Fatbrain ReviewMake no mistake, the Object Web is the forthcoming paradigm of the Internet. This book prepares you for this new archetype, which is also described as the "morphing of distributed objects and the Web." This much revised and expanded client/server programming guide provides Object Web solutions and integrates JavaBeans, Enterprise JavaBeans and CORBA. Keep in mind that this is not a Java/CORBA tutorial, this is an advanced text. The authors assume prior knowledge of the Java language, CORBA ORBs, IDL and familiarity with distributed and client/server concepts.
This edition features a complete rewrite of the sample programs -- for example the COUNT program now uses portable server-side APIs. The authors also specifically explain the integration of CORBA and Java object models; hence they provide a distributed object platform. After reviewing CORBA and Java, they arrive at a three-tier Object Web model. Here, they explore programming concepts, performance comparisons, local invocations and remote invocations. The fascinating performance comparisons include: applets versus client applications, just in time compilers versus interpreters, C++ versus Java ORB, and Java/CORBA versus legacies and competitors. The authors also explain CORBA's interface repository, including POA adopted in CORBA 3.0. They then compare CORBA/Java with JDBC and explain the Java Bean component model and the 100% CORBA-compatible Enterprise JavaBeans (EJBs). Finally, they bring all these technologies together in a revised JavaBeans ClubMed client/server application.
The CD-ROM contains client/server applications, tools and utilities.
To get up to speed, we strongly recommendthe author's prior introductory volumes such as The Essential Client/Server Survival Guide, The Essential Distributed Objects Survival Guide or Instant CORBA. Other good complementary volumes for this publication are Java Programming with CORBA and The Essential CORBA: Systems Integration Using Distributed Objects.
