We are a small development shop in Australia that utilises WebSphere for some of our larger accounts. Consequently we don't have a large amount of free time to always fine tune our code to meet best practices etc and try in most part to build our systems on time, on budget but still to a high degree of professionalism. Having said that I look for what I call 'Real World Best Practices' that can be implemented in a cost effective and efficient manner for small projects as well as large ones.
And to be honest not everyone can read these books cover to cover and retain it all in memory.
So my question is, Does your book cater for the small to medium sized projects that still warrant WAS and therefore is a worthwhile investment for us to use as not only a design guide but also as a knowledge source for specific tasks in and around Java development in the small to medium commercial world.
Thank-you for your time, Bruce.

Yes, we tried to cover the best practices for ALL types and sizes of projects. That's why the book is so blinkin' long -- we cover several different "flavors" of development for WebSphere -- for instance covering development with base servlets and JSP's, with Struts, and with XSLT. For persistence, we cover basic JDBC, JDBC with the Active Record and Data Mapper patterns, as well as BMP and CMP EJB's. In general, we have a high emphasis on reusable patterns and best practices in WebSphere development.
As for whether or not it would be worthwhile -- I suggest you check it out in a bookstore and decide for yourself.

Thanks Kyle. I've looked at some of the comments posted by others in relation to your book which all seem to be very positive so I'll keep my open for it. Again, thank-you.
 
Yes, of course, and I accept that blame. In fact, i covet that blame. As does this tiny ad:
