Reviews about Professional BlackBerry (7):
Hate to say it because I think it's a well written book and WROX always makes good books, but the information is all over 5 years old now and most is irrelevant.

Let me expound on that a bit. I am a Lotus Admin, I have a few BES Servers. If this were 2005 this book would be spot on. It's now 2010, some 5 years later and the book is outdated. The book author contacted me explaining that my 1 star rating was; "A slap in the face.", to that I say I am sorry, but I purchased the book with the idea that it was punished by WROX, which is a fabulous company, and written by someone I have heard nothing but praise about only to find out it would pretty much useless to me at my current position.

The book is written well and the information is good, if you have a 2005/2004 version of BES you are dealing with.

I hope you enjoy the book. I have returned mine and hope that the Author and WROX are working on an update as I would purchase that and read it post hast!
Early Waffle
Very helpful book when I was supporting the BlackBerry devices. I pride myself of being knowledgeable in areas I am responsible for and this book provide the details I really wanted to understand about the product. Great read for technical analysts.
One of few Blackberry books available, "Professional Blackberry" has much of its content aimed at hosting BES servers and integrating handhelds while the other offerings concentrate on the heldhelds themselves and largely treat the server as a black box.

There is still a little time taken to cover features on the handheld such as developing Java applications and using the Plazmic Media Engine for enhanced content, but these are provided as the last two chapters. While they are fine as an introduction, you will need to look for other sources for developing your own content for the Blackberries.

There is a lot to know, and setting up any server is a complicated business, so I have to admit I was a little surprised by the size of the book. At around 300 pages with a third dedicated to appendices, it lacked the depth I was expecting in many areas. The coverage of the combinations of backend possibilities had plenty of useful information, but they were all mixed together and would be difficult to refer to if you were only interested in a single set up.

Overall this isn't a bad effort and a useful book for the task, but I'm hoping later versions will be fleshed out a little more.
This is NOT "BlackBerry For Dummies". As stated in the introduction, the target audience for this book are software developers and IT staff who are interested or involved in developing for the burgeoning handheld market. The authors claim that to "provide enough information in each chapter to allow all technically savvy readers to follow along and understand the concepts." They succeed admirably. To avoid a false sense of security in some readers, it might have been a good idea to provide a "what you should know before reading this chapter", but the reader has been fairly warned.

The book is divided into two parts, consisting of a total of 14 chapters and 6 appendices. Each chapter covers a separate aspect of the BlackBerry development and support environment. The first 5 chapters briefly but clearly cover the BlackBerry system architecture, installation, deployment and upgrade procedures. While these chapters are necessarily short and are obviously meant as supplements to the product documentation, the reader is left with the feeling that he has had a peek behind the scenes and has been given many valuable tips towards anticipating, resolving or avoiding potentially troublesome areas.

Chapters 6 through 8 comprise the remainder of Part I and cover monitoring, managing and in general enhancing the user experience. Chapter 7 covers much of the less obvious material needed to consistently set up new corporate users. Chapter 8 in particular covers disaster-recovery planning, an often overlooked activity. The advice in this section is simple and direct, but assumes that the reader is already very familiar with their Lotus Domino or Windows BES (BlackBerry Enterprise Server) environment.

Part II is aimed squarely at developers, and the area where the book really delivers. While much of the material in the rest of the book could presumably be obtained from RIM tech support or as part of proprietary training courses, this section dispels any sense of mystery regarding developing for this platform by providing variations of a sample (and very typical) custom application. These chapters give a good overview of MDS (Mobile Data Services), Web portals, and the BlackBerry Channel. Developers are walked through examples of using the handheld simulators, developing BlackBerry push channel and Java J2ME applications, managing cache content and of using the Plazmic Media Engine (PME) and the PME Content Developer's Kit (CDK).

The Plazmic Media Engine uses vector graphics rather than bitmaps for images and animation to reduce memory requirements and produce better quality graphics than one would otherwise expect on small-screen devices. In addition, the PME can be used to create audio content for a rich Web user experience.

This introduction to the PME covers all of the relevant content design considerations, such as dealing with the varying screen sizes, color depth, fonts, etc. The content created with Plazmic and deployed with the Composer or SVG Transcoding Utility (used to produce compressed distribution binaries) can be used across multiple mobile platforms. The sample code is available for downloading from the publisher.

The first 2 of 6 appendices provide a WML (Wireless Markup Language) and WMLScript reference. The remaining 4 are worth the price of the book to developers, as the development guides and coding tips (reprints from the in-house RIM BlackBerry Developer Journal) provide valuable help in avoiding the pitfalls of developing for the handheld environment. Combined with the sample code noted above, these provide an excellent quick-start guide to developing BlackBerry applications.
