The JavaTM Pet Store Demo is a sample application from the Java Enterprise BluePrints program at Java Software, Sun Microsystems. It demonstrates how to use the capabilities of the JavaTM 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition ("J2EETM") 1.3 platform to develop flexible, scalable, cross-platform enterprise applications.
The Java Pet Store Demo comes with full source code and documentation, which illustrate the typical design decisions and tradeoffs a developer makes when building an enterprise application. The demo shows how to use JavaServer PagesTM ("JSPTM"), JavaTM Servlet, Enterprise JavaBeansTM ("EJBTM"), and JavaTM Message Service ("JMS") technologies. It also uses new technologies in the J2EE 1.3 platform, which you can experiment with and learn how to use in your own enterprise solutions.
With real, working code illustrating the Java BluePrints guidelines, the Java Pet Store Demo reduces the learning curve of the J2EE 1.3 platform, enabling you to deliver complete end-to-end solutions with faster time-to-market.
