Building J2ee(tm) Applications with the Rational Unified Process (Addison-Wesley Object Technology)by Peter Eeles
Synopses & Reviews
Two of the most significant technological development trends of the past few years have been the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE), a platform specifically geared to the needs of enterprise systems, and the Rational Unified Process (RUP), a comprehensive development methodology.
Building J2EE Applications with the Rational Unified Process is the first book to bring these two key development concepts together. Featuring a non-trivial sample application, the book demonstrates a customized subset of RUP that is relevant and essential to J2EE development. The text guides readers through the entire development process, from initial requirements gathering through system implementation, illuminating real-world intricacies, complications, tradeoffs, and decision making.
The book presents a review of the latest releases of J2EE and RUP, emphasizing the rationale behind their content. A developer roadmap helps readers navigate the development process successfully, and detailed discussions of each aspect of the process reveal practical strategies and techniques.
Also provided is detailed coverage of the key aspects behind any successful software development effort:
Written for anyone working in J2EE or using RUP, this book is an comprehensive guide that reveals how J2EE and the Rational Unified Process come together to produce a powerful, efficient, and effective approach to enterprise application development.
Forewords were prepared by John Crupi, Distinguished Engineer at Sun Microsystems (and coauthor of Core J2EE Patterns, Prentice Hall, 2001), and Philippe Kruchten, Director of RUP Development at Rational Software (and author of The Rational Unified Process, Addison-Wesley, 2000).

Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
This book is a Rational Software Corporation-specific book focusing on the development of J2EE applications (version 1.3) within a RUP (Rational Unified Process) environment. As such, the book has a heavy dependency on UML (version 1.4). The authors aim to give the reader a basic understanding of component architectures and associated technologies, and how these component architectures and technologies are applied in the context of systematic development, specifically the Rational Unified Process. The reader will learn a set of proven best practices, guidelines, and standards that apply to systems development. It will reflect the next version of RUP which is scheduled for release during in 2002. This version of RUP will be a considerable departure from the current version.
Helpful technology overview helps reader learn basics of J2EE, RUP, UML, and various critical web technologies. This is must-have information for any Java developer working in an organization that uses the RUP.
