If you want exposure to the new open source lightweight SOA-driven Apache Beehive framework project, then pick up Pro Apache Beehive, the first book on this MVC Web framework, which is increasingly gaining interest in the Eclipse community through Eclipse Pollinate. Author Kunal Mittal addresses specific Beehive topics such as page flows, controls, JSR 181 web services, XMLBeans and more.
This book proceeds to describe how these technologies are used in WebLogic Workshop, and how other IDEs are extending support for these technologies. Mittal also compares PageFlows in Workshop to the Standard.
Welcome to Pro Apache Beehive. SOA and Web Services are finally coming to the forefront of
the IT industry. Most companies, large and small, are talking about these technologies and
planning a course to adopt them. And J2EE development is still on the front lines for large,
The Apache Beehive project introduces several new technologies that simplify J2EE development
as well as make your applications more service oriented. Beehive provides a layer of
technologies that build on the annotations that were introduced in Java 1.5. (Think of annotations
as deployment descriptors but in your code instead.)
NetUI, JSR 181, Web Services, and Controls in Apache Beehive allow you to quickly build
robust, scalable, service-oriented J2EE applications. Combined with the power of XMLBeans,
which is a Java-XML binding technology, this project is gaining a lot of momentum.
In this book, we’ll show you how to build applications using these technologies. Be prepared
to get down and dirty with some code.
