This book is probably not for the Java EE beginner, but is instead more appropriate for someone with at least some degree of familiarity with Java EE who wants to extend their toolset related to Java EE application maintenance. The book provides specific recipes for specific functions that one might perform related to tuning, securing, and extending one's Java EE application, but its real value is in the generation of ideas for how these tools might be used in custom ways by the reader. In other words, the reader of ...Read more ›
It talks about profiling only with Intellij, but what about others IDEs? It could at least give some tips about it.
It talks a lot about android and IOs development but... The focus is not JEE? Why not to talk about WebServices with Mobile?
It talks about Linux Firewall... It is kind of strange to see it there. If is talking about Linux, where is the windows tips?
Also, Chapter 1 contains a high-level review of the latest Java EE 6 release to show the Big Picture of current J2EE landscape.
The book has certain advantages, such as:
1. Good coverage of modern and widely used J2EE specifications and technologies in Chapter 1;
2. Detailed practical description of a host of useful tools and packages;
3. Presence of numerous code fragments, class diagrams and screenshots provides a good illustration for the topics being discussed;
4. Step-by-step instructions with cross references;
5. Clear and precise style of writing.
In the same time, some instructions are too much tool-oriented, like those provided in Chapter 2 for profiling JPA applications (they cover the usage of YourKit only with IntelliJ IDE).
Probably, it would be more valuable to cover several most popular IDEs by describing a set of common instructions relevant for all the IDEs, complemented with corresponding references for each particular development environment.
Also, it would be useful to place the example source code folder references at the beginning of each chapter to make it easier to collect all the files necessary to run the chapter examples.
In general, I think that this book surely can be useful for J2EE developers and engineers who deal with testing, tuning, securing and extending their enterprise applications with dynamical languages.
I liked the way chapter one updates you not only with the new features added to the specification, but also with the outgoing ones. It explains why some JSRs are pruned from this release and then it starts with the new: Context Dependency Injection (CDI), EJB 3.1, JPA 2.0, JAX-RS 1.1, Servlets 3.0, JSF 2.0, etc. Again, this is just a small review as cited on the book "... This chapter is not a tutorial or primer on the various specifications..." But is good enough to see what's new in Java EE 6. This chapter contains no recipes.
Chapter two dives into the implementation of some of the new features of the JPA 2.0 spec. The recipes are written in the form "Getting ready - How to do it - How it works - There's more..." which allows you to start using the new features very fast and avoid pitfalls. There's a tutorial in this chapter that helps you in profiling and testing JPA Operations, really useful.
Chapter three is about security using the Java EE built-in features and it also explains how to use Spring Security for a more fine-grained security implementation. This chapter is all about security, I wasn't expecting recipes about configuring Linux firewall rules or obfuscating Java byte-code... well done!
So far, so good. I haven't finished the book, but looking at the table of contents I can see really interesting chapters ahead:
Chapter 4: Enterprise Testing Strategies. Inlcuding Testing JPA with DBUnit, Testing JAX-WS and JAX-RS with soupUI, among others.Read more ›
