Product Description

From the Back Cover

Discover how to harness the full power of open source tools to build a free J2EE enterprise platform

The choice is yours . . . you can spend thousands of dollars on commercial enterprise platforms or you can take advantage of free, fast, and reliable open source alternatives. To make your decision even easier, this innovative book provides you with all the tools you need to seamlessly combine the most popular open source tools into a single, integrated enterprise platform that can be used for development and deployment of Enterprise Java applications. The authors introduce you to several open source Java projects, covering the basics of enterprise architectures and providing an overviewof open source developer tools.

They then explore the components that you can use to deliver Web–based applications and show you how to build and communicate with the enterprise infrastructure using such components as JDBC, JMS, and Enterprise JavaBeans™. After you’ve created the platform, the authors guide you through the process of moving an application from development to a production environment, so you’ll be up and running in no time!

With the help of comprehensive code examples, this book will show you how to:

  • Create your own Java enterprise platform
  • Select the right open source components for the platform
  • Utilize leading tools such as Tomcat, Struts, MySQL®, and JBoss
  • Ensure that all open source components work together
  • Integrate open source tools with commercial platforms to boost development speed and efficiency

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource 23 Oct 2003
By A. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
This book is not only good conceptually and instructionally, but it's also a great reference text. Aside from reading very well, the content presentation is straightforward and concise. Using this book the reader can quickly throw together everything needed for development of this nature. The book is worth it for the chapter on developer tools (chapter 4) alone. After sitting down and going through it once, I was finally able to get a complete development environment up and running under Linux. I had made a few attempts before but couldn't set up the environment correctly nor had any good choice for an IDE. Under Linux (my preferred development platform) I had always just used the command line compilation tools and text editors (like vi). Now the IDE is set up and I can test, debug, write, and deploy code easily and I'm considerably more productive.
The book is incredibly useful for experienced programmers and indispensable for anyone trying out Java and J2EE (particularly if you don't have access commercial development environment or testing platform... as a grad student I rely heavily on open source for development in all languages). It also explains how open source solutions can enhance production environments as well. And I've not found another reference that had everything I needed all in one place. This text is thoroughly recommended to anyone with an interest in J2EE or Open Source.

5.0 out of 5 stars Opensource - The hidden capabilities 25 Nov 2003
By Buyer E - Published on Amazon.com
I would definitely recommend this book to developers or enterprises that need to build applications with limited resources.
Having been the commercial app server developer for years (using Weblogic, JRun and Websphere), I was unaware of the capabilities of todays opensource app server. The capabilites and performance of opensource app servers like JBoss are well illusted in this book.
This book also introduces the reader to a variety of opensource API's. Most of these API's are supported by Jakarta or Sourceforge projects.
As it's name suggests, if you need opensource knowledge, start with this toolkit.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not very interesting. 5 April 2004
By Jesus M. Rodriguez - Published on Amazon.com
I tried to make myself read this book, but it didn't say much. Mainly a list of open source projects for a given topic. For example, templating engines, then proceeds to explain each one. This goes on for the entire book. Most of this information is available on the web for free. I wouldn't recommend this book.
