The new edition of the Apache Cookbook offers you updated solutions to the problems you're likely to encounter with Apache. Thoroughly updated for Apache versions 2.0 and 2.2, this book includes more than 200 recipes ranging from simple tasks, such installing the server on Red Hat Linux or Windows, to more complex tasks, such as setting up name-based virtual hosts or securing and managing your proxy server.
Java in a Nutshell, 5th Edition, covers all the extensive changes implicit in 5.0, the latest and greatest version of Java yet. This classic remake has also undergone a complete editorial makeover in order to more closely meet the needs of the modern Java programmer. Among the improvements: more discussion on tools and frameworks, and new code examples to illustrate the working of APIs.
Learn how to be more productive with Scala, a new multi-paradigm language for the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) that integrates features of both object-oriented and functional programming. With this book, you'll discover why Scala is ideal for highly scalable, component-based applications that support concurrency and distribution. You'll also learn how to leverage the wealth of Java class libraries to meet the practical needs of enterprise and Internet projects more easily.
Java Cookbook, 2nd Edition gets you to the heart of what you need to know when you need to know it. The completely revised and updated recipes in Java Cookbook, 2nd Edition cover all of the major APIs from Java 1.4 as well as the new 1.5 version.

With more changes than any previous version, Java 5.0 makes it easier to develop safe, powerful code. But it isn't any easier to learn. That means the bestselling hands-on tutorial Learning Java takes on greater significance, delivering a no-nonsense approach to Java 5.0 features, such as "generics," and looks into the popular Eclipse IDE.
This cookbook offers practical solutions and advice to programmers charged with implementing a service-oriented architecture (SOA) in their organization. Instead of providing another conceptual, high-level view of SOA, this cookbook shows you how to make SOA work. Full of Java and XML code you can insert directly into your applications, Java SOA Cookbook focuses primarily on the use of free and open source Java Web Services technologies.

This quick, practical, and thorough introduction to Java web services -- the JAX-WS and JAX-RS APIs -- offers a mix of architectural overview, complete working code examples, and short yet precise instructions for compiling, deploying, and executing a sample application. You'll not only learn how to write web services from scratch, but also how to integrate existing services into your Java applications.
Learn how to design and develop distributed web services in Java using RESTful architectural principals and the JAX-RS specification in Java EE 6. With this hands-on reference, you'll focus on implementation rather than theory, and discover why the RESTful method is far better than technologies like CORBA and SOAP. You'll get step-by-step instructions for installing, configuring, and running several working JAX-RS examples using the JBoss RESTEasy implementation of JAX-RS.
This practical pocket guide gets you up to speed quickly with Eclipse. It covers basic concepts, including Views and editors, as well as features that are not commonly understood, such as Perspectives and Launch Configurations. You'll learn how to write and debug your Java code--and how to integrate that code with tools such as Ant and JUnit. You'll also get a toolbox full of tips and tricks to handle common--and sometimes unexpected--tasks that you'll run across in your Java development cycle.
It takes a book as versatile as its subject to cover Apache Tomcat. This book is a valuable reference for administrators and webmasters, a useful guide for programmers who want to use Tomcat as their web application server during development or in production, and an excellent introduction for anyone interested in Tomcat.
