Product Description

From the Back Cover

  • Master the ins and outs of IBM’s J2EE application server
  • Develop applications using servlets, JSP, EJB, XML/XSLT, and Web services
  • Discover the secrets of WebSphere administration and management

If WebSphere can do it, you can do it too . . .

IBM WebSphere Application Server gives you all the tools you need to develop, deploy, and manage Java 2 enterprise applications and Web services. Written by three IBM–certified WebSphere experts, this comprehensive guide shows you how to put WAS to work, whether you’re a Java developer or a systems administrator. After an incisive overview of planning and installation, the authors provide 14 detailed chapters on WAS development tools and techniques, illustrated throughout with a running example application. Concluding with a thorough examination of configuration, security, troubleshooting, and other WAS administration tasks, they deliver all you need to make the most of WebSphere.

Inside, you’ll find complete coverage of WebSphere Application Server

  • Understand WebSphere Application Server application architecture and Web services
  • Install WAS and set up a development environment
  • Harness the WAS development tools, WSSD and WSAD, and establish Web testing
  • Master the fine points of servlet, JSP, EJB, and XML/XSLT development
  • Delve into SOAP, WSDL, UDDI, and other Web services programming standards
  • Get up to speed on session–management configuration, application packaging, and other administration essentials
  • Maximize WAS performance using the Resource Analyzer, wscb, and other performance–tuning and troubleshooting techniques

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall a good reference 25 Nov. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Our company has just purchased WAS to replace our existing application server. We have grown to the point where we want to get an application server that will scale well(and be supported well). I found that this book covers the install and administration tasks quite well. That's really what I needed from this book. I have also gone through some of the development sections and like the code examples that are supplied. This book does have a lot of information about using the IBM Toolset in conjuction with WAS(which we have not purchased), but I was able to follow the examples just the same. It does seem like the WebSphere Studio(WSAD) tool would work well with WAS(I guess they should), but I was able to use my UltraEdit and javac just fine. I would recommend this book to people who need to learn WAS 4 administration or learn how to develop and implement software on it for the real world. I have found it to fulfill all my WAS needs.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor Reference 22 Dec. 2003
By grandpiano_57 - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am glad others found the book useful. I found it nearly worhtless although I was pleased with the WSAD 4 coverage. However, explanations are minimal and trying to deploy your first app to WebSphere 4 using this book was a waste. After reading and re-reading everything it said, we still had no success so we just dug in, trial and error, several days and finally got it. Discussions on virtual hosts offered us nothing but a few descriptions that only make sense after you understand what a virtual host is. With paragraph after paragraph labeled understanding, I would have thought some would have been imparted - we needed quick understanding in a real project and the way things are today, we needed it fast. The book gets rarely referenced by myself. There is just not enough in depth explanation to save one from the school of "hard knocks". A student, with time may get some value as an introduction but overall I was disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good as a tutorial, good as a reference.. 27 Nov. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Complete, detailed, easy to read and understand, this book should be shipped with every copy of Websphere Server. The best money I've spent on a technical book in years. If you are developing applications with Websphere, you should own a copy of this book. It clearly explains how to exploit J2EE technologies in your application architecture, as well as how to take advantage of the features of Websphere Server. Invaluable as a learning guide or as a reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tough material is presented well... 9 Sept. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I enjoyed learning from this book. It explained things to me in a concise and easy to follow manner. I was able to gain an understanding of how WebSphere works - the big picture, and my application server was up and running relatively quickly. The sharing of tips and tricks is something you just can't gain from a manual!

2.0 out of 5 stars Useless for the newbies 11 Feb. 2004
By G. Mantovani - Published on
Format: Paperback
I bought this book because it was marketed as a guide for the beginners and intermediates. Lie.
I needed to learn websphere for my job, so after the first few chapters I had to stop because the thing started to fly way over my head. All I needed was something to explain me the basics and the most common architecture and mechanics.
This book doesn't do that. Maybe if you are a veteran with Websphere, this might be good, but if you are looking for something to get you started, stay away from this book.
