Enterprise JavaBeans, 2nd Edition

Pages: 489

Enterprise JavaBeans (versions 1.1 and 1.0) is an important technology for server-side application development in Java. It offers a component architecture for developing distributed, multitiered enterprise applications. This model allows you to build complex, mission-critical systems using simple snap-together pieces that model individual business objects and processes. Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) greatly simplifies the process of development by automatically taking care of system issues like object persistence and transaction management.

This book provides a thorough introduction to EJB 1.1 and 1.0 for the enterprise software developer. It shows you how to develop enterprise Beans to model your business objects and processes. One powerful advantage of the EJB architecture is that it allows you to partition work appropriately between different parts of the system: the database provides persistence, your Beans model various business entities and the interactions between them, and your client application provides a user interface, but incorporates minimal business logic. The end result is a highly flexible system built from components that can easily be reused, and that can be changed to suit your needs without upsetting other parts of the system.

Enterprise JavaBeans, 2nd Edition teaches you how to take advantage of the flexibility and simplicity that this powerful new architecture provides.

This book covers:

  • Enterprise JavaBeans 1.1 and 1.0
  • Developing entity Beans and session Beans
  • XML Deployment Descriptors
  • Using the client-side API to use enterprise Beans
  • Transaction Management
  • Design Strategies
  • Introduction to J2EE

1.0

Actually pretty poor.

Comments about oreilly Enterprise JavaBeans, 2nd Edition:

Probably the worst O'Reilley book I have come across. The content is extensive but hard to follow and the examples are poorly constructed.

For a beginner java beans is a difficult enough subject to grasp, but using a IDE tool is extremely useful, as it at least provides some guidelines. Sadly the book relies solely on hand coding, which is frustrating and difficult.

Enterprise JavaBeans, 2nd Edition Review

Comments about oreilly Enterprise JavaBeans, 2nd Edition:

I'd like to comment on the overall appearance of the book. First of all, I have

to say that I'm positively surprised by the thoroughness and quality of writing

of the author Richard Monson-Haefel. I find his book very instructive and

it makes for a decent lead-in to the EJB subject. The book is well organized

and every chapter builds on knowledge aquired in former chapters.

The content of the book notwithstanding, I have to give the bookbinding a huge

thumbs-down. Try to work with the book, make annotations, and leaf through the

chapters and not see any of the pages come off !

Please, please, please provide your books with a more durable backbinding.

If that is more expensive for you, I'm willing to pay more money for your

otherwise execellent books, okay ? The binding of the Enterprise JavaBeans book

is definitely unworthy of O'Reilly and Associates.

Best regards,

D. Fahrenholtz

Comments about oreilly Enterprise JavaBeans, 2nd Edition:

Overall very good book. Only problem is the example cruise reservation

system did not have a class diagram which would have made it easier to

understand. Also, the JNDI explanation was not too good. Other than that

I thought the book is the best for explaining EJB 1.1 concepts (see

ED Roman's book for EJB 1.0).

Comments about oreilly Enterprise JavaBeans, 2nd Edition:

Pros:

A very good reference on EJB and Serverside Computing environments.

Very descriptive on the EJB Architecture.

Cons:

Too much emphasis on EJB1.0

Not enough examples. IF you are looking for more examples or code snippets then this book falls short.

Comments about oreilly Enterprise JavaBeans, 2nd Edition:

Excellent

Frequently used in my library. It offers code that can serve as a "Template" for any of your entity and session beans. The complete description of container behavior is extremely helpful. I have used this book in conjunction with jBoss and Pramati and all the information applies perfectly.

I am looking forward to hopefully an early Edition 3, thanks to the recent 2.0 spec.

Enterprise JavaBeans, 2nd Edition Review

By Anil Datt

Comments about oreilly Enterprise JavaBeans, 2nd Edition:

When I started with EJB this was (EJB 1.0 version) the first book I had referred other than SUN EJB specification. As a beginner I had hard time understanding the details explained in the book. Later I went for a less technical detail book and jumped on back to EJB 1.0 version of this book. I could see how the book had covered technical details in depth. The examples explained ,provided me a spring board to jump on and work on EJB1.0. Since the book did not cover much on the Application server side featues there was an additional study needed to work on specific App server.

I bought the this Book (EJB 1.1) when I found that the Application server document could not describe in detail how to move from EJB 1.0 to 1.1. Again this was an excellent reference and could tranfer to EJB1.1 in no time.

I reccomend this book to everyone who is not a starter to EJB. There are lot of other books to understand the basic fundamentals of EJB. But for an advanced user this book is very very handy
