From the Back Cover
Java 2 Enterprise Edition is a combination of Java-related technologies including Java Server Pages, Servlets, and Enterprise Java Beans. Working together these “pieces” make Java a viable solution for enterprise-scale applications. "SE Using J2EE" starts with a section covering the core J2EE components and how they fit into the overall application architecture. The book then builds off this foundation to explore the practical applications of J2EE including incorporating XML into J2EE, creating wireless Web applications, network programming with J2EE, managing security and encryption, object programming with Serialization and Reflection, and programming Java applets in the enterprise. Later chapters discuss alternative approaches to solving problems in J2EE applications including debugging, decompiling and disassembly. The book finishes with a useful reference section discussing each of the core J2EE APIs.
About the Author
Mark Wutka has been programming since the Carter administration and considers programming a relaxing pastime. He managed to get a computer science degree while designing and developing networking software at Delta Air Lines. Although he has been known to delve into areas of system and application architecture, he isn't happy unless he's writing code-usually in Java. As a consultant for Wutka Consulting, Mark enjoys solving interesting technical problems and helping his coworkers explore new technologies. He has taught classes, written articles and books, and given lectures. His first book, Hacking Java, outsold Stephen King at the local technical bookstore. He's also known for having a warped sense of humor. Most recently, Mark wrote Special Edition Using Java Server Pages and Servlets. He plays a mean game of Scrabble, a lousy game of chess, and is the bane of every greenskeeper east of Atlanta. He can be reached via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
