Hello Everybody,
I am engaged in developing systems using Core Java, Swing, JSP and Servlets. Although I have heard lot about J2EE but I am not clear about its working and practical usage in developing applications.

Above mentioned Java technologies are also based on Object Oriented Concept than what is special in J2EE? What do you think about the future and scope of J2EE? Is it able to compete with other emerging technologies?

Are these questions answered in this book in a correct and reasonable fashion?

Hoping others might also require answere of the above questions.

J2EE is an architecture blueprint that describes how you can use object-oriented Java to build enterprise-scale applications. You will find patterns which show you best practices on building interfaces, following the Model-View-Controller paradigm or maintainability. MOreover J2EE is a standard for application servers such as BEA WebLogic or JBoss, so that (at least in theory) you can move your system from one application server to another without to much compatibility issues.
Sun published a good FAQ and tutorial that should answer your questions on how J2EE ties in to your development.

I guess the book is a conceptal book with high level overview. For detail of implementation, the book may not cover much.

You may need to find some other books that discuss with detail implementation aspect.

Thanks for your fast reply.
I appreciate the information provided by you. I got good details on the FAQ of Sun's site.

Thank you once again.

Thanks for the graphical view of J2EE. It helps in easily understanding the architecture of J2EE.

Thanks for the information. If possible would you tell me some good book to start with J2EE.

Thanks once again.

If you refer to EJB, I suggest Head First EJB, Enterprise JavaBean 3rd/4th edition, and Mastering JavaBean 2nd edition.

If you refer to Servlets and JSP, I sugguest Core Servlets and JSP 2nd edition.

Hi,

If you're currently developing systems with those tools, you might not need "The Big Picture." The questions you ask are great but largely outside the scope of the book. There is one chapter that covers the main benefits of J2EE, and another that covers how to go about asking questions about whether to use J2EE.

Thanks Somkiat Puisungnoen

It was nice to get a possitive reply from you.
I visited the link and found it useful. The site www.jguru.com itself was a helpful site.

I think others also will be benifitted from this.

Mukesh.
