Java 2 Enterprise Edition is a combination of Java-related technologies including Java Server Pages, Servlets, and Enterprise Java Beans. Working together these pieces make Java a viable solution for enterprise-scale applications. "SE Using J2EE" starts with a section covering the core J2EE components and how they fit into the overall application architecture. The book then builds off this foundation to explore the practical applications of J2EE including incorporating XML into J2EE, creating wireless Web applications, network programming with J2EE, managing security and encryption, object programming with Serialization and Reflection, and programming Java applets in the enterprise. Later chapters discuss alternative approaches to solving problems in J2EE applications including debugging, decompiling and disassembly. The book finishes with a useful reference section discussing each of the core J2EE APIs.

Not a good book to recommend, Aug 5, 2023
I bought mamy books and do not have time to write many reviews. But if I was really disappointed in a book, I want to write a review. There are many junk Java books in the market. This one is not better than them. The book even does not have a good example to show what a J2EE technology is. If you have money and just want to put a book on your book shelf to look up occasionally, you can consider this book.

Not Bad Value !, Jan 29, 2023
Whilst I feel the book is excellant value for money and the Author has done a good job I would argue that some of the material in the book should have been excluded (to save a tree or two) e.g. Chapter 2,52 - 54 and included in appendix ? - but hey thats me trying to reduce the 1000 odd pages that I read !!.
Overall Comment - definately worth buying, but my advice is to allocate some "quiet" time to read and digest all the material - Not really for the beginner.

Reference for the serious J2EE developer, Nov 14, 2022
If you are searching for a reference manual that covers the basics about all the technologies involved in J2EE this is the book to buy. Keep in mind that it is impossible to cover Enterprise Java Beans,JSP,Servlets in detail in just one book. So if you're after a special thing like only EJB feel free to buy other books that cover only Enterprise Java Beans but otherwise this book is really worth its bucks simply because it introduces you to J2EE and afterwards you are able to understand what all those things are about.

Excellent coverage of topic with good level of detail, Oct 24, 2022
I bought this book looking for an introduction to some of the areas of J2EE that I'm not expert in, half expecting another huge book full of code listings and reprinted javadocs, but I've been pleasantly surprised. As of this writing, the book has the most up to date coverage of j2ee I've seen and manages to pack very good introductory material into all the subjects I've looked at. It also gives enough detail for you to be able to understand the topic enough to start writing code and sifting through the API javadocs. The writing style is generally clear with good examples, although I noticed a couple of sloppy sections, but that can be excused in a book this size.
I haven't bought a Que book before, but I'll look at them a little closer now.

Excellent book, Sep 6, 2023
This is a great follow-up to the book "Beginning Java Objects: From Concepts to Code" by Jacquie Barker.
