Java EE 7 Essentials

This book provides a code-intensive overview of the key specifications in the Java EE 7 platform (one specification per chapter). The main concepts from the different specifications are explained using simple code samples. All the associated code is available on github.

A significant part of this book is derived from my Java EE 6 Pocket Guide. New chapters have been added to cover all the new technologies in the platform – WebSocket 1.0, Batch 1.0, JSON-P 1.0, and Concurrency 1.0. New sections have been added or existing sections updated to reflect the changes in the platform. If you have read the Java EE 6 Pocket Guide, then you can read this book at a much faster pace; otherwise, you can read this book from beginning to end. Alternatively, you can read specific chapters based upon your interest

  1. Hello Aron,
    In your example of batch processing, you’re annotating the reader,processor,writer with @Named, to make it a CDI bean. But when I leave out the annotation, and put the full package+class name in the job.xml, it also works. (glassfish 4.0)
    What is the benefit of making those classes CDI beans ? It looks like it is not mandatory.


  2. Dear Arun
    I bought the eBook from Amazon. I have two points –
    1. The eBook format is very misformat at multiple places.
    2. Book is very concise at many topics, which makes complex to understand.
