Practical JBoss Seam® Web 2.0 Projects, written by renowned author and enterprise Java practitioner Jim Farley, is a practical, projects-based book on this groundbreaking open source lightweight JSF-EJB3 framework. It uses practical application scenarios to demonstrate the nature of the JBoss Seam framework, its efficacy, and its limitations. A series of scenarios and real-world case studies offer valuable insight into the new practices of JBoss Seam Web 2.0 development. Each demonstrates a specific element of the framework, from a PayPal-like web application project to designing rich web user interfaces using Seam and Ajax.
Part of Packt’s Beginner’s Guide series, each chapter contains practical examples with step-by-step instructions and plenty of screenshots to guide you through the implementation of JBoss ESB. This book is intended for Java programmers although you don’t need previous experience with middleware such as application servers or ESBs.
There's nothing ordinary about JBoss. What began as an open source EJB container project six years ago has become a fully certified J2EE 1.4 application server with the largest market share, competitive with proprietary Java application servers in features and quality. And with its dynamic architecture, JBoss isn't just a J2EE server. You can alter the services to make J2EE work the way you want, or even throw J2EE away completely. After more than a million downloads, many JBoss users are no longer trying it out on internal test boxes, but rolling it out on production machines. JBoss: A Developer's Notebook takes you on a complete tour of JBoss in a very unique way: rather than long discussions, you will find code--lots of code. In fact, the book is a collection of hands-on labs that take you through the critical JBoss features step-by-step. You don't just read about JBoss, you learn it through direct practical application. That includes exploring the server's many configurations: from bare features for simple applications, to the lightweight J2EE configuration, to everything JBoss has in store-including Hibernate and Tomcat. JBoss: A Developer's Notebook also introduces the management console, the web services messaging features, enhanced monitoring capabilities, and shows you how to improve performance. At the end of each lab, you'll find a section called "What about..." that anticipates and answers likely follow-up questions, along with a section that points you to articles and other resources if you need more information. JBoss is truly an extraordinary application server. And we have an extraordinary way for you to learn it.
Consisting of a number of well-known open source products, JBoss is more a family of interrelated services than a single monolithic application. But, as with any tool that's as feature-rich as JBoss, there are number of pitfalls and complexities, too. Most developers struggle with the same issues when deploying J2EE applications on JBoss: they have trouble getting the many J2EE and JBoss deployment descriptors to work together; they have difficulty finding out how to get started; their projects don't have a packaging and deployment strategy that grows with the application; or, they find the Class Loaders confusing and don't know how to use them, which can cause problems. JBoss at Work: A Practical Guide helps developers overcome these challenges. As you work through the book, you'll build a project using extensive code examples. You'll delve into all the major facets of J2EE application deployment on JBoss, including JSPs, Servlets, EJBs, JMS, JNDI, web services, JavaMail, JDBC, and Hibernate. With the help of this book, you'll: Implement a full J2EE application and deploy it on JBoss Discover how to use the latest features of JBoss 4 and J2EE 1.4, including J2EE-compliant web services Master J2EE application deployment on JBoss with EARs, WARs, and EJB JARs Understand the core J2EE deployment descriptors and how they integrate with JBoss-specific descriptors Base your security strategy on JAAS Written for Java developers who want to use JBoss on their projects, the book covers the gamut of deploying J2EE technologies on JBoss, providing a brief survey of each subject aimed at the working professional with limited time. If you're one of the legions of developers who have decided to give JBoss a try, then JBoss at Work: A Practical Guide is your next logical purchase. It'll show you in plain language how to use the fastest growing open source tool in the industry today. If you've worked with JBoss before, this book will get you up to speed on JBoss 4, JBoss WS (web services), and Hibernate 3.
The Enterprise JavaTM platform, Java EE 6, has gotten a facelift ... JavaServerTM Faces (JSFTM) 2, is a big part of what's new in Java EE 6! JSF 2, a significant upgrade from JSF 1.2, includes Facelets and integration/use options with a variety of web frameworks, including the popular JBoss® Seam and even the Spring Framework. Beginning JSFTM 2 APIs and JBoss® Seam gets you up to speed with the JSF 2.x API features and how they're implemented using the latest Seam web framework. This quick–start tutorial is the fastest way to get started on JSF 2, Facelets, and Seam, and with it you'll take the most useful features in the frameworks and apply them using best practices. You'll learn to create and enhance an eShop using practical methods, and can re-purpose the template for your own personal and professional projects.
