5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent RMI and distributed computing wisdom
I personally have a very high opinion of the technical level2-0 out of 5 stars Cluttered and Too much unwanted material
Explanation is too cluttered and a lot of material is off topic(threads, sockets,..). On the other hand topics like the newer 1.2 Activation is not covered in detail. I felt "Java.rmi" book by Esmond Pitt to be a more useful resource.

5-0 out of 5 stars Really nice book for distributed system developer.

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the best instructional books I�ve read!
If not for its minor typo errors in the text and code, I would have given this book 5 stars.5-0 out of 5 stars Very well written
One of the best books I've purchased.4-0 out of 5 stars Simple to understand, but I prefer a bit of complexity. . .
Most of my experience in network programming comes from W. Richard Stevens' "UNIX Network Programming", where there's lots of detail in the TCP/IP protocol, and using C to implement it. At the time, the professor teaching the course tried to provide us with comparable programs in Java, but not having a good Java networking book to consult from was a drawback to those segues.Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars A good tutorial for RMI, but...
I purchased this book after doing some research into RMI via the internet to give me a more solid understanding of RMI, which it did. However, when applying my acquired knowledge to a real-world application, I found that I was missing a HUGE piece of the RMI puzzle. RMI over the INTRAnet is a wonderful thing; however, when trying to implmenent RMI over the INTERnet, and the RMI server is behind a firewall, you are in for a painful migraine. This is a show-stopper for my employers, I wish that the book mentioned something about RMI and firewalls. There are workarounds for the firewall, but they are by no means easy and you will not find them in this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars It answered most questions on RMI mailing List
I have been on RMI mailing list for half a year. This book clearly explained most of the frequently asked questions on the list. I think by reading first half the book, I understood RMI better than the half year I spent on RMI mailing list.5-0 out of 5 stars Makes it easy to understand - good teacher
I totally disagree with the negative reviews on �bergs book. I always admire authors who makes things eas�er to understand, not making them seem more intelligent than they really are. A good teacher is one who can make things understandable, not the opposite. If you have read 3-5 RMI books before this one you may get disappointed as some of the other reviewers. It's an excellent intoduction to RMI, but don't expect to find some magical new/hidden, features of RMI here. Maybe the titleshould have instead been "An Introduction to RMI with Lots of Good Explanations." If you need an introduction to RMI, where you don't have to read a lot "between the lines", then this book is a good choice. I've stopped searching the internet for explanations about RMI after I got this book. There are lot's of hello world RMI introductions out there on the web, but �bergs book goes far beyond them all. A good introduction. ... Read more

Editorial Review

The Java Database Connectivity classes (JDBC) sensibly provide aninterface between a platform-independent programming language (Java) and astandardized database language (Structured Query Language, or SQL). Pretty muchevery Java program that's involved in transactions or other business operationsconnects to a database through JDBC; so, familiarity with the JDBC classes canmagnify your other Java skills.

2-0 out of 5 stars More sales pitch than substance

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book on JDBC and multitier development
The text covers JDBC with enough depth, without burdening the reader with useless details available in any reference (in fact the reference is attached in an appendix, so there is no need to go looking online). Unlike other books it doesn't bore the reader with introduction to obvious concepts and examples. I highly recommend this for experienced professionals who need to understand and start using JDBC.2-0 out of 5 stars A Book without a Country
This book starts strong, clearly elucidating the simple mechanics behind opening database connections and controling content updates through sql statements.It quickly drifts into something of a rambling however as the author attempts to cover too much ground in too short a span.Reese jumps from a slow introduction to JDBC and a gentle explanation of how to integrate database calls into simple applications to a mess of complex design patterns and ugly (I mean UGLY... where are his editors) code almost completely bereft of any helpful comments.Read more

