After complete few Java EE projects which is consider small in size ( or merely said is just a Web Application ) , I realize that I need to brush up knowledge on Java EE architect/design which surely involve n-tier architect in an enterprise. I come to this book named "Core J2EE Patterns", but seems like Java EE have lot of changes different from J2EE, doubt that the book still suitable to be use in Java EE. Anyone have any idea ? or any recommendation on other books ?
I would recommand Adam Bien's Real World Java EE Patterns . I really enjoyed this book, it's a pragmatic view of how J2EE "classic" or "old-school" patterns can be rethinked to architecture a JEE application: which ones are still needed, which ones must be adapted or abandonned due to the evolution of the EE plateform.
Adam also leads a really informative blog at Adam's blog .
