Separate examples for handler mappings

I've updated Chapter 7 example (ch7_HandlerMappings) to include separate Book Catalog portlets for ParameterHandlerMapping and PortletModeParameterHandlerMapping. Earlier, the examples were combined together to show handler mapping chain behavior.

The updated code is available in SVN ( and it'll be available for direct download (as a ZIP file) when the last MEAP version of Portlets in Action is released.

Portlets in Action book status

I started writing Portlets in Action sometime in Aug or Sep, 2009. When I started, I felt it'll take forever to complete the book as it kept growing with every feedback from reviewers and from the readers in Author Online forum. Y'day I addressed the review comments that I received from the copy-editor, and finally got the feeling that now Portlets in Action has reached the final stage of publishing. I guess the next step is typesetting, which'll not require much effort from my side.
It's strange that my other book 'Spring Roo Cookbook' is also nearing completion now. I'm not sure which one gets published first, but it seems like its going to be a close contest.
