got before the end of the year. It wasn't planned much in advance, so I didn't have any ideas of what to do. In the end I did some thinking about service contracts and how Java annotations could help developers define them within our ESB. I've also got yet more papers to review (these days each conference or workshop seems to bleed into one another and I'm finding it difficult to tell from the SOA/Web Services papers where one ends and one begins - which might not be a good thing for all of these workshops/conferences!) Plus I found time to write some more of the book that Thomas, Arnaud and I are doing with Thomas Erl (not sure if I've mentioned that before).

So not exactly a vacation but more relaxing than work!

What is the book called and when is it coming out ?

I hope it has the same class as Java Transaction Processing.

Did you like Java Transaction Processing? Jon, Greg and I are working on an update, so any comments on things that you liked/didn't like would be appreciated.
