Customer Reviews

The book is well written and quite relevant examples.
Marcelo Rezende Módolo
This book was too focused on introducing tools and introducing the EE spec than applying understanding of that spec to address common challenges.
Josh Peters
Although not strictly JEE related, I enjoyed these recipes and can see how using them to write less code can have productivity increases.

Format: Paperback
Java EE 6 Cookbook for Securing, Tuning, and Extending Enterprise Applications is not your normal Java EE book. This recipes-oriented book does cover the broad topics of securing, tuning, and extending Java EE applications, but it is not designed as an introductory tutorial on general Java EE. Although there are some basics of Java EE discussed in the book (especially related to newer aspects of Java EE 6), the book's focus is on using various tools and frameworks to secure, tune, and extend Java EE applications. The author covers a wide spectrum of tools, including many I had not heard about. It has been helpful to get a taste for how some of these tools can be used with multiple different Java EE application servers for various utilitarian functions. The book is a good starting point for becoming aware of tools that are available and coming up with one's own ideas based on the examples provided. Being a recipes-oriented book, it does not need to be read cover-to-cover and select recipes can be teased out of it.

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

Format: Paperback
This book it is a good book to give the idea about JEE capabilities, but has some points that I did not like.

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?

Format: Paperback
This book is not a quick-start guide for beginners or a comprehensive manual for J2EE development. The book is just that it is supposed to be according to its title: recipes for securing, tuning, and extending Java EE 6 applications. And it proves its title by providing hands-on step-by-step instructions structured in 'Getting ready', 'How to do it...' and 'How it works...' sections as well as cross references in 'See also' sections.
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.

The Content
The book has 356 pages. If you take away all the preface and index stuff you end up with roughly 300 pages of content and examples. That is a good number.

Chapter 1 gives a high-level summary of the key changes in the Java EE 6 release. The focus is directed on how these new features will simplify your development, as well as how to improve your application performance.
Chapter 2 covers persistence. In this chapter, we will dive into the implementation of some of the new features of the JPA 2.0 specification, and look at implementing auditing for relational data stores. There are also several additional sections that describe some typical issues encountered, further tips, and extension points for starting your own JPA application, or extending an existing application.
Chapter 3 dives into Security. It looks at the Java EE built-in features as well as into the well-known Spring
Security framework, which is a widely accepted framework for more fine-grained security implementations.
Chapter 4 covers testing strategies: It includes testing-related recipes for testing various Java EE technologies, including JPA, EJB, JSF, and web services.
Chapter 5 finally is about extending your applications. It explore various ways to extend a Java EE environment with the use of additional dynamic languages as well as frameworks (Groovy, Scala, AspectJ).
Chapter 6 calls on mobile device integration. It looks into mobile application development frameworks, talks about native app considerations, testing and environments.
Chapter 7 covers deployment and configuration. It dives into issues and solutions to application configuration.
