This book contains 11 chapters.
The first chapter is targeted for novice Netbeans users, downloading and installing on different platforms. Experienced users can safely skip this section."NetBeans tips for effective development" is an useful section in this chapter; both for beginners as well as experienced Netbeans user.
Creating jsps, servlets, jspf are a breeze in Netbeans 7 using the GUI tools. The basics of this are covered in the second chapter. A good section on securing webapps, with different types of authentication supported for webapps is neatly covered.
Enhancing JSP Functionality with JSTL and Custom Tags chapter is an easy read. This chapter covers the basic of JSTL with sample examples. It also covers the CRUD operations using SQL JSTL tags (important for throwaway prototypes and quick development of DB apps).
Developing Web Applications using JavaServer Faces 2.0 chapter covers details on creating JSF projects primarily focussing on using Netbeans 7 IDE capabilities.
JSF concepts are covered only what is required from a Netbeans 7 usage point of view. Advanced concepts on JSF are not covered such as Lifecycle, phases etc. A couple of pages on this would have helped the reader to understand the big picture especially the beginners.
Then next chapter is devoted to the intro on PrimeFaces component library; which comes pre-bundled with Netbeans 7. Several features and examples are covered.
Interacting with Databases through the Java Persistence API is a very important chapter in the book.Read more ›
The book starts with taking an overview of NetBeans 7 showing how to download, install and configure the software. NetBeans 7 can be downloaded pre-configured to work with GlassFish and Java DB, but instructions are provided on how to install other applications servers (such as JBoss) and Databases (such as HSQL). Although other Java EE 6 application servers could be used throughout the book, the focus is on Java EE 6 itself rather than on the application server. I'd therefore recommend using GlassFish first and then re-reading if GlassFish isn't your preferred application server.
After introducing the reader to EE 6 development using NetBeans, there are several chapters that provide a learning trail for Web Development. First, JSPs are introduced and a simple application is developed using purely JSPs. The application is enhanced using servlets and JSTL implementing basic security along the way. For developers new to EE 6 development, these chapters provide a good overview of how Java web development used to be and give an appreciation of the underlying technologies used within web development.Read more ›
This book as articulated is aimed at three different types of developers:
1. Those who are Java Developers and wish to become proficient in J2EE 6 and NetBeans.
2. NetBeans users who want to leverage their IDE to develop J2EE 6 applications.
3. Those who are J2EE 6 developers who wish to learn the ins and outs of NetBeans.
This book definitely fulfills its aim in a very clear and concise manner. It is written the way developers constrained by time can quickly digest coding concepts and how to implement them in the NetBeans IDE. Illustrations are numerous and clear concise coding samples abound. Dave's writing style is personal and highly focus the way developers wish their code could be the first time written.
I would recommend this book without reservations if you fall in one of the three types of developers it is written for. So if you find your self on a project using NetBeans for the first time or moving to J2EE 6 this book is for you. If you flip flop like I do between different development environments and returning to Java this book is absolutely essential.
This book simply made it easy to create my first facelet, in a couple of minutes.
I recommend this book for beginners who want to have an overview of the different technologies available in Java EE, and who need help to decide which one to use and clear instructions to get started. If you choose Java Server Faces, I also recommend the book "Core JSF 3rd edition" (http://www.amazon.com/Core-JavaServer-Faces-3rd-Edition/dp/0137012896), which is a clear and accessible reference to go further on this topic.
