Editorial Reviews Review

When object-oriented programming met the World Wide Web, it seems like the most notable result was a profusion of seemingly incomprehensible acronyms. Objects on the Web aims to help you sort it all out, providing an overview of CORBA, ActiveX, Java, JDBC, and more. While it claims to offer solutions for "designing, building, and deploying" Web applications, Objects on the Web is more suitable as a broad overview of Internet technologies than as a detailed guide to implementing any particular technologies. The book contains little source code and its only detailed tutorials focus on VisualWave, NetDynamics, and Orbix. Experienced Internet programmers probably won't find the depth they're looking for in this book, though the less Web-savvy may find the collected coverage of a broad range of topics--from HTML to CGI to security--a valuable high-level look at key concepts.

Format: Paperback
If you know any programming, this book should be easy to follow. Knowledge of OOP helps out much though.
