Overview

The standard platform for enterprise application development has been EJB but the difficulties of working with it caused it to become unpopular. They also gave rise to lightweight technologies such as Hibernate, Spring, JDO, iBATIS and others, all of which allow the developer to work directly with the simpler POJOs. Now EJB version 3 solves the problems that gave EJB 2 a black eye-it too works with POJOs. POJOs in Action describes the new, easier ways to develop enterprise Java applications. It describes how to make key design decisions when developing business logic using POJOs, including how to organize and encapsulate the business logic, access the database, manage transactions, and handle database concurrency. This book is a new-generation Java applications guide: it enables readers to successfully build lightweight applications that are easier to develop, test, and maintain.

The Barnes & Noble Review
Today’s lightweight Java frameworks liberate you from traditional EJBs, allowing you to work with “Plain Old Java Objects.” Even Sun’s official EJB 3.0 buys into the new paradigm. Ultimately, it’s an easier way to work, but very different. POJOs in Action is your start-to-finish guide to making it happen.

Chris Richardson begins by reviewing the key differences between POJO design and “old-style” EJB 2 design. You’ll walk through a sample application, reviewing key design issues and trade-offs (and considering your technology choices, too). Richardson systematically introduces one well-proven approach to POJO design, in which business logic is implemented through an object-oriented domain model, then presents other valid design alternatives. There’s also a full section on database issues, ranging from search screens to database concurrency.

Whether you plan to use Spring, Hibernate, JDO, iBATIS, or EJB 3.0 itself, this book’s just what the doctor ordered. Bill Camarda, from the March 2006 Read Only
