  • IBM Rational Application Developer is a very important tool for developers, but it is also a complex product. This book jump starts the learning process with its focus on interactive, hands-on learning through a wide variety of useful, practical, end-to-end tutorials.

    Hands-on exercises and in-depth explanations form chapter "modules" within the book, providing a complete step-by-step guide to each specific topic while allowing readers to pick and choose which tutorials they want (or need) to study without necessarily going in chapter order. And, because of its modular structure, each tutorial's sample code is independent of any earlier tutorials, freeing readers to skip from tutorial to tutorial based on their specific knowledge requirements. Because of this design, this book continues to be a useful reference as a reader's "need to know" increases.

    Using this book's method, readers quickly learn IBM Rational Application Developer--regardless of their previous level of experience or inexperience. For beginners, there are tutorials that teach how to create Web, EJB, JMS, and Web Services applications using Rational Application Developer. For more advanced readers, there are tutorials on security, publishing, testing, team development, profiling, and logging. Written to appeal to as broad an audience as possible, the tutorials run on common databases, including IBM Cloudscape, IBM DB2 Universal Database, Microsoft SQL Server, Sybase Enterprise Systems, and Oracle Database.

    Foreword by Sridhar Iyengar, Distinguished Engineer, IBM Corporation, who leads the technical strategy for IBM Rational Software and works closely with the Rational, WebSphere, and DB2 development teams in IBM on the design and development of the IBM Software Development Platform. Sridhar also serves on the IBM Software Group Architecture Board Steering Committee and the OMG Architecture Board.An
