The book received around 10 reviews and all of these reviews unanimously agree that the book content is very useful and the book is something that every Java EE developer or GlassFish administrator may like to have in the shelve.

Now that a chapter of the book, chapter 3, is available for free in the Packt website, I thought I can form a simple contest in my weblog by including some questions from that chapter and give away some copies of the book to 3 lucky winners who answered all 5 questions correctly.

We will give away 1 paper copy to someone in USA or Europe and two e-books to any lucky winner either in those two continent or not.

It wont take more than 2-3 minutes to answer the questions and you will get the chance to receive a copy of the book when I draw the winners on October 10th.

And now the fun part, below you can find the 5 question quiz which can bring you a copy of GlassFish security book. Just note that we will only use the first result for each email address and consequent entries will be ignored.
