Java EE Development with Eclipse based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Given that Oracle now owns Java, it is encouraging to see this book explain how Java at the enterprise level can be coded in the open source Eclipse framework. Much of the book's long structure is devoted to the details of this, with many code snippets and screen captures. The reader will however see ample examples where Oracle is emphasising its own offerings. Like the OracleDriver java class under the jdbc category. This lets you write Java code that connects to a port, by default 1521 at the local machine, at which the Oracle database is listening. This database being 11g; which should not surprise you. Another major case is the numerous places in the text where the WebLogic Server is used. Some examples are good for demonstrating how to write Java code that does the front end graphics and hooks up to the back end database. A full work through of all these aspects. Another merit of the book is the discussion of JSF - Java Server Faces for tabular presentations of data. A nice structured approach to encapsulating and showing such data. While the mechanisms of asynchronous web pages is laid out, letting you write more interactive web code. It should be said that the XML files are not getting any smaller! The verbosity of XML has been long noted. The XML snippets proferred here just continue that trend. Essentially, more parameters are being stuffed into the XML, especially for the build.xml files.
