“…a valuable learning experience all round” (Application Development Advisor, 1st September, 2004)
In this hands-on guide, Ill show you alternatives to EJB that can be used to create higher quality applications faster and at lower cost. Ill demonstrate how to leverage practical techniques and tools, including the popular open source Spring Framework and Hibernate. Ill guide you through productive solutions to core problems such as transaction management, persistence, remoting, and web tier design. We will examine how these alternatives affect testing, performance, and scalability, and discover how lightweight architectures can slash time and effort on many projects.
Ive been working with servlets, EJB, JSP™, and other J2EE technologies since their release. (As co-lead of Spring, Juergen also brings a wealth of expertise.) Im excited to share my experience with you, one-on-one.
