Product Description

From the Back Cover

Agile Java™ Development With Spring, Hibernate and Eclipse is a book about robust technologies and effective methods which help bring simplicity back into the world of enterprise Java development. The three key technologies covered in this book, the Spring Framework, Hibernate and Eclipse, help reduce the complexity of enterprise Java development significantly. Furthermore, these technologies enable plain old Java objects (POJOs) to be deployed in light-weight containers versus heavy-handed remote objects that require heavy EJB containers. This book also extensively covers technologies such as Ant, JUnit, JSP tag libraries and touches upon other areas such as such logging, GUI based debugging, monitoring using JMX, job scheduling, emailing, and more. Also, Extreme Programming (XP), Agile Model Driven Development (AMDD) and refactoring are methods that can expedite the software development projects by reducing the amount of up front requirements and design; hence these methods are embedded throughout the book but with just enough details and examples to not sidetrack the focus of this book. In addition, this book contains well separated, subjective material (opinion sidebars), comic illustrations, tips and tricks, all of which provide real-world and practical perspectives on relevant topics. Last but not least, this book demonstrates the complete lifecycle by building and following a sample application, chapter-by-chapter, starting from conceptualization to production using the technology and processes covered in this book. In summary, by using the technologies and methods covered in this book, the reader will be able to effectively develop enterprise-class Java applications, in an agile manner!

This book gives you the idea you will learn a lot from this single title. Well it doesn't. You have to look at this book as a quick introduction into how you could practice agile development, and it gives you a very brief introduction on the tools and frameworks.

Look at this book as an intro, with a very steep learning curve.

For beginners this book it surely is too hard .. if you did some Java/JEE development before in another context with other tools and/or frameworks and you want an idea how to work with the tools mentioned, you can try this book.

Format: Paperback
This book sysnopsis leads you to believe that this will give you an introduction on how to use Hibernate Spring and Eclipse for agile development. It doesn't do it well; it doesn't even give you a good introduction to any of the individual subjects. The "worked" example is so badly done that it's impossible to code it yourself. The author will start a section with the impression that you will incrementally build the example, but you can't as all of it is dependent on other parts being completed (these haven't at that point been covered and this will also be done very superficially).The section on Spring is really poor. You end up with very litle idea of how to use Spring, the author (throughout the book) just gives snapshots of portions of code and xml with no adequate explanation. It seems that the author has developed an application and only has described, very briefly, only the portions of the application, and only very briefly the bits of Spring and Hibernate he used to develop it.

On top of all that, there is a smugness in his writing that eventually becomes somewhat irritating.

If you want an introduction to any of the subjects this book purports to cover, save your money and look elsewhere.

An interesting book.

The author of this book was very ambitious as to the amount of understanding that they were trying to deliver. Dispensing with many of the page filling/book swelling instructions on installing the components, most of the chapters are a head first dive into practical examples from the accompanying book code examples illustrating each of the technologies.

This results in a experience that has a steep learning curve, for example I had to go away and check the online documentation for junit, spring and hibernate at various points to fully understand the examples.

Format: Paperback
I've read many books of late on Spring and Hibernate. This stands out as being an easy read. Nice style and well worked examples that cover a lot of areas around projects that are often missed. I would not necessarily recommend it for people totally unfamiliar with the subjects but it brings lots of areas together very well. As a beginner then Pro Spring is very good as is Pro Java Development with Spring.

Once again, for non novices this is excellent. Money well spent.

Format: Paperback
The reviews for this book were so varied that I decided to break the habit of a lifetime and puit in my own twopenny-worth!
On the whole, I come down on the side of those who rated it highly. The writing is clear and accessible and it does pretty much what it sets out to do, which is provide an overview of some exciting and complex technologies. It does not profess to be a comprehensive reference or a complete 'how-to'. Instead it uses a sample project to provide examples and insight into how these technologies work together, and as such it fills an important niche. Those wanting to pursue Spring, Hibernate and Eclipse further will no doubt want to buy further reference works, but this book will get them started and inform their subsequent approach.
In my view, money well spent!
