Book Description

23 Oct 2002 0764543857 978-0764543852 New edition
What is this book about? The results of using J2EE in practice are often disappointing: applications are often slow, unduly complex, and take too long to develop. Rod Johnson believes that the problem lies not in J2EE itself, but in that it is often used badly. Many J2EE publications advocate approaches that, while fine in theory, often fail in reality, or deliver no real business value. Expert One–on–One: J2EE Design and Development aims to demystify J2EE development. Using a practical focus, it shows how to use J2EE technologies to reduce, rather than increase, complexity. Rod draws on his experience of designing successful high–volume J2EE applications and salvaging failing projects, as well as intimate knowledge of the J2EE specifications, to offer a real–world, how–to guide on how you too can make J2EE work in practice. It will help you to solve common problems with J2EE and avoid the expensive mistakes often made in J2EE projects. It will guide you through the complexity of the J2EE services and APIs to enable you to build the simplest possible solution, on time and on budget. Rod takes a practical, pragmatic approach, questioning J2EE orthodoxy where it has failed to deliver results in practice and instead suggesting effective, proven approaches. What does this book cover? In this book, you will learn When to use a distributed architecture When and how to use EJB How to develop an efficient data access strategy How to design a clean and maintainable web interface How to design J2EE applications for performance Who is this book for? This book would be of value to most enterprise developers. Although some of the discussion (for example, on performance and scalability) would be most relevant to architects and lead developers, the practical focus would make it useful to anyone with some familiarity with J2EE. Because of the complete design–deployment coverage, a less advanced developer could work through the book along with a more introductory text, and successfully build and understand the sample application. This comprehensive coverage would also be useful to developers in smaller organisations, who might be called upon to fill several normally distinct roles. What is special about this book? Wondering what differentiates this book from others like it in the market? Take a look: It does not just discuss technology, but stress its practical application. The book is driven from the need to solve common tasks, rather than by the elements of J2EE. It discuss risks in J2EE development It takes the reader through the entire design, development and build process of a non–trivial application. This wouldn′t be compressed into one or two chapters, like the Java Pet Store, but would be a realistic example comparable to the complexity of applications readers would need to build. At each point in the design, alternative choices would be discussed. This would be important both where there′s a real problem with the obvious alternative, and where the obvious alternatives are perhaps equally valid. It emphasizes the use of OO design and design patterns in J2EE, without becoming a theoretical book

Product Description

From the Back Cover

The results of using J2EE in practice are often disappointing – applications are often slow, unduly complex, and take too long to develop. I believe that the problem lies not in J2EE itself, but in that it is often used badly. Many J2EE publications advocate approaches that, while fine in theory, often fail in reality, or deliver no real business value. In this book I offer a real–world, how–to guide so that you can make J2EE work in practice. I draw on my experience of designing successful high–volume J2EE applications and salvaging failing projects, as well as intimate knowledge of the J2EE specifications. I’ll help you to solve common problems with J2EE and avoid the expensive mistakes often made in J2EE projects. I will guide you through the complexity of the J2EE services and APIs to enable you to build the simplest possible solution, on time and on budget. I take a practical, pragmatic approach, questioning J2EE orthodoxy where it has failed to deliver results in practice and instead suggesting effective, proven approaches. What you will learn from this book When to use a distributed architecture When and how to use EJB How to develop an efficient data access strategy How to design a clean and maintainable web interface How to design J2EE applications for performance "I just wish this book had been around earlier when I was starting enterprise Java development. This book shows the benefits and pitfalls of J2EE and how best to avoid them." —Andrew J. Smith, Java Architect "Rod’s depth and breadth of experience is quite impressive! J2EE developers can avoid many of the hard lessons Rod learned by reading this book." – Todd Lauinger, Software Construction Fellow, Best Buy, Inc.

5.0 out of 5 stars A definite must-have 20 Jan 2003
Format:Paperback
Rod Johnson's book covers the world of J2EE best practices in an amazingly exhaustive, informative and pragmatic way. From coding standards, idioms, through a fair criticism of entity beans, unit testing, design decisions, persistence, caching, EJBs, model-2 presentation tier, views, validation techniques, to performance, the reader takes a trip to the wonderland of project development reality, constraints, risk and again, best practices. Each chapter of the book brings its share of added value. This is not a book, this is truly a knowledge base.
The tone is rather unpassionate, miles away from the usual J2EE orthodoxy, very to-the-point. Rod Johnson takes the debate away from pure technology (this is not a J2EE book à la Ed Roman) and back to deliverables, and puts the focus on real issues, from which the J2EE community has often drifted away with unrealistic problems like database or application server portability. Technologies, proprietary and open source are evaluated, compared and recommended. The MVC chapter notably is impressive in that respect.
The book is full of documented answers to questions that architects and designers certainly have come across in the past without being sure their answers were correct. One thing is certain, many companies specialised in writing non-public reports would sell this book chapter by chapter thousands of dollars. J2EE architects/designers that I know who read the book have reacted quite unanimously: it is fantastic! Definitely the only book you'll never throw away from your J2EE collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for anyone using J2EE 2 Feb 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Probably the best book I have ever read on this subject. The biggest disadvantage of using J2EE is the many different ways problems can be solved, and its best to get it right first time around before it leads to further complications. This book gives advice on which direction to turn and leads you to start asking questions on your current development. The only book I have ever felt compelled to read from cover to cover, so that any bad judgements in J2EE development can be avoided.

5.0 out of 5 stars Boosts your skills to new hights 18 Jun 2003
Format:Paperback
This is a great book. It helps to bring the techniques available in J2EE into a comprehensive overview and offers heuristics for maintainable programs that scale and perform well. I have immensely enjoyed reading it and feel enriched by it. I can recommend it to the J2EE programmer who wants to know how J2EE development should be done correctly.

4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent Book For all levels.. 23 Jan 2007
Format:Paperback
This book is great if you developing J2EE applications. It illustrates through the use of a sample application why you should use certain components and when you should use them. With this book you can learn to develop J2EE apps the right way. Also it serves as an excellent reference.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book on how to develop J2EE apps... 11 April 2006
By A Customer
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found the book interesting, it illustrates how and when you should use a particular technology. It also points how a j2EE app should be structured for effective use and implmentation. I agree it is slightly outdated, but nothing major that cannot be rectified with some research. All in all I highly reccommend reading this book atleast once, im keeping mine for reference and use it all the time.
