The Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) is an extremely powerful platform for developing enterprise-level Java-based applications, primarily for the server. This book shows you how to harness that power, guiding you through the details of how the pieces of the J2EE platform fit together.
This book goes further than just showing you how to code a JSP or an EJB: It explains when and where to use these APIs, what their strengths and weaknesses are, and perhaps most important, how to employ the best practices for using them.
This book also contains hands-on tutorials, clear explanations, and working code examples that will take you to the next stepfrom writing client-side desktop applications to writing enterprise applications. You will learn how to use the individual APIs and tools in the J2EE platform, and how to bring these together to create your own enterprise applications.

This is the worse book I have ever read in java, it is very hard to follow the examples. I would not recommed to buy this book to anyone..I have followed the examples and other materials from sun web-site and is much better . I have followed the examples wih experience java developers and they agreed that is very hard to understand the materials of this book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The introduction to this book emphasises a 'meat and potatoes' approach. The authors focus on describing the key points of J2EE 1.4, that most users can expect to need, most of the time. The reason this is necessary is because J2EE in this latest iteration encompasses a group of subjects, each of which can be, and has been, the sole subject of a book. Specifically, we have Java Server Pages and Java Servlets. These are often used to make dynamic web pages, within a web server container like Tomcat, which gets an appendix of its own here, due to its importance. As a practical matter, these JSPs/Servlets often hook up to databases. So J2EE involves using JDBC. Another 2 chapters here. Business logic is often encapsulated using Enterprise Java Beans. These are now quite mature. Their widespread use in a J2EE context is reflected here in the 4 chapters devoted to them. These include a discussion of the recently introduced Message Driven Beans, used in JMS. Finally, 2 chapters are given over to Web Services. Here the discussion is somewhat skimpy. Not thru any fault of the authors. Web Services are currently very inchoate. Much is being claimed for their future potential. But in terms of what is defined and available right now - well there isn't much. If you really are interested in Web Services, try a companion volume from the same publisher, 'Google, Amazon and Beyond: Creating and Consuming Web Services' by Nakhimovsky and Myers. The utility of this book is in letting you quickly come up to speed on J2EE. As a practical matter, once you have done so, you may want to get comprehensive books on the specific J2EE subjects that you will be dealing with. A virtue of this book is that it deliberately is NOT comprehensive. But it gives you the gist of each subject.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
