Building Java Enterprise Applications Building Java Enterprise Applications Vol 1: Architecture Architecture by Brett McLaughlin

What are the key decisions and tradeoffs you face as you design and develop enterprise applications? How do you build the back end so that it not only handles your current needs but is flexible enough to allow your system to evolve as your needs expand? This text aims to answer these questions and many more, it is part of an advanced 3-volume guide to building complex Java Enterprise Applications from the ground up that addresses design issues along the way. These practical books take a step back from detailed examination of the APIs and focus on the entire picture, so you can put the pieces together and build something that works. The volume explores the infrastructure issues so important to good application design. It isn't just a book about doing things with Entity Beens, JDBC and JMS and JNDI. It takes you step by step through building the back end, designing the data store so that it gives you convenient access to the data your application needs; designing a directory; and figuring out how to handle security and where to store the security credentials you need. It also shows how to build the entity bean layer that makes information available to the rest of the application.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
