Promotional Information

By 2006, Linux will become the preferred platform for J2EE execution,according to Michael Barnes, Vice President, META Group's TechnologyResearch Services.There are significant platform-dependent issues in managing and deploying aJava application in a controlled production environment, and no bookaddresses these adequately for Linux. Nearly all books on applicationdevelopment stop at writing the code. Writing the code is but a small part ofdesigning and deploying a production system. This book covers the completelifecycle.KEY COVERAGE:1) The book covers the full application development lifecycle on Linux, fromdesigning and developing an application to deploying and maintaining it. Andthe sample application developed over the course of the book is intentionallydesigned to be a useful business application. Its a real-world, database-driven,sophisticated budget application, one the authors call BudgetPro.2) The book provides comprehensive coverage of the java softwaredevelopment tools available on linux, including gcj, CVS, Eclipse, Ant, andJUnit.3) The authors assume functional literacy with Java and focus on showingsomebody who understands basic Java syntax how to design, build, deploy andmaintain an enterprise-level business applicaiton on Linux, with Java.4) Features new in JDK 1.5 are covered.