After looking at all the JINI books available except the O'Reilly one, I found this book to be best....by far!5-0 out of 5 stars Lots of material and code
I used this book in parallell with other books.5-0 out of 5 stars A complete, detailed, well-written book
Mr. Li starts out with a section focusing on advanced RMI and CORBA, and how they relate to Jini. The CORBA section includes examples for building a Java client/server using the ORB that comes with the JDK, as well as using a C client on Linux with the free ORBit ORB. An excellent overview of CORBA for people who have never used it or simply haven't used it with Java. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Good, verbose
I started reading this book without knowing anything about RMI.By the time I was done, I started getting an idea what RMI is all about.The examples are good and the book is worth atleast two readings. In the first reading, what is RMI etc. is put in place. In the second reading one may want to place emphasis on what goes into the stubs and skeletons etc. 5-0 out of 5 stars A Good overview of RMI
I thought that this book was a good overview of Java RMI. Athough I do have to agree with the other reviewers, this book is a bit wordy. I do the fact that code is repeated throght the text. This prevents having to lookfor it in previous chapters. Worth buying if your new to Java and RMI.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good overview of RMI but very padded.
I thought this book was a pretty good intro and overview of RMI.I walked away with a pretty solid understanding of RMI, but most of this could have been accomplished in 100 rather than ~300 pages.It almost seemed like theauthor needed to add filler, so 100 pages of reference was added and lotsof sample code, repeated twice everytime. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Outdated
Upon opening this book I was excited. Until I try to work with the examples and found that the examples were based on jini 1.0.1-0 out of 5 stars Are we talking about the same technology?!?
Nice concept but the code refers to packages, interfaces and classes that don't exist.Not deprecated, just not there to begin with.And they're different enough that it really has no relevance to the actual technology.Very disappointed.

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent virtual read, but fails a little in practicalities
Javaspaces is a promising technology for solving difficult problemsrelatively easily. This book does what it says, it lays out the sciencebehind Javaspaces clearly and concisely with good use cases, patterns andsuggestions. The author is very clear and the book flows very well. Uponreading the book I was champing at the bit to experiment with JavaSpaces.It really is a super read.The problem is, however, that Javaspaces is astill-emerging technology. The simplicity and clarity that is documented inthe book, does not directly tie over to the actual using of Javaspaces. Thecurrent tools are raw and unwieldy, and there are many difficulties tryingto actual start a java space up. Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars So disappointed. The book has no exampels
I bought this book because of its high rating among RMI developers. I was disappointed, becuase the book doesn't contain a single comprehensive example. I found it hard to learn without example.

5-0 out of 5 stars The most advanced book on java RMI
This is the best and the most advanced book on java rmi PERIOD.IMO this should be your second book on rmi.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best book on RMI
This is the best book on RMI that I have come across and I personally own 4 RMI books (about 10 if you count books that aren't solely on RMI). Contrary to a previous reviewer, this is NOT a beginners book. Beginners should get a more verbose RMI tutorial-like book. This is an advanced reference with very few examples, but it covers topics that you just can't find anywhere else, and furthermore, presents the topics in a detailed, to the point, lucid manner.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best practical book for distributed systems (that I could find)
I got this book because I have been a fan of Garg's Elements of Distributed Computing ever since I first read it.Concurrent and Distributed Computing in Java seems to be really great buy. It has a very strong theoretical foundation, but the emphasis seems to be on writing distributed programs and getting them to work. If you are a theory lover I wouldnt recommend ths book, but if you like implementing stuff then you will definitely like this book. The range of topics covered is quite comprehensive given the size of the book.

I have read this book and find that it is a good book if you want to get started with Web services on BEA Weblogic workshop.

2-0 out of 5 stars At the title I was impressed
But after digging into the content I was forced to re-evaluate my first impression.I looked to this book to guide me through numerous pieces and choices of server load balancing on a fair but balanced agenda.What I found was far too much information that was simply digested and reformatted from vendor and free areas.
3-0 out of 5 stars Needs more examples
This book gives an organized but purely descriptive overview of server load balancing and should be helpful to anyone who is approaching the subject for the first time but does not require quantitative assessments of the different methods for doing server load balancing. It is written for the network administrator, but anyone, including network managers should find it helpful. Network engineers may find the treatment too qualitative, but it could be supplemented by more rigorous material if needed.
1-0 out of 5 stars Disapointing Altogether

One of the best books I have read. It goes through the process of creating and Enterprise Application Server. This is not a J2EE application developer book; it is a book that can help you to write your own application server.

