Real World Java EE Patterns Rethinking Best Practices based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This book is helping me shift my thinking from J2EE to Java EE. Many of the old J2EE design patterns are obsolete or have become anti-patterns in Java EE, but it's difficult to find documentation that describes how the fundamental architecture has changed. Adam Bien has included excellent, real-world examples, and he explains them thoroughly and clearly. I don't agree with everything the author says. For example, when he talks about SOA implementations, he only mentions REST services, but I've found that SOAP services are a better option for many applications. But the book has encouraged me to question many of my assumptions about Java enterprise applications, and I'm learning a tremendous amount.
