Rather than a simple update of the existing Professional Java Server Programming book, the J2EE edition represents an evolution of the content to reflect the changing state of server-side Java development. Whereas the first edition can be seen as an introduction to Java on the server, the new edition is a more tightly integrated vision of how to combine the Java technologies to develop n-tier applications in Java based primarily around J2EE. Since the release of the first edition in the fall of ’99, probably the single most significant change in the Java server-side landscape has been the release of the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE). Although we covered many of the elements of J2EE in the first edition of the book, many things have changed.

J2EE represents a serious attempt by Sun to make Java not just a viable language, but more importantly a viable platform for enterprise development. This book is about how to use Java for enterprise development, using the J2EE runtime architecture.

Wide range of technologies including: J2EE, RMI, JDBC, JNDI, LDAP, XML, XSLT, Servlets, JSP, EJB, JMS, JavaMail, CORBA, Performance, Scalability, Unit Testing, and Debugging

Benefits and limits of the typical real-world vendor implementations of the J2EE specification

The resulting practical aspects of real-word design using the J2EE technologies

Java Examples in a Nutshell picks up where that book leaves off, providing a suite of example programs for novice Java programmers and experts alike. This book doesn’t hold your hand or supply detailed explanations of Java syntax or method calls; it simply delivers well-commented working examples that help you explore the wide range of what is possible with Java 1.1. Each chapter concludes with programming exercises that suggest further avenues for building on what you have learned.Java Examples in a Nutshell contains all of the example programs from the first edition of Java in a Nutshell, completely updated for Java 1.1. In addition, the I/O, networking, and GUI chapters have been augmented to include even more practical examples. It also expands on the examples from the second edition of Java in a Nutshell that demonstrate the new features in Java 1.1, including the new AWT event handling model, the Java Beans API, internationalization, object serialization, and reflection.In addition, this book provides never-before-published programming examples for remote method invocation, database connectivity, and security — important elements of the Java Enterprise APIs.
