Jboss at Work: A Practical Guide

Overview

Consisting of a number of well-known open source products, JBoss is more a family of interrelated services than a single monolithic application. But, as with any tool that's as feature-rich as JBoss, there are number of pitfalls and complexities, too.

Most developers struggle with the same issues when deploying J2EE applications on JBoss: they have trouble getting the many J2EE and JBoss deployment descriptors to work together; they have difficulty finding out how to get ...

Overview

Consisting of a number of well-known open source products, JBoss is more a family of interrelated services than a single monolithic application. But, as with any tool that's as feature-rich as JBoss, there are number of pitfalls and complexities, too.

Most developers struggle with the same issues when deploying J2EE applications on JBoss: they have trouble getting the many J2EE and JBoss deployment descriptors to work together; they have difficulty finding out how to get started; their projects don't have a packaging and deployment strategy that grows with the application; or, they find the Class Loaders confusing and don't know how to use them, which can cause problems.

JBoss at Work: A Practical Guide helps developers overcome these challenges. As you work through the book, you'll build a project using extensive code examples. You'll delve into all the major facets of J2EE application deployment on JBoss, including JSPs, Servlets, EJBs, JMS, JNDI, web services, JavaMail, JDBC, and Hibernate. With the help of this book, you'll:

  • Implement a full J2EE application and deploy it on JBoss
  • Discover how to use the latest features of JBoss 4 and J2EE 1.4, including J2EE-compliant web services
  • Master J2EE application deployment on JBoss with EARs, WARs, and EJB JARs
  • Understand the core J2EE deployment descriptors and how they integrate with JBoss-specific descriptors
  • Base your security strategy on JAAS

Written for Java developers who want to use JBoss on their projects, the book covers the gamut of deploying J2EE technologies on JBoss, providing a brief survey of each subject aimed at the working professional with limited time.

If you're one of the legions of developers who have decided to give JBoss a try, then JBoss at Work: A Practical Guide is your next logical purchase. It'll show you in plain language how to use the fastest growing open source tool in the industry today. If you've worked with JBoss before, this book will get you up to speed on JBoss 4, JBoss WS (web services), and Hibernate 3.

As developers work through the book, they'll build a project using extensive code examples and delving into all the major facets of J2EE application deployment on JBoss, including JSPs, Servlets, EJBs, JMS, JNDI, web services, JavaMail, JDBC, and Hibernate.

    Very thorough, but also dense, cryptic and complex

    The authors cover every practical suject an IT professional will need for JBOSS, but unfortunately it seems like the editors put a limit on the number of pages and the book suffers from being excessivelyl cryptic and dense at times. The section on log4j is so complicated and cross references so many other sections 'Class loading, packaging, URL loading, CLASSPATH handling' it's practically useless. I don't think log4j was ever designed to be SO complicated. The section on building an EAR file 'CHAPTER 3'suffers from the same problem, being way too short and not discussing other alternatives different from the author's test application. Although I have worked with Hibernate before, I guess the Hibernate specification authors are better prepared to explain the fine points of integrating it to JBOSS. The chapter on JDBC, however, is quite helpful, being clear and thorough.

    This book truly is a practical guide

    The subtitle for this book is ¿A Practical Guide.¿ That subtitle is perfect. This is one of the most immediately useful and practical books I¿ve read in a long time. I began using JBoss at the same time I started reading this book and I appreciated that the book started out with the relatively simple task of getting JBoss installed. However, while the book starts at an introductory level it doesn¿t stay there. It progresses through more advanced topics such as JMS, JavaMail, JAAS, and Web Services. The writing is clear and enjoyable throughout. An extended example of a car dealer carries forward throughout the book. This helps the concepts fit together and build upon one another. JBoss at Work is highly informative and, as its subtitle promises, a practical guide. I highly recommend it.
