Sebastopol, CA--Java developers typically go through four "stages" in
mastering Java. In the first stage, they learn the language itself. In
the second stage, they study the APIs. In the third stage, they become
proficient in the environment. It is in the fourth stage--"the expert
stage"--where things really get interesting. Java Enterprise Best
Practices by the O'Reilly Java Authors (US $34.95) is the tangible
compendium of experience that developers need to breeze through this
fourth and final stage of Java Enterprise mastery.
Until recently, Java developers in the fourth stage of mastery have had
to rely on the advice of a loosely knit community of fellow developers,
time-consuming online searches for examples or suggestions for the
immediate problem they faced, and, of course, tedious trial-and-error.
But since Java has grown to include a huge number of APIs, classes, and
methods, it's simply too large for even the most intrepid developer to
know it all. The need for a written compendium of J2EE Best Practices
has never been greater.
"Java Enterprise Best Practices" distills years of solid experience
from eleven experts in the J2EE environment into a practical,
to-the-point guide to J2EE. The book recognized the difference between
learning a set of Java Enterprise libraries and learning how to use
them both effectively and efficiently in distributed applications.
Helpful hints and tricks are offered on the following J2EE topics:
- Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB)
- Java Servlets
- JavaServer pages (JSP) and Custom Tag Libraries
- Remote Method Invocation (RMI)
- Java Management Extensions (JMX)
- Performance Tuning for Enterprise Applications
"Java Enterprise Best Practices" is a must-have book for all serious
Java Enterprise developers. Whether readers want to review the rules
for marshalling or unmarshalling RMI objects, or find advice for
handling database connection pools, they can draw from the knowledge in
this volume to make their Java Enterprise applications move from the
ordinary to the extraordinary.
