By Anghel Leonard

Pro Java 7 NIO.2 addresses the 3 basic parts that supply new input/output (I/O) APIs in Java 7, supplying you with the abilities to jot down strong, scalable Java applications:

  • An broad dossier I/O API method addresses characteristic requests that builders have sought because the inception of the JDK
  • A socket channel API addresses multicasting, socket binding linked to channels, and similar matters
  • An asynchronous I/O API allows mapping to I/O amenities, of entirety ports, and diverse I/O occasion port mechanisms to reinforce scalability

NIO.2 for the Java platform, often called JSR 203, is an immense characteristic of the hot Java JDK 7 less than the management of Alan Bateman as an OpenJDK undertaking. make the most of those interesting new advancements with Pro Java 7 NIO.2.

Model Driven Architecture and Ontology Development by Dragan Gaševic, Dragan Djuric, Vladan Devedžic, Bran V.

By Dragan Gaševic, Dragan Djuric, Vladan Devedžic, Bran V. Selic

Defining a proper area ontology is mostly thought of an invaluable, to not say precious step in virtually each software program undertaking. for the reason that software program offers with rules instead of with self-evident actual artefacts. even though, this improvement step is not often performed, as ontologies depend on well-defined and semantically robust AI ideas reminiscent of description logics or rule-based structures, and such a lot software program engineers are principally unexpected with these.

Gaševic and his co-authors attempt to fill this hole via protecting the topic of MDA program for ontology improvement at the Semantic net. half I in their e-book describes current applied sciences, instruments, and criteria like XML, RDF, OWL, MDA, and UML. half II offers the 1st specific description of OMG’s new ODM (Ontology Definition Metamodel) initiative, a specification that's anticipated to be within the kind of an OMG language like UML. eventually, half III is devoted to purposes and sensible facets of constructing ontologies utilizing MDA-based languages. The booklet is supported by means of an internet site exhibiting many ontologies, UML and different MDA-based types, and the changes among them.

"The booklet is both suited for those that simply are looking to learn of the suitable technological panorama, to practitioners facing concrete difficulties, and to researchers looking tips to in all probability fruitful parts of study. The writing is technical but transparent and obtainable, illustrated all through with precious and simply digestible examples." from the Foreword via Bran Selic, IBM Rational software program, Canada.

"I have no idea one other e-book that gives this sort of top of the range perception into UML and ontologies." Steffen Staab, U Koblenz, Germany

Objects, Abstraction, Data Structures and Design: Using Java by Elliot B. Koffman

By Elliot B. Koffman

This model of the publication makes use of the most recent Java expertise, Java 2 regular variation model 5.0 (J2SE V. 5.0), or in a different way often called "Version 5.0." This progressive e-book intertwines challenge fixing and software program engineering with the research of conventional information buildings themes. The ebook emphasizes using gadgets and object-oriented layout. Early chapters supply history insurance of software program engineering. Then, within the chapters on information constructions, those ideas are utilized. The authors motivate use of a five-step procedure for the answer of case reviews: challenge specification, research, layout, implementation, and trying out. As is finished in undefined, those steps are often played in an iterative style instead of in strict series. The Java software Programming Interface (API) is used in the course of the textual content. anyplace attainable, the specification and interface for an information constitution persist with the Java Collections Framework.

  • Emphasizes using items and object-oriented layout
  • Provides a primer at the Java language and provides heritage insurance of software program engineering
  • Encourages an iterative five-step method for the answer of case stories: challenge specification, research, layout, implementation, and checking out

Caution to all dealers, the third variation of this ebook doesn't comprise the J2EE library reference. whereas I notice this data is out there on-line, having a published kind of library references is the first cause i purchase the "in a nutshell" sequence. integrated during this booklet is a really basic assessment of varied company applied sciences, which not like the very necessary language reference contain in different "in a nutshell" books, turns out too wide and shallow to be valuable. Any developer interested by operating in JSP, for instance, will be greater served paying for a e-book on JSP.
