Java EE 6 Cookbook for Securing, Tuning, and Extending Enterprise Applications is not your normal Java EE book. This recipes-oriented book does cover the broad topics of securing, tuning, and extending Java EE applications, but it is not designed as an introductory tutorial on general Java EE. Although there are some basics of Java EE discussed in the book (especially related to newer aspects of Java EE 6), the book's focus is on using various tools and frameworks to secure, tune, and extend Java EE applications. The author covers a wide spectrum of tools, including many I had not heard about. It has been helpful to get a taste for how some of these tools can be used with multiple different Java EE application servers for various utilitarian functions. The book is a good starting point for becoming aware of tools that are available and coming up with one's own ideas based on the examples provided. Being a recipes-oriented book, it does not need to be read cover-to-cover and select recipes can be teased out of it.

This book is probably not for the Java EE beginner, but is instead more appropriate for someone with at least some degree of familiarity with Java EE who wants to extend their toolset related to Java EE application maintenance. The book provides specific recipes for specific functions that one might perform related to tuning, securing, and extending one's Java EE application, but its real value is in the generation of ideas for how these tools might be used in custom ways by the reader. In other words, the reader of

This book it is a good book to give the idea about JEE capabilities, but has some points that I did not like.

It talks about profiling only with Intellij, but what about others IDEs? It could at least give some tips about it.

It talks a lot about android and IOs development but... The focus is not JEE? Why not to talk about WebServices with Mobile?

It talks about Linux Firewall... It is kind of strange to see it there. If is talking about Linux, where is the windows tips?

I have to say that this book is not for begginers in the Java EE field, you need some Java EE background in order to better understand the recipes. It is aimed at Java developers and programmers who want to secure, tune and, extend their Java EE applications

I liked the way chapter one updates you not only with the new features added to the specification, but also with the outgoing ones. It explains why some JSRs are pruned from this release and then it starts with the new: Context Dependency Injection (CDI), EJB 3.1, JPA 2.0, JAX-RS 1.1, Servlets 3.0, JSF 2.0, etc. Again, this is just a small review as cited on the book "... This chapter is not a tutorial or primer on the various specifications..." But is good enough to see what's new in Java EE 6. This chapter contains no recipes.

Chapter two dives into the implementation of some of the new features of the JPA 2.0 spec. The recipes are written in the form "Getting ready - How to do it - How it works - There's more..." which allows you to start using the new features very fast and avoid pitfalls. There's a tutorial in this chapter that helps you in profiling and testing JPA Operations, really useful.

Chapter three is about security using the Java EE built-in features and it also explains how to use Spring Security for a more fine-grained security implementation. This chapter is all about security, I wasn't expecting recipes about configuring Linux firewall rules or obfuscating Java byte-code... well done!

So far, so good. I haven't finished the book, but looking at the table of contents I can see really interesting chapters ahead:

Chapter 4: Enterprise Testing Strategies. Inlcuding Testing JPA with DBUnit, Testing JAX-WS and JAX-RS with soupUI, among others.

Oracle, the owner of Java, continues to actively improve it. Despite initial fears by some when it purchased Sun, the originator and previous owner of Java. This timely book explains the enterprise version of Java 6. There is nothing here about changes to the syntax of the core language. That is Java 6 standard edition. Instead the book delves into a formidable list of packages and specifications that describe vital parts of java suitable for (primarily) web services.

One new feature is the explicit hailing of APIs that are scheduled for deletion. Well, actually Oracle has taken a very conservative approach. Any labelled as such might [and note - 'might'] be deleted in java ee 7. The idea is to give you developers plenty of advance notice. So that, for example, you might want to start redesigning your architecture now. Or ponder carefully if you really want to continue writing code that uses those APIs.

Like what APIs? Take JAV-RPC 1.1 for instance. In part the text explains that the moniker RPC was misleading. It is not all remote procedure calls, as the name might suggest. Instead, Oracle has shifted this to increasingly use web services. A far more loosely coupled approach.

Then take our 'friends' the Entity Beans. These are being dumped! So EJBs are now only Session Beans. Many programmers who have struggled with entity beans since 1998 will be pleased. They were often kludgy and implementations were routinely slow. Some of you, while celebrating the news, might wonder why it took Sun/Oracle so long to respond to numerous complaints.

While only the first chapter of the book talks about the above, you may want to very carefully go over this. While comparing to any legacy code you might have that impinges. Perhaps after you have dealt with this issue, you can proceed rhto the rest of the text.
