From the Back Cover
"Floyd Marinescu has done a great job of documenting and organizing a cornucopia of EJB design strategies into one concise and balanced book. I recommend this book to all EJB developers."
–Richard Monson-Haefel, author of Enterprise JavaBeans, Third Edition (O’Reilly 2001)

The job of the EJB developer is constantly challenging, making the task of designing maintainable and scalable systems difficult without a clear set of best practices to follow. It is with this in mind that Floyd Marinescu worked with thousands of J2EE professionals at J2EE community to build a library of design patterns, strategies, and best practices for EJB design and development.

EJB Design Patterns goes beyond high-level design patterns into critical EJB-specific implementation issues, illustrated with source code. The book contains a catalog of twenty advanced EJB patterns; it also provides strategies for applying the patterns, best practices for J2EE development, and useful EJB tips and techniques.

Marinescu also explores:

  • Architectural, transaction, concurrency, client-side, and primary key generation patterns
  • Build-system best practices using Ant
  • JUnit testing strategies
  • How to use Java Data Objects (JDO) with EJB as an alternative to entity beans

This book contains over 30 organizational patterns and antipatterns.  While it has long been observed that organization can have a big influence on the success of software, recent trends make this influence even more important.  When software architectures are shared across organizations or across products, many more organizations need to cooperate to achieve success.  The books presents five organizational principles that continually reappear as critical to software architecture success: Vision, Rhythm, Anticipation, Partnering and Simplification.  The principles are illustrated with patterns, antipatterns and case studies.


Book Description

Learn proven, real-world techniques for specifying software requirements with this practical reference. It details 30 requirement "patterns" offering realistic examples for situation-specific guidance for building effective software requirements. Each pattern explains what a requirement needs to convey, offers potential questions to ask, points out potential pitfalls, suggests extra requirements, and other advice. This book also provides guidance on how to write other kinds of information that belong in a requirements specification, such as assumptions, a glossary, and document history and references, and how to structure a requirements specification. A disturbing proportion of computer systems are judged to be inadequate; many are not even delivered; more are late or over budget. Studies consistently show one of the single biggest causes is poorly defined requirements: not properly defining what a system is for and what it's supposed to do. Even a modest contribution to improving requirements offers the prospect of saving businesses part of a large sum of wasted investment. This guide emphasizes this important requirement need--determining what a software system needs to do before spending time on development. Expertly written, this book details solutions that have worked in the past, with guidance for modifying patterns to fit individual needs--giving developers the valuable advice they need for building effective software requirements
