Java Enterprise in a Nutshell
Author: Flanagan, Farley, Crawford & Magnusson
Next comes Java's Remote Method Invocation (RMI) classes for calling remote code. Then it's on to using Java IDL and CORBA basics. A chapter on Java servlets will get you started delivering dynamically generated HTML using Java on Web servers, including useful material on cookies and session management. After coverage of the Java Naming and Directory Interface (JNDI) comes a solid exploration of EJBs with material on both session and entity beans. Specifics here include home and remote interfaces, EJB containers, stateless vs. stateful session beans, and entity beans for accessing corporate databases.
Overall, this handy and readable guide to the latest in Java APIs can be truly invaluable to the developer bringing Java to the corporate enterprise for the first time. --Richard Dragan
