An ideal guide to solving pitfalls in the Java language and related J2EETM technologies, written by programmers for programmers!
With the release of J2EE, Java has grown beyond a simple language to a full-blown development platform. Developers need to understand more than just the Java language–they also need to know about Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB), JavaServer Pages (JSP), servlets, and other Java technologies.
Although it’s more powerful, Java isn’t perfect. Weaknesses in the language itself–as well as in J2EE and its related technologies–can cause programs to go haywire, and fixing them can waste a lot of precious time. Fortunately, developers can turn to More Java Pitfalls (a sequel to the popular original book, Java Pitfalls) to identify and avoid these traps.
More Java Pitfalls provides in-depth coverage of fifty completely new Java pitfalls, showing detailed code-level solutions. Used as a reference guide or training tutorial, this book:
- Covers the latest J2EE and JDK 1.4 specifications
- Extends coverage to related J2EE technologies, including EJBs, JSPs, and Servlets
- Covers new Java Web service APIs including JAXP, JAXR, and JAXM
- Addresses new pitfalls in the areas of J2ME, GUI programming, new input/output (NIO), and utilities
The companion Web site for this book contains sample pitfalls, source code, errata, and links to additional resources.
