<pre>Author/s : Inderjeet Singh, Mark Johnson, Beth Stearns Publisher : Addison-Wesley Category :J2EE and Distributed Computing Review by : Ajith Kallambella Rating : 6 horseshoes</pre> A great appetizer that will leave you hungry for more! Based on the well known Java Blueprints and Java Petstore application published by Sun, this book offers a quick tour of key technologies supported by J2EE platform such as Servlets, JSP, EJB, and JDBC API. Different aspects of a typical system development exercise are introduced using the sample application as a prototype. It attempts to cover all of the typical J2EE components and facilities such as connector architecture, internationalization, localization, packaging and deployment, security, issues with database access and design guidelines for a successful J2EE initiative. No doubt, this book can be an excellent companion for those considering a transition to J2EE platform, but unfortunately, the content is not deep enough to help someone develop an actual J2EE application. They should have added "Introduction to" in the beginning of the title. The treatment of the topics is at best academic and is sure to disappoint any developer who is looking for some practical advice. The design strategies and architectural guidelines presented are superficial and inadequate to confront the challenges faced in real life application scenarios. Having included several individuals from the actual J2EE Blue Prints team from Sun, they could have done a better job than simply trying to paraphrase the Blue Prints.
