Product Description

From the Back Cover

The definitive guide to industrial-strength EJB 2.0 development.

  • A comprehensive guide to enterprise-class EJB 2.0 development
  • In-depth coverage of transactions, security, performance, and Web services
  • Features a full-scale, real-world case study

Applied Enterprise JavaBeans Technology takes you under the hood of EJB 2.0, offering unprecedented insight into how EJB really works-and shows you how to leverage its full power to build industrial-strength distributed applications. EJB expert Kevin Boone starts from first principles and progresses to state-of-the-art approaches for building Java applications that are distributed, transactional, and secure. Along the way, Boone reveals aspects of the EJB architecture that are normally hidden but offer even more power to developers who understand them.

Applied Enterprise JavaBeans Technology offers all this and more:

  • Demonstrates powerful techniques for maximizing distributed application security
  • Introduces high-performance resource pooling and optimization strategies
  • Helps developers choose and implement the best approach to distributed transaction processing
  • Presents in-depth coverage of integration with related technologies, including servlets, Web services, messaging, directories, and CORBA
  • Includes extensive cross-references to the official EJB 2.0 specifications

From EJB "first principles" to the state of the art

  • Emphasizes accuracy, depth, and comprehensiveness: never oversimplifies!
  • Focuses on mission-critical development techniques that other books ignore
  • Illuminates powerful capabilities typically left "transparent" to the programmer
  • Shows how to use EJB to implement comprehensive security policies
  • Contains in-depth coverage of automatically generated EJB proxies

5.0 out of 5 stars I wish more books were written this way. 20 Jun. 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
If there's one J2EE book to use as a starting point it's this one. Boone has many working examples with useful comments in the source code.
He even develops working examples of home-grown middleware to give a flavour of what J2EE is really trying to accomplish (while stripping away the complexities that accompany a mature middleware product).
The example JCA 1.0 resource adapter distinguishes this book from others which assume the software developer will buy resource adapters from a 3rd-party. At some point, a software developer will have to integrate with something somewhat proprietary, and being able to see the guts of a resource adapter allows one to make better decisions about how to approach such problems.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good if you want to understand EJB's 15 Sept. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book to help you understand ejb 2.0. What i like best about this book is that it not only tells you how to use ejb's, but above all it tries to help you understand how ejb's work.
All examples use the sun j2ee reference implementation. This book does not discuss in depth how to use the deployment descriptors, as it assumes you'll be using some ui to do this.
