Master the Jakarta Commons Library of Open Source JavaTM Components

Using the Apache Jakarta Commons reusable Java™ components, you can leverage the work of the global open-source community to solve common programming problems reliably, quickly, and inexpensively. But, to use the Commons libraries effectively, you need far more guidance than the official documentation offers. In Apache Jakarta Commons: Reusable Java™ Components, Will Iverson covers what Java developers need to know to take full advantage of Jakarta Commons—starting right now.

Iverson begins with a definitive overview of the Commons project: goals, installation, and getting started with Commons components.

Iverson provides detailed code samples for every component he describes. After you've mastered the core Jakarta Commons packages, you'll constantly rely on this book's handy seventy-five page quick-reference. Iverson's coverage includes

  • Downloading Commons project libraries and installing them into Eclipse

  • Programmatically accessing resources via HTTP, FTP, NNTP, and other Internet protocols

  • Traversing complex object graphs with JXPath

  • Using Jakarta Commons' advanced collections tools to establish richer object relationships

  • Extending java.lang with better methods for manipulating core classes

  • Implementing conversion routines, configurable logging, command-line help, and more

  • Exploring the newest packages, including emerging "sandbox" packages
