Product Description

From the Back Cover

Two of the most significant technological development trends of the past few years have been the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE), a platform specifically geared to the needs of enterprise systems, and the Rational Unified Process (RUP), a comprehensive development methodology.

Building J2EE™ Applications with the Rational Unified Process is the first book to bring these two key development concepts together. Featuring a non-trivial sample application, the book demonstrates a customized subset of RUP that is relevant and essential to J2EE development. The text guides readers through the entire development process, from initial requirements gathering through system implementation, illuminating real-world intricacies, complications, tradeoffs, and decision making.

The book presents a review of the latest releases of J2EE and RUP, emphasizing the rationale behind their content. A developer roadmap helps readers navigate the development process successfully, and detailed discussions of each aspect of the process reveal practical strategies and techniques.

Also provided is detailed coverage of the key aspects behind any successful software development effort:

  • Requirements, including use-case modeling and the gathering of architecturally significant requirements
  • Analysis, including the transformation of requirements into a first-cut design model and a user-experience model
  • Design, including the refinement of a design model, introducing interfaces, framework components, design classes, and use-case realizations
  • Implementation, including the creation of source code and executable code based on the design, and the production of J2EE modules necessary for deployment
  • Architectural concerns, including the production of a Software Architecture Document, Deployment Model, and Data Model
  • The use of patterns, in particular J2EE design patterns
  • The use of UML to model J2EE technologies such as Enterprise JavaBeans™

Written for anyone working in J2EE or using RUP, this book is an comprehensive guide that reveals how J2EE and the Rational Unified Process come together to produce a powerful, efficient, and effective approach to enterprise application development.

Forewords were prepared by John Crupi, Distinguished Engineer at Sun Microsystems (and coauthor of Core J2EE Patterns, Prentice Hall, 2001), and Philippe Kruchten, Director of RUP Development at Rational Software (and author of The Rational Unified Process, Addison-Wesley, 2000).

By A Customer on 29 Sept. 2002
Format: Paperback
If you want one book that describes HOW to build J2EE applications successfully, then this is it. I've read a number of books that describe aspects of J2EE or UML and have always been left wanting. J2EE books describe technology, and UML books describe a standard notation for "drawing pictures". At last we now have a book (and an excellent book at that) that describes an actual PROCESS for building J2EE applications, and it doesn't disappoint.
After brief introductions to J2EE and the Rational Unified Process (RUP, which is pretty much a de-facto process standard for developing software) the reader is walked through the development of a fairly complex online auction application. I was pleased to see that the authors haven't taken the easy route of discussing a trivial application; the example used ensures that all of the "tricky" questions that would arise in a typical project are answered.
A chapter is dedicated to each of requirements, analysis, design and implementation. It was great to see the use of the Sun J2EE patterns throughout. I was also pleased to see some discussion of user-experience modeling, something that I've been struggling with in real life.
Even though there is a lot of information to absorb such as J2EE, RUP, UML and J2EE patterns, this isn't a lengthy book. At just over 250 pages I was amazed at how much useful information it contains in such a small amount of space. It's also interesting to see that this book has two forewords. The first is written by Philippe Kruchten, Director of RUP Development. The second is by John Crupi, one of the authors of Core J2EE Patterns. This tells me that the authors have done their homework, and it shows.

HASH(0x9be3bad4) out of 5 stars This is THE book for J2EE architects 30 Sept. 2003
By Sudipto K. Haldar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Get this right, this is NOT a 50-50 mix of J2EE development process and RUP, this is not for the ones doing BPR (Business Process Redesign) and book does not try to position itself as the ultimate book for RUP (I'm glad it doesn't).
This book let's you focus on only a small subset of RUP, a subset which is really relevant for developing the architecture of a J2EE application, it let's you use RUP as a tool (that's the whole point of RUP, it's a tool, not a goal in itself) to deliver your final deliverable, the software architecture document with other supporting documents.
If you are a J2EE Architect or a senior developer planning to make the move towards architect roles, this is the book for you, keep the 'J2EE Patterns' book (Deepak Alur, Dan Malks, John Crupi) by your side, and you're ready to go!
HASH(0x9be41924) out of 5 stars Probably the best book on the subject 8 Sept. 2005
By GA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There are very few books describing how to practically use RUP with enterprise-scale development. From experience, I found that RUP is a vast -- and overwhelming -- process, and it is necessary for architects and developers to customize their own RUP-based simplified process, or else a software project won't get anywhere using the full RUP approach.

The book is well written. My only complaint is that it errs, occasionally, on the side of academics and betrays its vocation of being a practical engineering guide.
HASH(0x9be414bc) out of 5 stars Best book for learning to use RUP with J2EE development 19 Feb. 2004
By Sam Courtney - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Well worth the money. It does a great job in simply describing how to follow RUP for J2EE dev. Does not go into depth, you will need more guidance, I use the RUP Plugin that is available for use with RUP that was created from the content in this book. It has been refined and much detailed has been added for real app dev use.
HASH(0x9be41d5c) out of 5 stars Excellent book for J2EE architects 8 Mar. 2005
By Julio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book fills perfectly all the gaps between UML and J2EE.

The book explain the RUP method focused on J2EE using a sample: An Online Auction Application. This way the book can be used as a "Best practice" of how to model a J2EE application using UML and RUP ( Rational Unified Process).
