Note: A new draft version of this publication is now available
This IBM Redbooks publication is a hands-on guide to developing a comprehensive J2EE application, including core functions, security, Web services, and messaging. In the context of J2EE, messaging is also known as Java™ Message Service (JMS).
Novice users are thus able to experience J2EE, and advance from theoretical knowledge gained by reading introductory material to practical knowledge gained by implementing a real-life application.
Experience is one stage in gaining and applying knowledge, but there are additional stages needed to complete the knowledge acquisition cycle.
This book also helps in those stages:
Before experiencing J2EE, you learn about the base specifications and intellectual knowledge of J2EE through brief descriptions of the theory and through links to other information sources.
After experiencing J2EE you will explore advanced J2EE through previews of advanced topics and links to other information sources.
