Expert Tips & Tricks for Java Enterprise Developers: O'Reilly Releases "Java Enterprise Best Practices"

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)
  • JDBC
  • Java Servlets
  • JavaServer pages (JSP) and Custom Tag Libraries
  • Remote Method Invocation (RMI)
  • XML
  • Java Management Extensions (JMX)
  • Internationalization
  • JavaMail
  • 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.
