This is an outstanding book that explains the evolution of web - from inception to current state - in simple and understandable terms - while drawing reader into insights and inner workings of market forces at play (browser wars and monopolies leading to counter currents, what J2EE was trying to do at the same time - how developers were embracing open source technologies). To read and understand this book you do not need to study MBA or learn Porter's competitive analysis...

If you are looking for how to develop web/mobile applications using AJAX, HTML(5), JS, CSS(3), JSON, REST technologies and why these apps and approaches matter - this book is a compelling read

If you want to know when to use RESTful web services versus SOAP web services and want a trusted practitioners perspective (I know Roland and Kyle first hand, while other authors as fellow professionals) - I submit - read it

I love this book - in summary - since authors explain/share/offer advise so compellingly and unselfishly for everyone's good in this book based on their proven experiences (very substantial and equally compelling) - I submit this requires in every developer shelf (after a MUST READ, ofcourse).

Thanks.

The first thing that originally struck me about "Modern Web Development With the IBM Websphere" was the use of the word 'Modern' in the title. What Web Development will look like in four or five years hence may look very different from today's 2014 way of programming. Because in such a rapidly changing field as Web development, what is "modern" is constantly changing and updating.

This is illustrated by this excerpt from page 31 about What Changed in the Programming Model: "...some Java EE aspects have fallen out of favor over time. Although some features (such as Servlets) continue to be popular, others (such as Container Managed Persistence and XML deployment descriptors.) are being used less" So it won't take long before its contents may begin to seem outdated.

An example for such a caution is a modern reading of Bill Gates' attempt at predicting the technological future in his book called "The Road Ahead". His references and assessments of what at the time were emerging technologies become comical. Beyond that though there remains much information from Gates' insights that retain their utility even today.

Modern Web Development With IBM Websphere is at once informative and facinating. No small feat for a book about software programming. It shows developers one step at a time how to take advantage of IBM's infrastructure. Powerful cloud technology that IBM's WebSphere Application Server has made available for deploying. Using Java, REST, JSON and Web APIs are explained in detail.

All leading to the mastery of developing applications that will work in harmony with the new ideal of Mobile First that the Bring Your Own Device mentality of mobile computing has augered.

My first thought when I saw this book was “when did IBM Press books change from being blue to orange.”

To intro says this is part of a series of at least two books. One for the front end and one for the back end. This was the front end one. I got a little nervous when the characters Jeorge, Jack and Jill were introduced on page 20. I have trouble with books where I have to remember who is who over an extended period. Since they had similar names, I had already forgotten by page 22 which one Jack was. Luckily, it didn't matter and this wasn't a big part of the book.

There was a good split between concepts and products. Concepts included mobile first design and considering battery life. I like the design shows both mobile screen prototypes and REST API definitions (in a table.)

I'm glad there was an emphasis on MVC. I think it could have been introduced earlier. It was used on page 40, briefly introduced on page 55 and then formally describe don page 116.

Most of the book had a good mix of text to code. There were some parts where the was a lot of code though. From pages 192-208, there are 14 full pages of code. (not in a row, but that is a high ratio)

There were many screenshots of Eclipse. It was also nice to see both Chrome and Safari's dev tools since Safari works with an iOS emulator.

There was lots of information and this is a great book to get started with the IBM stack.

Gives good information on the IBM Websphere Web Server but is one of those books that you want to read when you have insomnia. In fact, I'm getting sleepy writing this review.

Great big picture book for beginners in the WAS/Worklight ecosystem. Nice for others with more experience wanting to fill in some gaps.
