Pro Java™ EE Spring Patterns: Best Practices and Design Strategies Implementing Java™ EE Patterns with the Spring Framework

Book description

“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, coauthor of Design Patterns: Elements of Reusable Object–Oriented Software

Pro Java™ EE Spring Patterns focuses on enterprise patterns, best practices, design strategies, and proven solutions using key Java EE technologies including JavaServer Pages™, Servlets, Enterprise JavaBeans™, and Java Message Service APIs.

This Java EE patterns resource, catalog, and guide, with its patterns and numerous strategies, documents and promotes best practices for these technologies, implemented in a very pragmatic way using the Spring Framework and its counters. This title

  • Introduces Java EE application design and Spring framework fundamentals

  • Describes a catalog of patterns used across the three tiers of a typical Java EE application

  • Provides implementation details and analyses each pattern with benefits and concerns

  • Describes the application of these patterns in a practical application scenario

What you'll learn

  • Get an introduction to enterprise Java/Java EE application design patterns.

  • Simplify enterprise Java design using the popular Spring framework.

  • Examine presentation, business, web, and integration tier design patterns and best practices, including cross–cutting design patterns, aspect-oriented programming, etc.

  • See how the enhanced and up–to–date pattern catalog compares to core J2EE design blueprints.

  • Learn how to use comprehensive source code and configuration information.

  • Develop order management system requirements for the first in–depth enterprise application case study.

  • Design your order management system application using the final case study

Who this book is for

This book is for Java EE application architects, designers, and developers using or planning to use the Spring Framework.
