Developing Enterprise Java Applications with J2ee(tm) and UML (Addison-Wesley Object Technology)by Khawar Zaman Ahmed
Synopses & Reviews
The Java 2 Platform Enterprise Edition (J2EE TM) offers great promise for dramatically improving the way that enterprise applications are built, and organizations that have adopted the J2EE are gaining a competitive advantage. The industry-standard Unified Modeling Language (UML) has helped countless organizations achieve software success through visual modeling. Together, the UML and J2EE form a powerful set of tools, but the intricacies involved with using them in tandem are considerable.
While UML is highly effective for specifying, designing, constructing, visualizing, and documenting software systems, J2EE offers enterprise developers a simplified, component-based approach to application development. However, when using the two technologies together, developers must first consider--and attempt to reconcile--the different characteristics of each.
Developing Enterprise Java Applications with J2EE TM and UML examines the best ways to jointly leverage these technologies. Exploring concrete methods for completing a successful development project, the authors cover the use of UML and J2EE in detail. Using practical examples and a case study, they illustrate the pros and cons of specific design approaches, show how personal experience can affect design decisions, and demonstrate proven approaches for building better, software faster.
With this book as a guide, developers will be able to overcome the challenges in using UML and J2EE together, and be on their way to building robust, scalable, and complex applications.
Book News Annotation:
For software architects and developers, a guide to development with Java 2 Platform Enterprise Edition and the Unified Modeling Language. Used together, they can provide robust, scalable, and complex applications, but first developers must reconcile the different characteristics of each. The text uses practical examples and a case study to illustrate the pros and cons of specific design approaches. Assumes some familiarity with Java, C++, or a similar language; prior experience with UML, J2EE, or enterprise application development is helpful but not required.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
This reference demonstrates how to use J2EE and Unified Modelling Language (UML) to develop enterprise Java applications. Both the authors have experience in building robust J2EE applications using UML. The volume also seeks to give the reader an appreciation of the challenges involved.
