Core J2EE Patterns: Best Practices and Design Strategies
Deepak Alur, John Crupi and Dan Malks
Publisher: Prentice Hall / Sun Microsystems Press
ISBN:0130648841; 1st edition (June 26, 2001)
The book originated out of the field work that the authors have been doing over the years while working with customers on various Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) projects. We tried to capture knowledge for enabling design reuse and naturally found documenting the problem/solution pairs in the form of patterns to be an ideal technique to achieve our goal. If you are new to software patterns, check out the resources section, which lists books and websites to learn from.
The first public discussion of the material was presented at JavaOne 2000 Developer Conference in a highly oversubscribed session (TS-1341) titled: Prototyping patterns for the J2EE Platform. Shortly after the presentation, the audience responded overwhelmingly and there was a need for us to publish our material for general consumption. There was a huge increase in the subscription to the public discussion list ( j2eepatterns-interest -- at here).
Prentice Hall / Sun Microsystems Press agreed to be our publisher. We then worked to prepare our final material and went through various revisions and edits.
The first issue of the book was released during JavaOne Developer Conference 2001 as a special edition in May 2001. The book went on to become a best seller at the JavaOne Conference Bookstore.
The first edition was shipped towards the end of June 2001 and was available in stores. It has since gone on to become a best seller in computers & software category.
