About the book:

For the intermediate to advanced Java developer, Java Enterprise in a Nutshell shows how to work with all of today's relevant Java APIs. Plus, it's a top-notch reference to all enterprise classes. Part tutorial and part reference work you can use everyday at your desk, this title is a worthwhile resource for any Java developer building Web or enterprise software.

The practical, succinct focus here on actual Java enterprise APIs helps distinguish this text from the pack. Early sections provide short, clear examples along with just enough background to help you use APIs like JDBC, servlets and JSPs, EJBs and others. Coverage of Java's ability to interface with legacy CORBA systems is just excellent here, with a full tour of Java IDL, CORBA services and Remote Method Invocation (RMI). Typically, readers will be familiar with some J2EE APIs and not others. This book can help fill in the gaps.

Updated with the latest standards from Sun including JDBC 3.0, Servlet 2.3 and EJB 2.0, this is an essential primer of today's high-end (and high-paying) Java. The basic presentation of servlets/JSP and EJBs (among the most important APIs for current Java Web development) are concise and nicely digestible. We also liked the chapter on JMS for messaging (also a hotbed of Java job activity).

The second half of this text lists every J2EE class along with methods and properties in a very valuable reference making good use of two-toned shading for easy access. Entries are organised by package name. (One small oversight here is that an index of cross-listed packages, classes and methods omits page numbers.)

Overall, this reference material will serve as truly indispensable for any working Java programmer. The second edition of Java Enterprise in a Nutshell is a fully up-to-date tutorial and reference that lives up to the standards of O'Reilly's Nutshell series. Both thorough and concise, it's a handy resource for anyone who works with the hundreds and thousands of Java enterprise APIs on a regular basis. --Richard Dragan
