For courses in Web Development (CGI, XMl), Java/Visual J++, and Java—Intermediate/Advanced Programming.
This is an advanced book for Java programmers who need to create applications that manipulate XML-encoded data. Topics covered include parsing and processing XML with Java, Java serialization messaging, RMI, and enterprise Java Beans. All of the source code will be made available on the accompanying CD-ROM.

Aimed at the advanced Java developer or systems architect, Enterprise Applications Integration with XML and Java combines a leading-edge tour of XML used with Java, plus innovative programming strategies for getting your enterprise systems to share data without re-engineering them. Besides introducing some innovative techniques with these two standards, this title also gives you a good tour of some of the latest XML tools.
This book will serve the needs of several types of readers. First, for the IT manager or systems architect, it does a fine job of introducing Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) as a goal for the new millennium, and the strengths of Java and XML (and message systems) to get disparate systems to share data. It then delves into an industrial-strength tour of XML and related standards aimed at the more advanced reader (relying on the notation of Extended Backus-Naur Form to show off XML, which will be familiar to those with a background in computer science). How EAI architects can model databases and message-oriented middleware (MOM) in XML is discussed. The most innovative material here demonstrates how to map Java objects into XML, and in an advanced chapter, even Java code itself. (A simple Swing program written in XML is one extremely clever example that shows how powerful XML really is.)
An important strategy here is the notion of declarative programming, in which developers model and transform different data sets between systems in XML instead of writing procedural code. If anything, the techniques and tools can get you thinking about new levels of flexibility when it comes to data and Java used with XML. The last 200 pages include the formal W3C definitions for XML 1.0 (plus the Document Object Model). While these sections will perhaps most interest the Java/XML guru, other reference sections on the SAX API and Java to XML bindings will be immediately practical on a daily basis.
Some texts make XML easy and approachable, but few showcase the real powers of XML for data flexibility as well as this one does. Experienced Java developers who really want to master XML will certainly want a look at this intriguing and challenging book, as will knowledgeable system architects interested in seeing what Java and XML can offer when it comes to integrating the enterprise. --Richard Dragan, amazon.com
Integrate your enterprise with XML and Java!
Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) links diverse applications, platforms, and operating systems so they work as one-and deliver powerful business results seamlessly. Platform-independent Java is one powerful tool for building EAI applications, and XML adds the missing link: robust mechanisms to exchange data with non-Java applications. Now there's a complete, step-by-step guide to using Java and XML together to deliver enterprise integration solutions that work! Enterprise Application Integration With XML and Java covers all this, and more:
Whether you're a technical manager planning for enterprise application integration, or a Java developer tasked with delivering it, Enterprise Application Integration With XML and Java delivers the in-depth solutions and real-world expertise you need.CD-ROM INCLUDED
The CD-ROM contains extensive source code from the book, plus a remarkable library of leading-edge software and trialware, including: Bluestone Visual-XML desktop XML development environment; IBM XML4J Java-based parser; and Push-technologies SpiritWAVE2 implementation of the Java Messaging Service!
