Expert One-On-One J2EE Development Without EJB (Expert One-On-One)by Rod Johnson
Synopses & Reviews
What is this book about?
Expert One-on-One J2EE Development without EJB shows Java developers and architects how to build robust J2EE applications without having to use Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB). This practical, code-intensive guide provides best practices for using simpler and more effective methods and tools, including JavaServer pages, servlets, and lightweight frameworks.
What does this book cover?
The book begins by examining the limits of EJB technology — what it does well and not so well. Then the authors guide you through alternatives to EJB that you can use to create higher quality applications faster and at lower cost — both agile methods as well as new classes of tools that have evolved over the past few years.
They then dive into the details, showing solutions based on the lightweight framework they pioneered on SourceForge — one of the most innovative open source communities. They demonstrate how to leverage practical techniques and tools, including the popular open source Spring Framework and Hibernate. This book also guides you through productive solutions to core problems, such as transaction management, persistence, remoting, and Web tier design. You will examine how these alternatives affect testing, performance, and scalability, and discover how lightweight architectures can slash time and effort on many projects.

Are your J2EE projects taking too long to develop? Are they hard to debug? Do they result in disappointing performance? You may still be using traditional approaches to J2EE that are overly complex and not truly object-oriented. Many of these problems relate to EJB: a complex technology that has not lived up to its hype.
In this hands-on guide, Ill show you alternatives to EJB that can be used to create higher quality applications faster and at lower cost. Ill demonstrate how to leverage practical techniques and tools, including the popular open source Spring Framework and Hibernate. Ill guide you through productive solutions to core problems such as transaction management, persistence, remoting, and web tier design. We will examine how these alternatives affect testing, performance, and scalability, and discover how lightweight architectures can slash time and effort on many projects.
Ive been working with servlets, EJB, JSP™, and other J2EE technologies since their release. (As co-lead of Spring, Juergen also brings a wealth of expertise.) Im excited to share my experience with you, one-on-one.
