Hi guys!
I currently was hired as a software developer in a company focusing on developing B2B applications. I have no previous experience in B2B but the company said they will train me. Can you guys suggest a headstart book on B2B? I just want to do some self-study so that it would be easier for me to learn. Thanks a lot!!!

Gee - are there any more openings?

Seriously, though - one of the most important issues you'll deal with is how to create an application that's scalable. You're going to learn lots about Java and J2EE and XML and whatever tools your company gives you. One thing you probably *won't* get a chance to do is to step back and reflect on performance and architectural issues.

So I'd strongly urge you to consider getting a book like Tanenbaum's "Computer Networks":

Computer Networks: 4th Ed

Read as much as you can, whenever you can. Pick sections at random. Scan a section, and then come back to and read it more carefully later.

I assure you - it will help you in this job, it will help you throughout your career.

IMHO.

Good luck .. PSM
