Review

"JBoss is the certified J2EE application server from JEMS (JBoss Enterprise Middleware System) and with JBoss: A Developer's Notebook you'll be able set up and manage your project in minutes. It takes a no-nonsense approach and is the practical guide to JBoss for developers. It's certainly the kind of book that you'll constantly have open on your desk, and to save time they've added in some coffee cup stains on the pages for you! Scribbled notes in the margin also add to the notebook theme, but they are actually useful asides to the main text, which makes it one of the most readable books on the subject. However, some sections might prove a bit lightweight for the coding hardcore." .NET, November 2005 "A daring format which works well, a style that lends to quick reading and progress, and an all-round enjoyable read. I look forward to other O'Reilly books in this series." - Mark Jones, news@UK, March 2006

Format: Paperback
J2EE development is often seen as highly complex, and setting up the J2EE server from various vendors is nearly as bad. A good alternative to get running quickly is JBoss, a complete open source J2EE server which is designed to cut through all the complexity and vendor add-ons. A quick guide to get it running and working with it is JBoss - A Developer's Notebook by Normal Richards and Sam Griffith, Jr. (O'Reilly).

Contents: Installing and Running JBoss; Deploying an Application on JBoss; Creating a Complete Application; Connecting to a Real Database; Applying Security; Logging; Configuring Persistence; Managing and Monitoring JBoss; Rolling Out JBoss; Index

The Developer's Notebook series is a quirky format using a gridlined page with scribbled font text in the margins. You'll even find the occasional "water ring" on a page where a sweaty glass was set down. They're also small and to the point. It's not a step-by-step comprehensive tutorial, nor does it attempt to explain every last iota of information on the subject. It's a series of subjects followed by paragraphs of "How Do I Do That?" and "What Just Happened?" write-ups. This leads to a high degree of practicality and hands-on material.

Richards and Griffith have created a book that will be immensely useful to people who have some J2EE background or have worked with other J2EE servers before. By following the material, the reader can get the essentials necessary to start playing with JBoss in a matter of a couple of hours rather than days. If this is your very first exposure to J2EE, you won't get a lot of handholding here. There is the assumption of a certain level of background information.

Format: Paperback
This book takes you on a run through JBoss. Running at lightning speed through installation, building your first application, doing some simple persistence stuff through EJB (if there is simple EJB persistence), and then into monitoring, logging and performance work. Sounds like a lot, right? It's certainly is. Especially in just over 130 pages. Yes, read that again, 130 pages. So this book is super light on exposition. Expect to be taken on a lightning ride. And if that works for you. If that's not for you. If, for example, JBoss is your first Java environment, then I would look elsewhere.

Format: Paperback
The book is a solid guide for getting started with JBoss. However, I would recommend this book to those who are looking to get started with J2EE development.

Obviously, you can't discuss JBoss without J2EE. The authors take you through a sample application from start to finish. This includes a wonderful overview of J2EE.

After this book, you should be able to delve into more complex topics related to J2EE and other application servers. I really wished this book was around before I started hacking J2EE on WebLogic, I would have chosen JBoss to begin my learning.

Format: Paperback
I love the format of these notebooks. Quick and good overview of what you need to know about several topics.

On to the specifics of this book. You get a great outline of what you can do with JBoss including some good introductory info on Java EE in general. Some will find the lack of detail irritating but its great for a quick overview of how the stuff is done 'in the real world'. For example in Chapter 3 aobut creating a 'real application' the topic of XDoclet is discussed but not in great detail (Norman Richards has a huge 350+ page book on XDoclet) leaving the (sometimes ardious) task of getting XDoclet working with ant as an exercise to the reader.

The authors do a great job of writing in an informal conversational way without being campy.

Specific Content:

1) Installing JBoss - everything you want to know about getting JBoss up and running. Any deficencies here are made up for in Chapter 9 on rolling out jboss.

2) Deploying Apps - the stuff you need to know about how to deploy, talks about auto-deploy and how to do exploded deployments.

3) Creating the complete app - I liked this chapter but I susspect that newbies will find the XDoclet stuff confusing. XDoclet is great and works like a champ but many people will wonder what is going on if they don't have previous XDoclet expierence.

4) Connecting to a real db - good stuff, esp liked the bit on monitoring. Lots of folks new to Java EE don't get that whole monitoring thing and this book talks about it a lot (in most chapters).

5) Secutiry - all you need to know to get started with secutring in JBoss, using LDAP & hashed passwords are covered which a lot of preliminary discussions seem to leave out.

Format: Paperback
Enterprise Java can be a mysterious world, and navigating the configuration files of JBoss can be daunting at first. This book gets you going with an in-depth example and helpful notes.
(...)It is no surprise that JBoss: A Developer's Notebook was a top seller at JavaOne 2005. I look forward to other titles in the Developer's Notebook Series.
