News: Eclipse Web Tools Platform Book Released

  1. Eclipse Web Tools Platform Book Released (2 messages)

    The Eclipse Web Tools Platform (WTP) seamlessly integrates all the tools today's Java Web developer needs. WTP is both an unprecedented Open Source resource for working developers and a powerful foundation for state-of-the-art commercial products. Eclipse Web Tools Platform offers in-depth descriptions of every tool included in WTP, introducing powerful capabilities never before available in Eclipse. The authors cover the entire Web development process - from defining Web application architectures and development processes through testing and beyond. And if you're seeking to extend WTP, this book provides an introduction to the platform's rich APIs. The book also:
    • Presents step-by-step coverage of developing persistence, business logic, and presentation tiers with WTP and Java
    • Introduces best practices for multiple styles of Web and Java EE development
    • Demonstrates JDBC database access and configuration
    • Shows how to configure application servers for use with WTP
    • Walks through creating Web service application interfaces
    • Covers automated testing with JUnit and Cactus, and automated builds utilizing Ant, Maven, and CruiseControl
    • Introduces testing and profiling Web applications with the Eclipse Test and Performance Tools Platform (TPTP) project
    • Describes how to extend WTP with new servers, file types, and WSDL extensions
    This book is an invaluable resource for every Eclipse and enterprise Java Web developer: both those who use Eclipse to build other Web applications, and those who build eclipse technologies into their own products. Visit the book Web site at http://www.eclipsewtp.org
  2. It is nice to see this book out! Does anyone know what version of WTP it covers? ~~ Kito D. Mann - Author, JavaServer Faces in Action http://www.virtua.com - JSF/Java EE consulting, training, and mentoring http://www.JSFCentral.com - JavaServer Faces FAQ, news, and info
  3. We managed to get as current as WTP 1.5.2. Unfortunately there's a good lag between handing off a manuscript and having it published. However, you should easily be able to read the book while using WTP 2.0 - and if you do, please let me know of any differences you find (feedback at eclipsewtp dot org). If I can contain the list of differences I'll create a WTP 2.0 update page on the book Web site (http://www.eclipsewtp.org). Lawrence
