Develop, Deploy, and Maintain a WebLogic Server O'Reilly Releases "WebLogic: The Definitive Guide" Sebastopol, CA--At the core of the BEA Systems' WebLogic Platform is WebLogic Server, a stable and popular framework for building scalable, highly available, and secure applications. Because WebLogic is one of the leading J2EE-compliant application servers and provides features such as advanced management, clustering, and web services, it has been embraced by a number of partners devoted to creating a diverse range of products that integrate with WebLogic. One critical but lacking feature, however, is documentation. Lacking, that is, until now. "WebLogic: The Definitive Guide" (O'Reilly, US $49.95) comes to the rescue, to the relief of many frustrated users. Authors Jon Mountjoy and Avinash Chugh have written an exhaustive treatment of the WebLogic server and the management consol, answering any question that developers, programmers, administrators, and system architects might think to ask--and quite a few they may never have thought of. Reviewed by the engineering team at BEA for thoroughness and validity, "WebLogic: The Definitive Guide" covers WebLogic versions 7 and 8.1, including: -Developing J2EE web applications using servlets and JSPs, including WebLogic's own JSP tags and libraries -Configuring and deploying applications on the WebLogic web container -Advanced management of the WebLogic servlet engine and http server -Construction, deployment, and optimization of EJBs in the WebLogic environment -Installing and administrating WebLogic on multiple servers, including details on load balancing, failover, and session management and replication -Setting up SSL and making it available to WebLogic applications -Comprehensive coverage of the available WebLogic security models -Instructions on using WebLogic's SML registry, web service framework, logging, and internationalization APIs -Management of WebLogic via both JMX and SNMP "With these kinds of ingredients, we believe WebLogic Server has realized the perfect recipe to deal with other competing J2EE application servers," assert Mountjoy and Chugh in the book's preface. "As you read on, we're certain you, too, will be convinced."
