Beginning Database Driven Application Development in Java EE or The Pay Pal Wars

Beginning Database-Driven Application Development in Java EE: Using GlassFish

Author: Yuli Vasiliev

Beginning Database-Driven Application Development in Java™ EE: Using GlassFish™ focuses on the open source GlassFish persistence engine. This book shows Java programmers how to develop applications utilizing relational database technologies with examples using Oracle and MySQL and the GlassFish application development framework and deployment platform all based on Java EE.

  • The book explains in detail how you can organize your Java EE solution into a multilayer architecture, placing most emphasis on how to implement the persistence and database tiers of an application.
  • Through many examples, this book shows how you can efficiently use the Java Persistence features available in the Java EE platform. Find out how you can greatly simplify the task of building the persistence layer of your Java EE application by moving some application logic into the underlying database, utilizing database views, stored programs, and triggers.
  • The book also explains how to deploy Java EE applications to GlassFish, a free, open source Java EE 5–compliant application server.
  • What you’ll learn

  • Use the GlassFish persistence layer in conjunction with GlassFish Java EE application server.
  • Organize the database and persistence tiers of a Java EE application; and utilize MySQL or Oracle database applications when building the database tier.
  • Work with EJB 3 JPA object/relational mapping features; plug JPA into Java EE transactional environment; and implement persistence with the EJB 3 EntityManager.
  • Integrate and use JSF (web–tier) using emerging GlassFish JSF Framework (Scales) and other JSFtools/frameworks.
  • Deploy applications to GlassFish Application Server.
  • Who is this book for?

    The book is appropriate for Java developers who want to learn how to develop Java EE applications interacting with a relational database via the Java Persistence API (JPA) and then deploy them to the open source GlassFish Application Server.

    The Pay Pal Wars: Battles with eBay, the Media, the Mafia, and The Rest of Planet Earth

    Author: Eric M Jackson

    When Peter Thiel and Max Levchin launched an online payment website in 1999, they hoped their service could improve the lives of millions around the globe. But when their start-up, PayPal, survived the crash only to find itself besieged by unimaginable challenges, that dream threatened to become a nightmare. PayPal's history – as told by former insider Eric Jackson – is an engrossing study of human struggle and perseverance against overwhelming odds. The entrepreneurs that Thiel and Levchin recruited to overhaul world currency markets first had to face some of the greatest trials ever thrown at a Silicon Valley company before they could make internet history. Business guru Tom Peters, author of "In Search of Excellence," called the hardcover edition of The PayPal Wars "a real page turner" that featured what he called "the best description of business strategy unfolding in a world changing at warp speed." The new paperback edition will feature updated material and even more insights on the state of internet commerce.
