From Barnes & NobleThe Barnes & Noble Review
Next, from Eclipse: the Web Tool Platform, an integrated, comprehensive toolset for standards-based Java web development. All that's missing is a definitive guide to using it. Now three of WTP's key contributors have written that book: everything you won't find in online help, from architectural techniques to sophisticated code examples.
By the end of Part I, you'll be building real apps, thanks to the authors' surprisingly realistic case study project. Then, step-by-step, they introduce WTP's entire rich toolset: tools for presentation, business logic, and persistence; web services; even testing. From XML to SQL, WSDL to Apache Axis, it's covered -- and if that's not enough, there's a full section on extending WTP with new server runtimes, file types, and extensions. (Real-world examples: GlassFish and DocBook.) Finally, you'll preview what's coming in WTP, including support for JSP, AJAX, and Java EE 5. Impressive platform, impressive book.
