Publisher Comments:

Nothing is as constant as change, and this is as true in enterprise computing as anywhere else. Since Java Enterprise in a Nutshell was first published in September of 1999, a dozen or more new APIs have been added to the platform, reflecting the new and different ways developers implement their enterprise objectives. And now developers are being called on to add even greater, more complex levels of interconnectivity to their applications, as the concepts behind Web Services solidify and implementation decisions need coding.

Java developers today need a clear understanding of the new APIs, tools, capabilities and pitfalls in J2EE 2.0 so they can plan a technology and implementation strategy for new enterprise projects. Fortunately, this is exactly what they get with the new Java Enterprise in a Nutshell, 2nd edition!

Completely revised and updated for the new 2.0 version of Sun Microsystems Java Enterprise Edition software, Java Enterprise in a Nutshell 2nd edition covers all of the J2EE APIs, including RMI, Java IDL, JDBC, JNDI, Java Servlet, and Enterprise JavaBeans, with a fast-paced tutorial and compact reference on each technology. Then Java Enterprise in a Nutshell goes even further, providing a classic O?Reilly-style quick reference for all of the classes in the various packages that comprise the Enterprise APIs - covering the core enterprise APIs as well as numerous standard extensions.


The Java Enterprise APIs are building blocks for creating enterprise-wide distributed applications in Java. "Java Enterprise in a Nutshell" covers the RMI, Java IDL, JDBC, JNDI, Java Servlet, and Enterprise JavaBeans APIs, with a fast-paced tutorial and compact reference material on each technology.
