Amazon.com Review

Centering on Sun's Enterprise JavaBeans (EJBs) 1.1 specification, Mastering Enterprise JavaBeans surveys the range of technologies and APIs needed to use EJBs successfully. Mixing a high-level perspective on EJBs with plenty of practical programming advice, this title makes a good choice for the IS manager or developer planning to use EJBs in future projects.

This book succeeds in two notable ways. First, it presents a fine high-level overview describing EJBs and how they fit into today's multitiered, server-side enterprise architectures. The author makes connections between EJBs and other component architectures (such as Microsoft DNA and CORBA). Illustrated with numerous diagrams, these chapters will be useful to anyone seeking to understand the basics of Sun's powerful component model.

This title also serves as a programming primer for serious EJB development. In later sections, the author introduces practical advice for creating both session and entity beans, with plenty of nuts-and-bolts advice, including how to work with actual EJB products. (This book also shows you what to look for when purchasing an EJB application server to deploy your bean components.)

Later chapters delve into transaction management and show how to use Java with CORBA and IIOP. The text culminates in an impressive case study using EJBs and Java servlets to power an e-commerce Web site (complete with an online catalog and a shopping cart). This example is a standout, and it's all you will likely need to get started with EJBs in custom projects. Final appendices cover several APIs and standards in more detail, including RMI, JNDI, and XML.

In all, this title succeeds at bringing the EJB standard home to the practical reader. It demystifies EJBs and gives both managers and developers what they need to start solving business problems using this powerful new component model. --Richard Dragan

From the Back Cover

"This book is a must–have for developers who want to jumpstart their EJB development process. Ed Roman shows the right way to use the J2EE technology with in–depth examples and coding patterns from the real world. We recommend this book as part of our education materials for both in–house staff and customer engagements." – William W. Lee, Chief Technology Officer, The Theory Center

What some are calling the best thing to happen to enterprise programming since Java itself, Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) radically streamlines the server–side application development process. In this book, you′ll learn EJB from a developer′s perspective–––the author cuts through the marketing hype and shows you both the good and the bad in developing real–world EJB applications. You′ll learn everything you need to jumpstart your EJB development, ––from understanding the basics of the EJB architecture, to developing transactional, scalable, and secure multi–user enterprise applications. After reading this book, you′ll know how to:
∗ Develop with both EJB 1.0 as well as the new EJB 1.1 standard
∗ Master the technologies that complement EJB: Java RMI, RMI–IIOP, JTA, JNDI, CORBA, and XML. E(each of these topics is covered in full)
∗ Develop with both bean types: session beans (stateful and stateless), and entity beans (bean–managed and container–managed persistent)
∗ Design, implement, and deploy a real–world e–commerce system, with a total of nine enterprise beans and seven Java servlets
∗ Avoid pitfalls that could make your code non–portable across EJB servers
∗ Make an educated EJB server purchase decision

The CD–ROM provides you with:
∗ An immense amount of sample code that you can extend for your own needs
∗ A trial of the BEA WebLogic EJB server for getting started right away

On the companion Web site you′ll find:
∗ Updates to the book
∗ A treasure trove of links to EJB and J2EE resources
