Java EE 6
This book concentrates on Java EE 6 and highlights the new features of this release. It explores the innovations of this new version, and examines the various specifications and how to assemble them to develop applications. Java EE 6 consists of nearly 30 specifications and is an important milestone for the enterprise layer (EJB 3.1, JPA 2.0), for the web tier (Servlet 3.0, JSF 2.0), and for interoperability (SOAP web services and RESTful services). This book covers a broad part of the Java EE 6 specifications and uses the JDK 1.6 and some well-known design patterns, as well as the GlassFish application server, the Derby database, JUnit, and Maven. It is abundantly illustrated with UML diagrams, Java code, and screenshots.

Update : the book has been published end of June 2013 I have been quiet on my blog lately but there was a reason: I was writing a Beginning Java EE 7 book for APress. I am using the past tense because I’ve finished writing it. I’ve gently started in November 2012 and accelerated the writing pace as I was following the updates of the […]

If I haven’t blogged for a long time, that’s because I was busy writing a book about Java EE 6. As some of you already know, I’m expert member on various JSRs, including Java EE 6. Last year I have been approached by Apress who proposed me to write a book about Java EE 6 in the From Novice to Professional collection. At first I wasn’t sure because I’ve already written a book and know the workload that it represents. But I’ve been a reader of Apress books for a long time, an appreciate them. I was finally convinced to participate to such quality books. So here it is : Beginning Java™ EE 6 Platform with GlassFish™ 3: From Novice to Professional. Well, actually the book is gone to printing and will be published end of May. So stay tune, and be ready to buy a copy of it (or an ebook version). The book focuses on the novelties of Java EE 6 and covers most of the specifications. 450 pages structured as follow : Chapter 1 briefly presents Java EE 6 essentials and the tools used throughout the book (JDK, Maven, JUnit, Derby and GlassFish v3). The persistent tier is described from Chapter 2 to Chapter 5 and focuses on JPA 2.0. After a general overview with some hands-on examples (Chapter 2), Chapter 3 delves into the object-relational mapping (mapping attributes, relationships and inheritance). Chapter 4 shows you how […]
In today’s business world, applications need to access data, apply business logic, add presentation layers, and communicate with external systems. That’s what companies are trying to achieve while minimizing costs, using standard and robust technologies that can handle heavy loads. If that’s your case, you have the right book in your hands.
Java Enterprise Edition appeared at the end of the 1990s and brought to the Java language a robust software platform for enterprise development. Challenged at each new version, badly understood or misused, overengineered, and competing with open source frameworks, J2EE was seen as a heavyweight technology. Java EE benefited from these criticisms to improve and is today focused on simplicity.
