Core J2EE PatternsBest Practices and Design Strategies
Completely updated and revised, this is the second edition of the best-seller Core J2EE Patterns. J2EE has become the platform of choice for Web-centric distributed enterprise application development. Expert consultants from the Sun Java Center have identified powerful J2EE design patterns that lead to applications with superior performance, scalability, and robustness. This book brings those design patterns together, sharing Sun's best practices for development with Java Server Pages (JSP), Servlets, EJB, and other J2EE technologies. It presents a complete catalog of J2EE patterns encapsulating proven and recommended designs for common J2EE-related problems, organized into presentation tier, business tier and integration tier solutions. This second edition introduces new patterns, new refactorings, new patterns for using XML as well as new patterns for J2EE Web services. The authors also identify bad practices to be avoided. Finally, it presents an end-to-end multi-tier case study covering every stage of enterprise development.
"The Java landscape is littered with libraries, tools, and specifications. What's been lacking is the expertise to fuse them into solutions to real-world problems. These patterns are the intellectual mortar for J2EE software construction."
--John Vlissides, co-author of Design Patterns, the "Gang of Four" book
"The authors of Core J2EE Patterns have harvested a really useful set of patterns. They show how to apply these patterns and how to refactor your system to take advantage of them. It's just like having a team of experts sitting at your side."
--Grady Booch, Chief Scientist, Rational Software Corporation
"The authors do a great job describing useful patterns for application architectures. The section on refactoring is worth the price of the entire book!"
--Craig McClanahan, Struts Lead Architect and Specification Lead for JavaServer Faces
"Core J2EE Patterns is the gospel that should accompany every J2EE application server...Built upon the in-the-trenches expertise of its veteran architect authors, this volume unites the platform's many technologies and APIs in a way that application architects can use, and provides insightful answers to the whys, whens, and hows of the J2EE platform."
--Sean Neville, JRun Enterprise Architect, Macromedia
Developers often confuse learning the technology with learning to design with the technology. In this book, senior architects from the Sun Java Center share their cumulative design experience on Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) technology.
The primary focus of the book is on patterns, best practices, design strategies, and proven solutions using the key J2EE technologies including JavaServer Pages(TM) (JSP(TM)), Servlets, Enterprise JavaBeans(TM) (EJB(TM)), and Java(TM) Message Service (JMS) APIs. The J2EE Pattern Catalog with 21 patterns and numerous strategies is presented to document and promote best practices for these technologies.
Core J2EE Patterns, Second Edition offers the following:
- J2EE Pattern Catalog with 21 patterns--fully revised and newly documented patterns providing proven solutions for enterprise applications
- Design strategies for the presentation tier, business tier, and integration tier
- Coverage of servlets, JSP, EJB, JMS, and Web Services
- J2EE technology bad practices
- Refactorings to improve existing designs using patterns
- Fully illustrated with UML diagrams
- Extensive sample code for patterns, strategies, and refactorings
