Written with the Information Systems professional or general reader in mind, Not Just Java: A Technology Briefing provides an introduction to today's Internet, gives an overview of what's best in Java (though with a distinctly anti-Microsoft spin), and stresses the growing importance of Java technology.
Next, he discusses e-commerce, obviously an area with tremendous potential, and then security on the Internet. Here again, Microsoft technology fails to measure up. A tour of Java as a better object-oriented programming language follows, including additional multimedia Java APIs and JavaBeans (including Enterprise JavaBeans).
Later sections in the book look at today's multitiered distributed architectures and what Java offers for the enterprise, including network and distributed computing. Readers who don't mind strong opinions will appreciate Not Just Java's argumentative approach to what Java is and how it might well transform computing as we know it within the next few years. --Richard DraganFrom the Back Cover:
