Lift Book Outsells All Other Web Frameworks at JavaOne

It's interesting to review the top sellers at the JavaOne bookstore. Seems to break down like this:

  • Two JavaFX books, at #1 and #2. Considering how few people I know who are interested in JavaFX, this feels like a stuffed ballot box to me, but, what the hell, I'll give it the benefit of the doubt. Maybe people were impressed with JavaFX at the conference.
  • Three scala books, at #5, #8, #9. Interesting that 'lift' was the only web framework whose book made the top ten, unless you want to count the Java EE book (I don't).
  • Four core Java and Java EE books at #3, #4, #6, #7. Not really shocking for a Java conference.
  • One solaris book.
