Explains transaction processing in theory and practice by highlighting the "under the hood" aspects of application servers and J2EE APIs.
Goes beyond J2EE, allowing Java developers to interoperate with other systems while tackling issues with web services and XML.
Authored by visible members of the Java community--heavily involved with the Java platform at Hewlett Packard.
Transaction processing is at the heart of modern enterprise systems. This book explains in depth transaction processing technology and how it can be leveraged in the Java platform. It provides a comprehensive explanation of the underlying concepts in transactions that are needed to understand and exploit the technology correctly. All technical information delivered in the book corresponds directly to the latest revision of Java. The authors cover how transactional aspects of all the major J2EE components work and the practical consequences of implementation choices. In addition, this text looks beyond Java at standards and implementations that provide for broad interoperability across heterogeneous application environments. Finally, the book provides a look at how emerging web services standards will address the next generation of reliable information systems.
"The authors have addressed all transactions related issues faced by java developers in a single book."

This is the definitive guide to leveraging transactions using state-of-the-art J2EE technologies. The authors offer clear, comprehensive explanations of underlying transaction concepts, and deep insights into J2EE and Java from a transactional perspective. They also introduce emerging standards and implementations that will enable broad interoperability across heterogeneous environments-including new Web services standards for building far more reliable systems. Coverage includes:
No other book offers developers, architects, and integrators as sophisticated an understanding of J2EE transactions-or more practical guidance on exploiting them in mission-critical applications.
