9780131480100: J2EE 1.4: The Big Picture

A thorough introduction to the complexities of J2EE that explains the big picture without getting bogged down in the details or hype.

Written for managers and techies alike
J2EE helps enterprises extend their reach, reduce their costs, and lower their response times by providing easy-to-access services to customers, partners, employees, and suppliers
Tightly focused on J2EE, a great first stop for anyone seeking to learn about the potential and promises of the technology

In short, J2EE is a powerful, but complex technology. J2EE is many things, but essentially it is a standard for application servers. In this innovative new book, the authors provide a concise and entertaining introduction to the J2EE platform for professionals who need to understand the big picture, and may or may not be technically savvy. The book provides an overview of the four key tiers in J2EE and how they work, at a level anyone can understand. This book is tightly focused on J2EE and will not address competing technologies or extended implementation or specific development or deployment details.

From the Back Cover:

"Need to learn J2EE? J2EE 1.4: The Big Picture is a must-have guide that is both enjoyable and educational. I highly recommend it."

--Peter van der Linden, software consultant and author of Expert C Programming, Not Just Java, and Just Java


"Anyone working with J2EE needs this book. You can get the details and the code examples from a lot of other places, but this book provides the essential under-standing of all the parts and how they work together."

--Simon Roberts, author of the Sun Certified Enterprise Architect for J2EE Technology Certification Exam and Study Guide


"I've ordered copies of J2EE 1.4: The Big Picture for everyone in my department. Not only because it's the most understandable technical book I've ever read, but because my review copy keeps disappearing from my office."

--Larissa Carroll, manager, BEA Systems


"If you're tired of technical books that are all about the details and don't tell you how the whole thing works, you want this book. There's absolutely nothing else like it."

--Patricia Parkhill, managing editor, Sun Microsystems


"I like it very much. It definitely paints a clear picture of the whole J2EE thing. It's a book I'd recommend to J2EE developers of any skill level."

--Dirk Schreckmann, JavaRanch Journal Editor and Sheriff in the JavaRanch Big Moose Saloon


"This book gives me a headache, because on just about every page I'd slap myself in the head and say 'That's it?!? That's what all the mystery is about?!' Now I feel like I'm in the know. I might not be able to code this stuff yet, but I sure get what's going on now."

--Floyd Jones, senior technical writer, BEA Systems


"This book makes J2EE seem so easy. The informal, friendly tone of the book is extremely helpful. It made me understand the beans stuff, CMP and BMP, with-out any effort at all. In fact, it is frighteningly perfect and uncomplicated. I think the book is also just the right one for managers, project managers, and other non-techies who interact with J2EE developers."

--Manish Hatwalne, Software Consultant, Circus Software LLC


"I love J2EE 1.4: The Big Picture. I love how it breaks down a big thing, like J2EE services and architecture, into smaller digestible chunks. And once in the micro topic, the explanations are so easy to absorb. The explanations do build on top of each other, making--dare I say it--a big picture. And I FINALLY GET TRANSACTIONS!"

--Jeannie Saur, documentation specialist, Trimble Navigation Limited


"I would recommend this as a good beginner's reference for J2EE, or for anyone looking for a supplement for an advanced J2EE course."

--College Java instructor

About the Author:

Solveig Haugland is a technical writer and instructor. She knows what it's like to sit through hours of tech gibberish that make absolutely no sense. She would sooner drink a vial of really vile poison than put stuff into this book like "session beans reify the enduring business processes of your enterprise." Without a suitable explanation, at least.

Mark Cade is a member of Sun Professional Services. This is the same group that brought you John Crupi, Deepak Alur, and Dan Malks of Core J2EE Patterns fame. Mark's been with Java since the beginning and works on big J2EE projects for a living. He's also the coauthor of the Sun J2EE architect exam and the architect exam study guide.

Anthony Orapallo is a technical instructor and has taught a variety of Java topics, including Sun's Enterprise JavaBeans course. He knows what it's like to be up there in front of a class explaining just what the Home interface is, so he knows how to teach.
