Developing enterprise Java applications with lightweight frameworks

POJOs in Action describes the new, easier ways to develop enterprise Java applications. It describes how to make key design decisions when developing business logic using POJOs, including how to organize and encapsulate the business logic, access the database, manage transactions, and handle database concurrency. This book is a new-generation Java applications guide: it enables readers to successfully build lightweight applications that are easier to develop, test, and maintain.

POJOs in Action is now available from Manning or you can order from Amazon.

You can also download the source code examples or participate in the book's discussion forum.
