NEW: (Year 2018)
1. Java EE 8 and Angular
The demand for modern and high performing web enterprise applications is growing rapidly. No more is a basic HTML front-end enough to meet customer demands. This book will be your one stop guide to build outstanding enterprise web applications with Java EE and Angular. It will teach you how to harness the power of Java EE to build sturdy back ends while applying Angular on the front end. Your journey to building excellent web enterprise applications starts here!
The book starts with a brief introduction to the fundamentals of Java EE and all the new APIs offered in the latest release. Armed with the knowledge of Java EE 8, you will go over what it’s like to build an end to end application, configure database connection for JPA, and build scalable microservice using RESTful APIs running in docker containers. Taking advantage of Payara Micro capabilities, you will build an Issue Management System, which will have various features exposed as services using Java EE backend. With a detailed coverage of Angular fundamentals, the book will expand the Issue Management System by building a modern single page application frontend. Moving forward you will learn to fit both the pieces together i.e. the frontend Angular application with the backend java EE microservices. As each unit in a microservice promotes high cohesion, you will learn different ways in which independent units can be tested efficiently. #java_mags
2. Hands-On Cloud Development with WildFly
The book starts by introducing you to WildFly Swarm-a tool that allows you to create runnable microservices from Java EE components. You’ll learn the basics of Swarm operation-creating a microservice containing only the parts of enterprise runtime needed in a specific case. Later, you’ll learn how to configure and test those services.
In order to deploy our services in the cloud, we’ll use OpenShift. You’ll get to know basic information on its architecture, features, and relationship to Docker and Kubernetes. Later, you’ll learn how to deploy and configure your services to run in the OpenShift cloud.
In the last part of the book, you’ll see how to make your application production-ready. You’ll find out how to configure continuous integration for your services using Jenkins, make your application resistant to network failures using Hystrix, and how to secure them using Keycloak.
By the end of the book, you’ll have a fully functional example application and will have practical knowledge of Java EE cloud development that can be used as a reference in your other projects.
3. Optimizing Java: Practical techniques for improving JVM application performance
Currently, no books exist that focus on the practicalities of Java application performance tuning, as opposed to the theory and internals of Java virtual machines. This practical guide is the “missing link” that aims to move Java performance tuning from the realm of guesswork and folklore to an experimental science. Learn how to approach performance problems in an consistent and systematic way Resolve production performance issues by learning core Java performance topics Identify and resolve performance issues before encountering them in production Understand the performance problems you encounter by learning the Java platform’s internals
5. Java APIs, Extensions and Libraries: With JavaFX, JDBC, jmod, jlink, Networking, and the Process API
This book completes the Apress Java learning journey and is a comprehensive approach to learning Java APIs, extensions, and modules such as Java EE integration, mobile Java modules, JavaFX, and JDBC. In this book, you’ll learn how to build user interfaces with Swing and JavaFX as well as how to write network programs with the new Java 9 and much more.
Java APIs, Extensions and Libraries is for Java programmers who are familiar with the fundamentals of the Java language and Java programming, who are now ready to call upon the power of extended Java functionality available from the huge array of Java APIs, extensions, and libraries. After reading and learning from this book you’ll be ready to become a professional Java programmer.
