Product Description

From the Back Cover

The Java EE 6 Tutorial: Basic Concepts, Fourth Edition, is a task-oriented, example-driven guide to developing enterprise applications for the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 6 (Java EE 6). Written by members of the Java EE 6 documentation team at Oracle, this book provides new and intermediate Java programmers with a deep understanding of the platform.

Starting with expert guidance on web tier technologies, including JavaServer Faces and Facelets, this book also covers building web services using JAX-WS and JAX-RS, developing business logic with Enterprise JavaBeans components, accessing databases using the Java Persistence API, securing web and enterprise applications, and using Contexts and Dependency Injection for the Java EE platform.

This edition contains extensive new material throughout, including detailed introductions to the latest APIs and platform features, and instructions for using the latest versions of GlassFish Server Open Source Edition and NetBeans IDE. Key platform features covered include


  • Convention over configuration, so developers need specify only those aspects of an application that vary from the convention
  • Annotated POJOs (Plain Old Java Objects) with optional XML configuration
  • Simplified but more flexible packaging
  • Lightweight Web Profile that is ideal for developing web applications

While I can understand some people wanting this in paperback form, I'm understandably annoyed that I bought this for my Kindle and have now discovered that you can get it for free in electronic form on the Oracle website.

Possibly not the best introduction to EE technology if you're brand new to it either, gets into details very early on while you're still trying to work out what it's all about, but you can judge for yourself can't you, because it's free.

edit: I would recommend going through the firstcup tutorial first, also available on the Oracle website, this book seems to make much more sense as a follow on from this.

Format: Paperback
The tutorial is a show of mastery of the treated topics from the writers, and indeed they are rigorous and exact. Unfortunately they don't make an effort to explain and teach. Or if they do, in my opinion they fail. Even with several years of experience programming, including Java SE, and the basics of HTML and CSS, after spending many hours on the tutorial, still I didn't really have an understanding of how to program with Java Server Faces. One example for all, the "explanation" of the JSF life cycle is quite impenetrable; I don't see what value it adds to just reading the Jave EE specs. After poring over this tutorial, I couldn't progress beyond copying, building and running an example with NetBeans. What a waste of time and, if you are evaluating a framework for web applications, what an encouragement to go with other options, like Ruby on Rails, for which there is excellent self-teaching material. I believe this "tutorial" can be of help to those already comfortable with Java EE 5 and who want to transition to v6. The book is available on-line for free as a PDF file from Oracle, so you can check for yourself.
