Patterns do remain the same, but some of the patterns seem to have been implemented by frameworks such as spring, the controllers for instance.. do we still need to write controllers?...

http://www.corej2eepatterns.com/

I rather not read something that has no little value to me, id rather read something else... I have read some people are still reading this, so thought perhaps its relevant...?

I have been using Java for a while (about 12-18 months), and wanted to know if the Core J2EE book was still relevant, and if i should read it?

All,

Overall a briliant book. Have been following it since August 2011, with MEAP.

Only thing missing in my opinion was perhaps an example of using it with rabbitMQ, which seems to be getting quite popular.

I created somthing similar a while ago, it wasnt very nice coding.. but it was something fun to do.

ANyway have you looked at bill chen formula, that is very easy to convert into an algorithm. Il also try and find the site i used, it was a points scale basically, which would tell me whether i should raise or fold..etc..etc.. not sire if that what your lookign for.

Im looking at implementing a game for tablets/mobiles in Java and Spring, and am considering various solutions for the gaming server side of things.

The game basically loops through a set of states, which trigger message events to be sent to clients. Message sending is done via another API. So the event listener delegates to the message sender on a particular event.

Another listener handles the incoming parts, but im only concerned with sending raising events on state changes.

I have looked at JMS and Spring events, i like spring events as they are neat and tidy, however not sure how they would cope on a server - docs seem to suggest its good for basic stuff.. is my requiremnt basic tho?.. not much exp with spring events.

JMS seems large and bulky and since im only listening to internal events most of the time..

Have to also consider if things changed.. hummm

Hi,

Thanks for the reply...

I have started doing TDD in the last few weeks, I still find it difficult, but I know it will help in the end. As for my review on growing objects by tdd, i loved the first part.. but the example in the book wasnt as helpful, but still a good book.

Its funny you should mention the PPP book, i ordered that last week, and started reading it...

I do love what I do, I want to be good at what i do, i have so many books at home, that I cant wait to start... But at times i just feel, im not very good, and im never happy with what i write, i see room for improvment constantly, everytime i cme back to something i have written, i can see things i should change, could do better.. then i wonder why didnt i see this before.

I have been working with Java a few years now, but i dont feel like im any good... I have read books such as effective Java(very good book), read some of growing objects by tdd (was okay), read clean code(good book)... read various spring, hibernate books.. am currnetly reading agile design practises and grounded java developer...

But the thing im finding is that im never happy with the code i write... I can never say im happy with this, i want my code to be better... and right now i really struggle with reading other peoples code.... legacy systems... any tips?... or help?

How can i become better?

Ps.. its a little random question i know... but im jsut throwing this out there, maybe someone has a golden nugget which may help... or maybe im just not cut out to be a developer...!

Hi all,

thanks a lot, i have ordered clean code, applying UML. One final text i need is something on transactions (distributed, 2/3 phase commits..etc), i read tutorials but is there a definite text on transaction processing in java, Have seen Java transaction processing in Java but it states J2EE...hummm

Hi,

I started working the java fields now for about 18 months (spring, hibernate), and have started looking at improving my knowledge in areas such as writing cleaner code, core java apis etc etc

I was recently recommended Core j2ee patterns and fowlers enterprise pattern books, I went to amazon to order them and read comments from other readers regaridng its date and it maybe outdated...

Are they still worth reading? there is a lot out there and i really want to focus on a few good solild books,
