Wrox specializes in books written by programmers, for programmers. Professional Java Server Programming, a volume on developing Java-based Web applications, is no different. All the 12 authors are developers and consultants--including some who've been part of Sun's own Java team.

The Web is becoming more and more a way of delivering applications rather than just static Web pages. Java is becoming more and more popular as a tool for building Web applications, thanks to Java servlets and Java Server Pages. Professional Java Server Programming is a big book full of code samples and real-world experience.

Starting with a grounding in Web application development and technologies, the book introduces the various concepts of using Java to deliver Web content--as well as helping to give you the tools you need to work around the limitations of Web servers and Web browsers. You'll also learn how to develop complex database-driven applications--and how to work faster. Since this is a book on the cutting edge of Java development, you'll also find sections on using Java with XML documents and LAP directory servers, as well as Enterprise Java Beans. There's even a good examination of the next generation of Java technologies--Jini and JavaSpaces--with a look at how these can be used in Web applications.

This is a superb and extremely practical book. If you're building Java-based Web server applications, this is a book you need to have next to your terminal, if only for the 300 pages of reference material in the appendices! --Simon Bisson, amazon.co.uk

Book Description
An overview of the new server-side Java platform - Java 2 Enterprise Edition - as it relates to building n-tier web applications.
It covers the building blocks (Servlets, JSP, EJB, JDBC, RMI, JNDI, CORBA) then goes into special design considerations for server side programming, (including resource pooling and component based design) before finally discussing future design possibilities opened up by Jini and JavaSpaces technology.

In a world where, increasingly, corporate IT development is Web application development - ASP, PHP, CGI and ISAPI are all viable options.
Now, so is the Java 2 Platform Enterprise Edition, and that's good news because server-side Java is portable across Windows, Linux, UNIX and MacOS and compatible with a wide range of Web Servers (IIS, Apache, Netscape Enterprise Server) and Application Servers from Sun, IBM and others.

Java provides technologies to allow for server side processing (servlets), dynamic page content generation (servlets, beans) and dynamic presentation (JavaServer Pages).
Java 2 Enterprise Edition - announced by Sun in June 1999 - makes Java an entire platform, not just another language.

With these comprehensive, platform independent Java class libraries, developed with industry-wide input, you can join together the disparate pieces of your business - data, applications and platforms - to form a coherent whole.

This is the first book that seriously covers the Java 2 platform Enterprise Edition (J2EE).

5 out of 5 stars Excellent book to get started on server-side programming.
Reviewer: ravindra.mathur@gte.net from Colorado      November 19, 1999
This books gives you a good overview of the different Java technologies on the server-side. Learn all the basics and buzz words of java technology. Get an advanced book if you want to master any of them.

3 out of 5 stars Good Book, too abroad though...
Reviewer: Mario de Sa Vera (desaveram@coned.com) from New York City      October 29, 1999
I have just bought this book and by reading the first chapters it seems to me that it's an overwhelmming amount of information. If you want to find yourself on JAVA Server Programming it will be useful but be careful not to loose the focus.

5 out of 5 stars One of the best Java book I've ever had
Reviewer: Igor M. from Los Angeles, CA      October 27, 1999
If you want to know about Java technology from experts, you should have this book. The only problem with this book that it is huge and heavy. I'd prefer to have 2 books instead of 1, but I don't think it's so important.

5 out of 5 stars Good one for overview
Reviewer: kiran from Orlando,FL,USA      October 20, 1999
This is as far as it can get right now. But, they tried to cover all the topics and hence this overview of all the topics. Ofcourse the examples are very handy!!

5 out of 5 stars Great well-rounded book!
Reviewer: Ara Jerahian from Palo Alto, California      October 18, 1999
This book is great as an introduction to the different Java technologies available for website development, like JSP, Servlets, EJB, etc. Also covers XML and describes how all these fit together. It's well written with excellent examples.

5 out of 5 stars So far this is as good as it gets
Reviewer: A reader from Pacific Northwest      October 7, 1999
I will admit I am a rookie Java programmer but I always go beyond the level I am currently on. Even being a rookie I study this book and read sections several times. This gives me an advantage over other programmers who do not push themselves beyond their confort level. I do not understand everything I read but I read it over and over and it finally sticks. Thanks for introducing me to a level beyond where I am currently at! Please, please keep up the good writing.

5 out of 5 stars Touch on some important concepts
Reviewer: slok (slok00@yahoo.com) from Singapore      October 6, 1999
I bought this book only after I have done some development on servlets.

This book provides an insight into Database Connection pooling and some other design issues.

Really good to have by your side.

4 out of 5 stars Good one
Reviewer: A reader from California      September 25, 1999
It is a good book. Directly writing how to get connected to a database and obtain the resultset, which is a most popularly used application, made my life easier especially because my live, tightly scheduled project was totally based on retrieving data.
