This is a guide to developing Java EE 5 applications deployed to the high-performance, Java EE 5-compliant GlassFish application server, which is quickly gaining massive popularity. After GlassFish installation and configuration, it covers application development, including all major Java EE 5 APIs: JSPs, JSTL, Servlets, and JSF for web applications; the Java Persistence API and JDBC to interact with RDBMS; EJB 3, including container-managed transactions and EJB declarative security through annotations; the JMS API for messaging; the JAAS API for secure applications; frameworks built on the Java EE 5 specification, including Seam, Facelets, and Ajax4jsf. It is aimed at Java developers wishing to become proficient with Java EE 5, who are expected to have some experience with Java and J2EE technologies and to have developed and deployed applications in the past, but need no previous knowledge of Java EE, and will teach the reader how to use GlassFish to develop and deploy applications.
Chapter 1 provides an overview of Glassfish, including how to install it, configure it, and verify the installation.
Chapter 2 covers how to develop server-side web applications using the Servlet API.
Chapter 3 explains how to develop web applications using JavaServer Pages (JSPs), including how to develop and use JSP custom tags.
Chapter 4 discusses how to develop Java EE applications that interact with a relational database system through the Java Persistence API (JPA) and through the Java Database Connectivity API (JDBC).
Chapter 5 explains how to use the JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL) when developing JavaServer Pages.
Chapter 6 covers how to develop applications using the JavaServer Faces (JSF) component framework to build web applications.
Chapter 7 explains how to develop messaging applications though the Java Messaging Service (JMS) API.
Chapter 8 covers securing J2EE applications through the Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS).
Chapter 9 discusses how to develop Enterprise Java Beans that adhere to the EJB 3 specification.
Chapter 10 explains how to develop and deploy web services that conform to the JAX-WS 2.1 specification.
Chapter 11 covers frameworks that build on top of the Java EE 5 specification, including Seam, Facelets, and Ajax4Jsf.
The appendices cover some of the advanced features of the GlassFish server.