3-0 out of 5 stars It's okay, I guess
I'm fairly new to java (less than 1 year) and I thought, given what the other reviewers had to say, that this book would have been a more impressive work, especially to a newbie like me.I worked through the whole book and was not very impressed.3-0 out of 5 stars Interesting but of little real world use
Would you believe that there is a Java Server book that has almost nothing to do with Servlets, JSPs, and Enterprise JavaBeans? If you are an advanced Java programmer and have felt a need to write your own application server then this may be the book for you. The author starts off with a well written discussion of class loaders and then goes on to show how to design your own application server using your own class loader. For most developers this may be interesting but of little real value. The thread chapters will provide little new information for anyone who has studied for the SCJP. The next few chapters discuss RMI, sockets, persistence, serialization and other issues that are required for the application server that the author is developing throughout the book. Servlets are briefly discussed but mostly on how they can be used to replace sockets and RMI within the application server framework. This is followed by a discussion of modeling business objects that seems somewhat out of place. The middleware section is very interesting and covers a wide array of topics from JMS to CORBA. The JNI section will probably not be used by many Java developers. Although the book is interesting I am left with the feeling that the author has missed the point. Why would a team of developers spend tens of thousands of dollars developing a service framework when inexpensive and robust application servers are readily available on the market? ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Greatly eases Jini development
For several years, Sun has promoted Jini as a means of developing Java-based distributed computing systems. As a practical matter, these systems are often mobile, and hence wireless. Think perhaps of the increasingly powerful and ubiquitous cellphones, PDAs and laptops. Less familiar to the public, but even more pervasive, are products using embedded microprocessors like cars and home appliances. Typically, most distributed systems have less memory and power than conventional computers, and their network connections may be intermittent. Developing applications to run under these conditions is tough, and Jini tries to make it practical. But in the last two years the pace of Jini development seems to have slowed. A rival open source approach, JXTA, has quickly grown and captured a lot of mindshare amongst developers. Its proponents say that it is far easier to learn and use. Naturally, Jini enthusiasts strongly disagree.Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Total Trash
Total trash. This is one of those books where the publisher has packed in as many pages as possible to make it seem impressive. It is completely unreadable and not even useful as a reference book.

2-0 out of 5 stars Only "Good Overview" of J2EE.
The title of the book is impressive and is certain to fool many a serious developer hopeful of "Building" J2EE systems with the help of this book. It will be painful to find out that this books gives only aoverview of the technologies that comprise J2EE.5-0 out of 5 stars Best complete J2EE book I found
I had been looking for a book that gave me most of the information I needed for J2EE and server side coding and I found it in this book. No other book that I could find provided me with all of the material I needed for server side Java. The material is thorough and it is loaded with examples that use BEA weblogic and Oracle. There are some topics that I can do without like DCOM and much of the CORBA chapters. Although if you really want the complete picture of other technologies you might find that information interesting too. I'd rank it a 4.5, but Ill give them the extra half point for the effort. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars A very good book about JXTA
According to the title, JXTA in a nutshell teaches how to write JXTA application in a short time.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book!
The book explains in very clear language almost every aspect of JXTA P2P programming and gives a good overview of all common JXTA concepts (Pipes, advertisements, discovery, peergroups). You'll learn how to design, implement, test and deploy your JXTA P2P programs. The book does a great job by identifying and providing solutions to common P2P pitfalls. I recommend this book to every programmer out there. If you are serious about writing JXTA programs this is the book to get.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must read if you want to learn about JXTA
I learned many new things about JXTA reading this book. Overall, I would say that this is the best JXTA coverage I've seen in any book. So, if you're looking for a JXTA book I believe you'll be extremely pleased with this book.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent practical examples
The author provides excellent examples and the source is available. I like the fact that this is a "simple" book. So many today are thick, bulky paperweights with poor examples or confusing theory. This book is the opposite. I could easily take the lessons and implement them within a few hours.1-0 out of 5 stars too much source code
too much source code and javadoc (one third of the book!). covers many areas but superficially

4-0 out of 5 stars Very practical
While this book contains excellent practical, real world examples, it is a little light-on in some aspects. Perhaps some of the API documentation at the rear could be sacrificed for further discussion of design issues. It is more readable than Reese's Database Programming with JDBC and Java, but a little frustrating in that the excellent code examples are not available for download or on CD.Otherwise excellent for those who need to get to work. ...
