EJB (Enterprise JavaBeans) 3.0 is a commonly used database persistence technology in Java EE applications. EJB 3.0 has simplified the development of EJBs with an annotations-based API that eliminates the use of remote/local interfaces, home/local home interfaces, and deployment descriptors. A number of other books are available on EJB 3.0, but none covers EJB 3.0 support in Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g, which is one of the leaders in the application server market.
This is the first book that covers all aspects of EJB 3.0 database persistence development using Oracle Fusion Middleware technology. It covers all the best practices for database persistence ensuring that your applications are easily maintainable. Leaving theory behind, this book uses real-world examples to guide you in building your own EJB 3.0 applications that are well integrated with commonly used Java EE frameworks.
The book gets going by discussing the new features in the EJB 3.0 specification. As some readers may still be using EJB 2.0, the book explains how to convert your EJB 2.0 entity beans to EJB 3.0. It then goes on to discuss using EJB 3.0 database persistence with JDeveloper, WebLogic Server, and Enterprise Pack for Eclipse, the main Java EE components of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g. The book also covers EJB 3.0 relationships and integrating EJB 3.0 relationships with JSF user interfaces. EJB 3.0 database persistence with some of the commonly used frameworks such as ADF Faces, AJAX, and Web Services is also discussed in the book. It uses the integrated WebLogic Server 11g in some of the chapters and the standalone WebLogic Server in other chapters. While JDeveloper is the primary Java IDE used in the book, one of the chapters is based on the Oracle Enterprise Pack for Eclipse.
By the time you reach the end of this book, you will be well-versed with developing EJB 3.0 applications using the different Java EE components of Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g.
A practical guide illustrated with examples for developing EJB 3.0 applications integrated with commonly used Java EE frameworks such as JSF, Web Services, Ajax, and ADF Faces
This is a practical, tutorial-style book that includes many examples that demonstrate how to develop EJB 3.0 database persistence applications with Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g. Every chapter starts with setting the environment for the chapter and includes an example application illustrated with figures at milestone stages.
Who this book is for
This book is aimed at EJB 3.0 application developers who want to learn about the practical use of EJB 3.0 database persistence with Oracle Fusion Middleware. Those who are already using EJB 3.0 database persistence will learn about using EJB 3.0 database persistence with Oracle Fusion Middleware 11g. The target audience is expected to have some prior knowledge about Java EE, EJBs, EJB 3.0, JSF, AJAX, web services, and XML. This book is ideal for those developers who have working knowledge of JDeveloper and WebLogic server, and wish to learn about the practical use of EJB 3.0 with Oracle Fusion Middleware.
