  • Develop and deploy complete applications with JEE

Who This Book Is For

If you are a Java developer who has little or no experience in JEE application development or you have experience in JEE technology but are looking for tips to simplify and accelerate your development process, then this book is for you.

What You Will Learn

  • Set up Eclipse, Tomcat, and Glassfish server for JEE application development
  • Use JSP, Servlet, JSF, and EJBs to create a user interface and write business logic
  • Create JEE database applications using JDBC and JPA
  • Handle asynchronous messages using MDBs for better scalability
  • Deploy and debug JEE applications and create SOAP and REST web services
  • Write unit tests and calculate code coverage
  • Troubleshoot application performance and memory issues

In Detail

Java EE is a technology for developing enterprise class, scalable applications. With recent changes to Java EE specifications, JEE application development has become a lot simpler. However, recent changes have also added many new specifications, some of which compete with existing JEE specification. Along with JEE specifications and APIs, it is also very important to understand the entire application development process and tools that can help simplify and accelerate JEE application development.

This guide provides a complete overview of developing JEE applications using Eclipse. The many features of the Eclipse IDE are explained. These enable the rapid development, debugging, testing, and deployment of JEE applications. You'll explore not just different JEE technologies and how to use them (JSP, JSF, JPA, JDBC, EJB, web services etc.), but also suitable technologies for different scenarios.

The book starts with how to set up the development environment for JEE applications and then goes on to describe many JEE specifications in detail, with an emphasis on examples. You'll learn how to deploy an example application on Tomcat and Glassfish Application Server.

You'll create a simple application that reads from a queue, processes the request, and publishes results to a topic and Eclipse MAT (Memory Analysis Tool) to debug memory issues.

Style and approach

This guide takes a step-by-step approach to developing, testing, debugging, and troubleshooting JEE applications, complete with examples and tips.

    Comments about oreilly Java EE Development with Eclipse, 2nd Edition:

    This book will appeal to anyone looking to get more familiar with the tools and technology in the Java EE ecosystem. There are plenty of individual books out there on Java EE, Eclipse, Maven, Git, database programming, etc, but this book wraps it up in one package.

    The book is clear and well written. The author has obviously put a lot of thought into how one topic leads to the next. The examples work! (unlike a lot of other books I've been reading recently).

    If you're looking for a good all-round introduction to the JEE ecosystem then I really don't think you could better this book.

      Comments about oreilly Java EE Development with Eclipse, 2nd Edition:

      A solid book on the core of Java EE addressing the core EE technologies including:
      - Java Database Connectivity (JDBC)
      - Java Connector Architecture (JCA)
      - Java Persistence Architecture (JPA)
      - Enterprise Java Beans (EJB)
      - Java Server Faces (JSF)
      - Web services (REST & SOAP)
      - Java Messaging (JMS)
      - Spring Model View Controller (MVC)

      The book doesn't go into the deepest details on these areas, as they all warrant (and get) books in their own right. But there is plenty to get to grips with the foundations.

      On the Eclipse side of things, the book shows you how to link to Tomcat and Glassfish servers, build through the use of Maven, use of configuration control, debugging, unit testing with Mockito.

      The book is clearly illustrated and shows a lot of these technologies with examples that you can work through.
