From the Back Cover
"The Java landscape is littered with libraries, tools, and specifications. What's been lacking is the expertise to fuse them into solutions to real-world problems. These patterns are the intellectual mortar for J2EE software construction."
--John Vlissides, co-author of Design Patterns, the "Gang of Four" book
"The authors of Core J2EE Patterns have harvested a really useful set of patterns. They show how to apply these patterns and how to refactor your system to take advantage of them. It's just like having a team of experts sitting at your side."
--Grady Booch, Chief Scientist, Rational Software Corporation
"The authors do a great job describing useful patterns for application architectures. The section on refactoring is worth the price of the entire book!"
--Craig McClanahan, Struts Lead Architect and Specification Lead for JavaServer Faces
"Core J2EE Patterns is the gospel that should accompany every J2EE application server...Built upon the in-the-trenches expertise of its veteran architect authors, this volume unites the platform's many technologies and APIs in a way that application architects can use, and provides insightful answers to the whys, whens, and hows of the J2EE platform."
--Sean Neville, JRun Enterprise Architect, Macromedia
Developers often confuse learning the technology with learning to design with the technology. In this book, senior architects from the Sun Java Center share their cumulative design experience on Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) technology.
The primary focus of the book is on patterns, best practices, design strategies, and proven solutions using the key J2EE technologies including JavaServer Pages(TM) (JSP(TM)), Servlets, Enterprise JavaBeans(TM) (EJB(TM)), and Java(TM) Message Service (JMS) APIs. The J2EE Pattern Catalog with 21 patterns and numerous strategies is presented to document and promote best practices for these technologies.
Core J2EE Patterns, Second Edition offers the following:
- J2EE Pattern Catalog with 21 patterns--fully revised and newly documented patterns providing proven solutions for enterprise applications
- Design strategies for the presentation tier, business tier, and integration tier
- Coverage of servlets, JSP, EJB, JMS, and Web Services
- J2EE technology bad practices
- Refactorings to improve existing designs using patterns
- Fully illustrated with UML diagrams
- Extensive sample code for patterns, strategies, and refactorings

Top customer reviews
One of the things I like about the book, the fact they always fully clarify each pattern they introduce. They discuss the benefit, the rational, bad practices and what other patterns related to it.
I could talk all about how useful and handy this book was and still for any J2EE developer who works with patterns and the e-commerce architecture designs. In the end, I highly recommend this book.
Core J2EE Patterns is especially impressive in the thoroughness with which it covers the essential aspects of the J2EE architecture. The experience of the authors shines through the pages. And I fully agree with the reviewer who notes that "the strategies in this book will make your applications more robust, make you more productive, and make your code easier to understand and maintain." Very true, especially the noted point about making your code easier to understand and maintain!
Another useful book in the same category as Core J2EE Patterns (and well worth looking into) is Martin Fowler's book entitled "Patterns of Enterprise Application Architecture". The Fowler book paints the landscape of enterprise application architecture with broader strokes than does Core J2EE Patterns; that, of course, is to be expected, as implied by the titles of the two books.
In sum, if you're doing any sort of J2EE-based development, you owe it to yourself to get a copy of Core J2EE Patterns!
This book helps you to know what was used years ago, the origin of J2EE patterns and what motivated to created them.
The sections about bad practices can help you to recognize and prevent the same old errors.
