Excerpts from the Book Description:

Linux is the fastest-growing Java development platform because it saves money and time by serving as a platform for both development and deployment. But developers face significant platform-specific challenges when managing and deploying Java applications in a controlled production environment.

Written for Java and Linux developers alike, Java Application Development on Linux is the hands-on guide to the full Java application development lifecycle on Linux.

Determined to spare other developers hours of trial and error, Albing and Schwarz demonstrate the platform, tools, and application development by showing realistic, easy-to-follow examples. After a simple command-line application introduces basic tools, this program leads readers through business-logic object analysis, database design, Java servlet UIs, Java Server Pages (JSP) UIs, Swing GUIs, and Standard Widget Toolkit (SWT) GUIs. Scaling up to the enterprise level provides the opportunity to use both the JBoss Application Server and the Apache Geronimo Application Servers, and Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB).

Readers learn how to:

* Use development tools available on Linux, such as the GNU Compiler for Java (gcj), Ant, the NetBeans IDE, IBM's Eclipse Java IDE, JUnit, and Sun ONE Studio.

* Develop business logic layers using Java DataBase Connectivity (JDBC)

* Add a Web interface using servlets and JSPs

* Add a GUI using Sun's Abstract Window Toolkit (AWT) and IBM's SWT

* Deploy EJBs in Linux

The authors conclude by demonstrating how a hierarchy of budgets can be created, tracked, and shared with Concurrent Versions System (CVS).

:) "But overall, this is still an excellent technical book and adequately achieves its main goal of making a beginner application developer out of a Java layman."

:| "I'm not sure why we needed this book. Java is supposed to be "write once, run anywhere" (WORA). And in general Java and it's related tools are pretty close to that. So what does a book about Java on Linux bring? A little bit of information about make, which you probably won't use, but will use Ant instead (which is also covered). And information on gcj, which is unique to Linux."
