====================== MANNING PRESS RELEASE ====================== Manning Publications releases Tapestry in Action Written by the creator of Tapestry Greenwich, CT, March 2004 -- Manning Publications announces the publication of the definitive guide to the Tapestry web application framework for Java, written by a recognized expert, the creator and principal architect of Tapestry, Howard M Lewis Ship. Many web development frustrations can be traced back to the underlying stateless HTTP protocol. Tapestry represents state and behavior as standard Java objects, methods, and properties. That means state management and multithreading are handled by the framework, leaving developers with just the application�s business logic. By using components, highly reusable building blocks, and creating new ones, Java web developers can create richly interactive robust applications with modest effort. Tapestry in Action contains many simple examples to show how to tackle common tasks such as form validation, application localization, client-side scripting, and synchronization between browser and app server. In later chapters the author discusses more advanced topics including creation of new components and integration with J2EE. Those familiar with Java web development as well as basic HTML and XML will quickly learn a better and easier way to build web applications. Read sample chapters and other content from Tapestry in Action at www.manning.com/lewisship. Tapestry in Action is the fourth book to be released through the Manning Early Access Program. MEAP is an innovative subscription program developed by Manning which delivers each chapter to subscribers as soon as it is finished, months before the book is actually published. The book is released chapter by chapter in electronic PDF form until the entire contents are released in ebook form. The print edition follows. About the Author � A professional software developer with fifteen years of experience and a member of the Apache Software Foundation, Howard Lewis Ship is the creator and the principal architect of Tapestry.
