The seventh edition of the Enterprise Java platform is aimed at helping Java engineers take advantage of the advancements in HTML5 and web standards. Web Sockets, asynchronous input and output with Servlets, and strong type safety through the CDI containers will ensure that Java EE 7 remains popular for server-side applications.
If you are a user aiming to get acquainted with the Java EE 7 platform, this book is for you.
"Java EE 7 Developer Handbook" provides a solid foundation of knowledge for developers to build business applications. Following the lead of Agile practices, there is a focus on writing tests to demonstrate test-driven development principles, using the embedded GlassFish 4.0 container examples and the Gradle build system. You will learn about CDI, EJB, JPA, JMS, MDB, Servlets, WebSocket, JAX-RS, Bean Validation, and so much more.
"Java EE 7 Developer Handbook" is designed as a companion to the professional software developer who quickly needs to lookup some working code, understand the basics of the framework, and then go out and fulfill the business contract with the customer. Typically, engineers are under pressure to develop professional code that is of high quality and contains a low number of bugs. Java EE 7 Developer Handbook relies heavily on the Arquillian framework to illustrate how much easier it is to write Java EE tests, and together with the modern practice of writing containerless applications that actually embed an application container, developing agile Java EE suddenly becomes reasonable, smart, pragmatic, and achievable.
You will start off with an overview of the Java EE platform: the containers, the design, and architecture. From there, you can follow the path of the CDI, the true gem of the framework, and then the server side end point, EJB. It is completely up to you when and if you want to learn about Java persistence. However, don’t miss out on the highlights of Java EE 7 such as WebSocket, Bean Validation, and asynchronous Servlet API.
"Java EE 7 Developer Handbook" is a vertical slice through standard Java enterprise architecture. If you have been wondering why developers have invested so much time and effort into learning topics such as Enterprise Java Beans, you will quickly understand why when you find out the difference between stateful and stateless Beans. Best of all, this book covers the topic from the perspective of new API and new modern practices. For instance, you, the developer and designer, are expected to write applications with annotations in comparison with J2EE. Java EE 7 Developer Handbook incorporates helpful hints and tips to get the developer up to speed in a short amount of time on EJB, CDI, Persistence, Servlet, JMS, WebSocket, JAX-RS and Bean Validation, and much more.
"Java EE 7 Developer Handbook" is the reference guide you need beside you at your desk.
"Java EE 7 Developer Handbook" is an example based tutorial with descriptions and explanations.

Peter A Pilgrim
Peter A. Pilgrim is the 91st Oracle Java Champion, an independent contractor, a professional software developer and designer. Peter is an honors degree graduate of London South Bank University in 1990. He had already secured a Master's degree course for September 1991, but then instead elected to live and work in Germany for a few years in order to beat off the then, economic recession. He spent productive years at a joint-venture company developing spectroscopic scientific software in Fortran 77, C, Solaris, and X Windows.
After four years abroad Peter returned to London and continued his career in the industry with more C, C++, and UNIX development. He then leapt at a chance to get into investment banking with Deutsche Bank in 1998. It was at Deutsche Bank a week after joining them that Peter discovered Java was the next best thing since sliced bread, when a colleague dropped out of a programming Java training course.
As the substitute person, Peter realized this peculiar Java language and platform was the future and the answer. Peter applied his studies to his day job and learnt Java applets, then Java Swing and switched over to the server side with Java Servlets with web applications involving the Struts framework.
In 2004, Peter created the JAVAWUG user group in London for the burgeoning development community who were interested in web development on the Java EE. What started as the Struts Networking Users Group in London quickly expanded to lot of other areas. The JAVAWUG ran for six years until 2010. He built a reputation for travelling to Java technology conferences in the US and Europe and being heavily involved in the wider community. He spoke at several developer conferences including QCon London, ACCU, Devoxx, Devoxx UK, and JavaOne. In 2007, Peter was elected to the Sun Microsystems' Java Champions program. Today, Peter A. Pilgrim is a well-known specialist in Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) technology, focused on the server-side and the implementation of electronic commerce. Peter has built professional Java EE applications for Blue-chip companies and top-tier investment and retail banks including Lloyds Banking Group, Barclays, UBS, Credit Suisse, Royal Bank of Scotland, and LBi. He is also a fan of Agile practices and Test Driven Development. Peter, currently, lives in South London with his long-term partner Terry, who is a Scottish Diva, business communication coach, and a singerher voice is phenomenal.
