9780137491360: Advanced Java Networking

74913-5 Why Java is the language for building Internet and networked applications. Advanced Java Networking is the up-to-the-minute, insider's guide to Java's fast-growing set of networking alternatives. Sun Microsystems Software Engineer Prashant Sridharan shows how Java has been designed to optimize networked applications, covering architectural elements such as multithreading, serialization, and I/O. Then, step by step, he demonstrates how to create networked Java applications for client/server computing on the Internet, using each Java networking API. Compare the architectural and syntactical decisions associated with each alternative, as you learn how to: *Create quick, easy client/server applications with Java Remote Method Invocation (RMI). *Use Java Interface Definition Language IDL to create CORBA applications that communicate with legacy systems. *Use JDBC to build Java front ends that access corporate databases via SQL. Advanced Java Networking provides new insight into the next generation of Java networking tools, including both Sun and third-party technologies. Discover how you can: *Use Java Web Server servlets to create dynamic Web content.* Use Java Beans to build applications with plug-and-play software modules. *Use the Java Management API to create objects that can be centrally managed. *Use JavaOS, Java microprocessors and inexpensive network computers to distribute Java applications everywhere, at extraordinarily low cost. On the CD-ROM, you'll find all sample code and the complete JDK 1.1. Advanced Java Networking' is an essential resource for all Java software developers and engineers-and for every manager considering Java for networked applications.

Review:

Advanced Java Networking, 2nd Edition--an excellent introduction to sockets, RMI, IDL/CORBA, JDBC, and other APIs--surveys all the ways to create state-of-the-art server-side solutions with Java. If you're a developer or architect, this book can help you build scaleable Internet solutions.

Advanced Java is notable in at least two ways. First and foremost, it presents each Java networking API with real intelligence and enthusiasm. The authors of the second edition (who have revised the book thoroughly) prove they have considerable teaching experience by including plenty of interesting examples. The same application (for a simple appointment scheduling program) is used throughout the text. You learn how to use sockets, RMI, IDL/CORBA, and even servlets and JSPs to build different versions of the same application. This comparative approach gives you a sense of the strengths of each API. (A final chapter here outlines when to use each API, depending on your design needs.)

Besides hands-on coding examples, several chapters present a high-level introduction to new Java APIs like JINI, naming services, and JNDI, plus EJBs and network management with JMAP. Generally, this book strikes a good balance between explaining the underlying technology behind each Java API, plus basic sample code to help get you started. While you certainly don't need to use every networking API for every project, this title introduces them all so that you can choose the best approach. The new edition of Advanced Java Networking packages an excellent mix of sample code and technological expertise--of value in choosing the best options for networking on today's Java platform. --Richard Dragan, amazon.com
