Beginning J2EE 1.4: From Novice to Professional (Apress Beginner Series)
James L. Weaver, et al
1590593413
February 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This book is aimed at programmers who have learned the basics of Java from, for example, Beginning Java 1.4: From Novice to Professional, and are now ready to learn how to use Java in the real world, with J2EE. But, J2EE is a big spec, and the target audience is not interested in Enterprise JavaBeans and other advanced specs within J2EE. In fact, 75% of J2EE applications are built using only JavaServer Pages and Servlets (two of the simpler technologies to learn in J2EE), so these are the areas that the audience is particularly interested in.

From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. Featuring over 2,000 recipes among its 1,200-plus pages, it's easy to see why this Italian version of The Joy of Cooking, billed as "the bible of authentic Italian cooking," is a popular wedding gift. Newly updated and translated into English for the first time, the book contains recipes for everything from basic sauces and marinades to salads, game, fish and baked goods, with each section color-coded for easy browsing. Recipes emphasize fresh ingredients and are to-the-point, typically summed up in a paragraph sans photo illustrations. Those who know their way around a kitchen will appreciate the brevity, but a novice might encounter some frustration when making pasta dishes featuring homemade gnocchi or orecchiette without a more in-depth description or the aid of photos. Almost all of the ingredients...


Cost-Based Oracle: Fundamentals

Paperback

Book Description

The question, "Why isn't Oracle using my index?" must be one of the most popular (or perhaps unpopular) questions ever asked on the Oracle help forums. You've picked exactly the right columns, you've got them in the ideal order, you've computed statistics, you've checked for null columns--and the optimizer flatly refuses to use your index unless you hint it. What could possibly be going wrong?

If you've suffered the frustration of watching the optimizer do something completely bizarre when the best execution plan is totally obvious, or spent hours or days trying to make the optimizer do what you want it to do, then this is the book you need. You'll come to know how the optimizer "thinks," understand why it makes mistakes, and recognize the data patterns that make it go awry. With this information at your...

Book Review
The world is divided into two types of people: those who wince when they see the words Canadian geese in print, and those who don't. If you are the former, or if you are the latter working for the former, the The Associated Press Stylebook and Libel Manual provides invaluable assistance when you need to get your Canada geese all in a row. Countless newspapers and other publications base their style guides on this manual. The entries are arranged alphabetically and include issues of spelling, punctuation (there is no period in Dr Pepper), grammar, abbreviation, capitalization (Popsicle and Dumpster are, tollhouse cookies aren't), hyphenation (none, surprisingly, in ball point pen), and frequently misused words. There are also longer discussions of things such as Arabic...


Deploying OpenLDAP

Paperback
·
 
Book Description
LDAP, or Lightweight Directory Access Protocol, is a directory management system/database that simplifies life for anyone managing a network with more than 50 users. While Sun and Microsoft have created their own versions of LDAP, OpenLDAP is freeware that is available for use and redistribution to the programming community. For all the work and time invested in using LDAP, not enough time has been spent designing the layout and the logic of directories. End users and system architects often don’t give appropriate attention to the deployment of LDAP as a standards-based system with interfacing ability. Thus, many of LDAP’s best features - especially OpenLDAP - become unusable. As a remedy, deploying OpenLDAP delves into the logic, theories and fundamentals of directories. This book surpasses "what is", and...
