"The Java landscape is littered with libraries, tools, and
specifications. What's been lacking is the expertise to fuse them
into solutions to real-world problems. These patterns are the
intellectual mortar for J2EE software construction."
--John Vlissides, co-author of Design Patterns, the "Gang of Four" book
"The authors of Core J2EE Patterns have harvested a really
useful set of patterns. They show how to apply these patterns and
how to refactor your system to take advantage of them. It's just
like having a team of experts sitting at your side."
--Grady Booch, Chief Scientist, Rational Software Corporation
"The authors do a great job describing useful patterns for
application architectures. The section on refactoring is worth the
price of the entire book!"
--Craig McClanahan, Struts Lead Architect and Specification Lead for JavaServer Faces
"Core J2EE Patterns is the gospel that should accompany every
J2EE application server...Built upon the in-the-trenches expertise
of its veteran architect authors, this volume unites the platform's
many technologies and APIs in a way that application architects can
use, and provides insightful answers to the whys, whens, and hows
of the J2EE platform."
--Sean Neville, JRun Enterprise Architect, Macromedia
Developers often confuse learning the technology with learning to design with the technology. In this book, senior architects from the Sun Java Center share their cumulative design experience on Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) technology.
The primary focus of the book is on patterns, best practices, design strategies, and proven solutions using the key J2EE technologies including JavaServer Pages(TM) (JSP(TM)), Servlets, Enterprise JavaBeans(TM) (EJB(TM)), and Java(TM) Message Service (JMS) APIs. The J2EE Pattern Catalog with 21 patterns and numerous strategies is presented to document and promote best practices for these technologies.
Core J2EE Patterns, Second Edition offers the following:
J2EE Pattern Catalog with 21 patterns--fully revised and newly documented patterns providing proven solutions for enterprise applications
Design strategies for the presentation tier, business tier, and integration tier
Coverage of servlets, JSP, EJB, JMS, and Web Services
J2EE technology bad practices
Refactorings to improve existing designs using patterns
Fully illustrated with UML diagrams
Extensive sample code for patterns, strategies, and refactorings
