The doFilter() method parameters are incorrect. The book shows only HttpServletRequest and HttpServletResponse, but it omits the third parameter FilterChain. Also, I think there should be a bit of explanation that if you want to continue the processing, call FilterChain.doFilter(), whereas if you want to terminate the chain, don't call it.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Change public void doFilter(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response) to public void doFilter(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response, FilterChain chain) Also add the following text at the end of 3rd para: The parameter `chain` is used to continue the processing through the chain by calling `FilterChain.doFilter()` method. If this method is not called then the filters after this filter in the chain are not called.

at the end of the fourth line, the word startAsync spills onto the next line after the startA...sync. Confusing, the whole word should be moved to the new line!

Note from the Author or Editor:
This recommended change would simplify reading the sentence and should be accommodated.

Note from the Author or Editor:

5th paragraph after "curl -i -X DELETE..."

the sencence for DELETE: The content method parameter will have the value New Order. I think this is a wrong copy from the explaination after "curl -i -X PUT ..." Delete request doesn't have parameter.

Note from the Author or Editor:

getOrder code in the errata

In the errata for this code fragment, I see what looks to be markup symbols ampersand poundsign 8232 (&#8232;) which are not visible on the book printed page. They also seem unrelated to the error. They will generate syntax errors when compiling the code as changed by the errata instructions.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Seems like a copy/paste error, updated the errata with the suggested code.

The list of events is mentioned, but nowhere in the book does it tell you that there is a JsonParser.Event enum containing these values.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Add the following text right before "The parser generates START_OBJECT and END_OBJECT..." All these types are defined in JsonParser.Event enum. This will be added as a new para.

JsonReader can also be created from Reader: But then the code shows instead that a JsonParser (i.e. not s JsonReader) can be created from Reader. But then the next line says: This code shows how to create a Parser from a StringReader. Very confusing Then, to make matters even more confusing, a few lines down it gives examples: JsonReader parser1 = factory.createReader(...) JsonReader parser2 = factory.createReader(...) Shouldn't this say JsonReader reader1 = factory.createReader(...) JsonReader reader2 = factory.createReader(...)

Note from the Author or Editor:
On page 116, change -- JsonReader can also be created from Reader: JsonParser parser = Json.createParser(new StringReader(...)); This code shows how to create a parser from a StringReader. You can create multiple parser instances using JsonReaderFactory: JsonReaderFactory factory = Json.createReaderFactory(null); JsonReader parser1 = factory.createReader(...); JsonReader parser2 = factory.createReader(...); -- to -- JsonReader can also be created from Reader: JsonReader reader = Json.createReader(new StringReader(...)); This code shows how to create a reader from a StringReader.

1st sentence under "Schedule Tasks"

Class ScheduledExecutorService does not include its package naming, better as: java.util.concurrent.ScheduledExecutorService In my opinion, section title should be "Scheduled Tasks" or "Scheduling Tasks".

Note from the Author or Editor:

Java code after bullet near top of the page

This bullet talks about "scheduleWithFixedDelay()", then the code is same as code from prior bullet, with method "scheduleAtFixedRate()". Also, paragraph after the code describes its behavior, and that seems to be describing the method in the code. Both the code and following description should match the method mentioned in the bullet.

Note from the Author or Editor:
Page 197 Change the code: ScheduledFuture<?> f = executor .scheduleAtFixedRate(new MyRunnableTask(5), 2, 3, TimeUnit.SECONDS); to ScheduledFuture<?> f = executor .scheduleWithFixedDelay(new MyRunnableTask(5), 2, 3, TimeUnit.SECONDS); No change needed in the paragraph.

1st sentence under "Managed Threads"

To be consistent with prior sections, would be best to mention the EE class "ManagedThreadFactory" parent: Java.util.concurrent.ThreadFactory

Note from the Author or Editor:
