Editorial Reviews Review

Let's pretend you're a developer or manager looking for the best ways to use Java technologies to solve a problem that requires you to link diverse programs, databases, people, and devices. Developing Java Enterprise Applications shows you what these technologies can do, enabling you to decide which ones to investigate more closely with experimentation and more specialized books.

Authors Stephen Asbury and Scott R. Weiner provide information on seven Java technologies: Java Database Connectivity (JDBC), Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI), JavaServer Pages (JSPs), Remote Method Invocation (RMI), Enterprise JavaBeans (EJBs), Java Messaging Service (JMS), and Java servlets. Throughout the book, the authors demonstrate an awareness of the latest Java developments, including aspects of the core packages that first appeared in Java 2.

The authors use prose to explain the technologies from an architectural point of view, detailing what each is good for and why you'd want to use it. They then provide illustrative programs that show how the technology works from a practical perspective. While these illustrations aren't enough to provide a full working knowledge of the Java Enterprise APIs, they are enough to get programmers oriented. After studying these examples, it's possible to ask intelligent questions about the various technologies and do effective research.

Despite the sequential approach to the APIs, Developing Java Enterprise Applications does a fair job of explaining how multiple enterprise technologies can be used together for maximum effect. Concluding chapters present some fairly elaborate applications--including a neat online store--that integrate elements from several of the covered packages. --David Wall --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


"...This book is a good starting point for someone wishing to understand some of the technologies available in the world of Java..." (CVu, June 2002)

From the Back Cover

Learn to develop enterprise applications using J2EE

Developing Java Enterprise Applications
Second Edition

Java programming experts Stephen Asbury and Scott Weiner are back! This new edition of their bestselling classic is updated to provide developers with the most thorough examination of J2EE, the latest version of the Java enterprise libraries. The book is formatted to introduce each technology across a number of chapters, complete with discussions on EJB, JSP, servlets, CORBA, RMI, XML, JavaMail, and brief introductions to JAAS and Connectors.

You'll also get two, real-world enterprise applications that demonstrate the skills needed to use the technologies described in the book.

You'll gain insight on such topics as:
* Enterprise JavaBeans-including the new Message driven-beans and container managed persistence (CMP)
* Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI)-information on naming and directory services, and how JNDI accesses them
* Programming servlets and JavaServer Pages-including creating custom tag libraries
* Java Messaging Service (JMS)-including how you use it to create applications with asynchronous and synchronous requirements
* When to use each technology and general guidelines for making your decisions

The CD-ROM includes over 75 complete programs with source code ranging from small, targeted examples to an online store using EJB and a message hospital for JMS. You'll also find a link to the authors' Web site, which contains up-to- the-minute information about updates to J2EE.
