Enterprise Java Programming with IBM WebSphere, Second Editionby Kyle Brown, Gary Craig, Greg Hester, Russell Stinehour, W. David Pitt, Mark Weitzel, JimAmsden, Peter M. Jakab, Daniel BergForeword by Martin Fowler
Enterprise Java Programming with IBM WebSphere, Second Edition is the definitive guide tobuilding mission-critical enterprise systems with J2EE, WebSphere, and WebSphere StudioApplication Developer. Fully updated for Versions 5.x of WebSphere Application Server andWebSphere Studio Application Developer, it combines expert architectural best practices with acase study that walks you through constructing an entire system.
The authors are an extraordinary team of WebSphere insiders: developers, consultants,instructors, and IBM WebSphere development team members. Together, they offer unprecedentedinsight into the use and behavior of WebSphere's APIs in real-world environmentsandsystematic guidance for delivering systems of exceptional performance, robustness, and businessvalue.
The CD-ROMs contain trial copies of IBM WebSphere Studio Application Developer (Version 5.0.2),IBM WebSphere Application Server (Version 5.02), and DB2 Universal Database, Personal Edition(Version 8.1.2) for Microsoft Windows 2000/XP. The CD-ROMs also include source code for thecase study examples used in the book.
