Professional J2EE Programming with BEA WebLogic Server

Buy
Despite its wordy title, Professional Java 2 Enterprise Edition with BEA WebLogic Server actually is one of the better books that you can get for learning JSP-based programming with Java and Enterprise JavaBeans (EJBs). By highlighting practical matters--including setting up and running the popular BEA WebLogic Server, and benchmarking performance--the authors manage to cover the essentials of EJB-based development in a friendly and intelligent style that's ideal for any aspiring Java EJB developer.

The focus on hands-on matters begins with installation and configuration of BEA WebLogic Server, one of the more widely used platforms for running EJB applications. Most books cover EJBs more theoretically and leave deployment by the wayside. By focusing on an actual EJB product, the authors can talk about what works and what doesn't work in real applications. For examples, a single case study for a chain of pizza shops gets enhanced in stages, first with a Web front end for ordering pizzas, then with other features--including call-center support, e-mail, and XML. A section on converting an ASP version of a front end for this sample application into a JSP version is a highlight.

The latter half of this text turns into a primer on benchmarking. A benchmark (called the Grinder) measures performance, with a wide range of choices for EJBs that run on WebLogic. Different Java Virtual Machines (JVMs) and choices for implementing the applications (for example, stateful vs. stateless EJBs) are tested, and the numbers of concurrent users (up to 400) are varied. The result is a solid glimpse into the choices that give the best performance on WebLogic.

Besides covering the basics of building e-commerce applications with JSPs and EJBs, this book has a genuinely practical side. The case study is very useful, as is the plentiful performance advice. Smart, friendly, and well organized, this title strikes an excellent balance between presenting information on some of the latest Java technology and APIs, and showing just how to do it on a real EJB platform and with real code. --Richard Dragan

  • Session beans, including stateless session beans
  • Entity beans (container-managed and bean-managed persistence)
  • Converting ASPs to JSPs
  • Sending e-mail and the Java Message Service
  • Security issues for Web applications, including authentication, SSL, and authorization
  • Introduction to Wireless Markup Language (WML) and wireless applications
  • Stress-testing performance for Web applications
  • Grinder (custom benchmark for performance testing)
  • Comparative benchmark scores (comparing JVMs, stateful and stateless beans, entity beans, and clustering options for up to 400 users)

  • JSP syntax reference

This book is for professional Java developers who want to see the development of a full J2EE example and its configuration and deployment on BEA WebLogic Server. Coverage of the APIs involved, reasoning behind the architecture decisions made, and how the example is tested, is included.

Java knowledge is assumed, as is a basic tutorial understanding of the J2EE APIs. Some experience of enterprise level / web application programming is expected.

CMOS Current Amplifiers: Speed versus Nonlinearity
The development of modern integration technologies is normally driven by the needs of digital CMOS circuit design. As the sizes of integrated devices decrease, so maximum voltage ratings also rapidly decrease. Although decreased supply voltages do not restrict the design of digital circuits, it is harder to design high performance...
