The WebSphere workbook is designed to be a companion guide for the book Enterprise Java Beans, 3rd Edition (O'Reilly) by Richard Monson-Haefel. This workbook is published with the approval of O'Reilly & Associates and is produced by Richard Monson-Haefel.
The goal of this WebSphere-specific workbook, like the other vendor-specific workbooks published by Titan Books, is to provide practical, step-by-step instructions for installing and configuring the IBM WebSphere Application Server, Advanced Edition Single-server (AEs) product and deploying the example programs from the Enterprise JavaBeans book using this product.
This workbook also discusses key WebSphere-specific requirements, best practices, and the use of WebSphere-specific tools such as the WebSphere Application Assembly Tool (AAT) and the WebSphere Administration Console. Readers will learn how these tools interact, and demonstrate how to test your example programs using WebSphere's J2EE Client Container, which is accessed through the launchClient application.
This book is based on the initial release of IBM WebSphere Application Server, Single-Server Edition (AEs), version 4.0 and includes all of the EJB 1.1 examples from the Enterprise JavaBeans book. All of the examples and techniques demonstrated in this book work properly with the 4.0 release of IBM WebSphere Application Server AEs.
