e-Book Stripes: ...and Java web development is fun again (Pragmatic Programmers) epub download

by Frederic Daoud



Personally, I consider this book the best confluence of a great explication with a great technology since C Programming by K&R. Because of this book, I will use Stripes to coordinate other best practice technologies, such as Hibernate and Spring, rather than the other way around. Having said that, let me acknowledge what Daoud and Fennel do: Stripes knows it's place in the software ecology. It doesn't strive to be Kudzu-like, overwhelming diversity.

Frederic Daoud is a software developer who has been using Java since 1997 and developing web applications since the "pre-JSP" days of just Servlets. Currently a Stripes committer, he is active on the Stripes mailing list, answering questions and helping new users.

Stripes brings simplicity back to Java web development.

Tired of complicated Java web frameworks that just get in your way? Stripes is a lightweight, practical framework that lets you write lean and mean code without a bunch of XML configuration files. This book will show you how to use Stripes to its full potential, so that you can easily develop professional, full-featured web applications. As a bonus, you’ll also get expert advice from the creator of Stripes, Tim Fennell. This title is currently Out of Print. Stripes brings simplicity back to Java web development. You’ll be up and running in minutes, and can go a long way with just a few simple concepts.

and Java Web Development Is Fun Again. by Frederic Daoud (Pragmatic Programmers). This book is awesome. Frederic is a great author who explains and walks the reader the very clear, well though through, and insightful examples and provides insight into the mechanics and overall concepts of Stripes and web development in general.

Stripes is an open source web application framework based on the model–view–controller (MVC) pattern. Daoud, Frederic (October 27, 2008). and Java Web Development Is Fun Again (1st e. It aims to be a lighter weight framework than Struts by using Java technologies such as annotations and generics that were introduced in Java ., to achieve "convention over configuration".

This book explains why - when choosing a web framework next time - you might want to take a long, hard look at Stripes. The book starts with a simple example that shows all major parts of Stripes in action, just to give the reader a feeling for how things are wired together (although there's not much wiring to do). For the remainder of the book, one application is developed from scratch (a web-mail front-end), adding features step by step, thereby making use of more and more of Stripes' features.

Tired of complicated Java web frameworks that just get in your way? Stripes is a lightweight, practical framework that lets you write lean and mean code without a bunch of XML configuration files. Stripes is designed to do a lot of the common work for you, while being flexible enough to adapt to your requirements. This book will show you how to use Stripes to its full potential, so that you can easily develop professional, full-featured web applications. As a bonus, you'll also get expert advice from the creator of Stripes, Tim Fennell.As a Java developer, you want to leverage your knowledge and the wealth of Java libraries and tools. But when it comes to web development, many frameworks seem over-engineered and too complex. They have a steep learning curve, and it's just too difficult to get them to do exactly what you need because of their "closed-box" design.Stripes brings simplicity back to Java web development. You'll be up and running in minutes, and can go a long way with just a few simple concepts. You'll spend your time developing your application, not maintaining gobs of configuration. Because Stripes is very transparent, you will understand exactly what is going on from request to response.The popularity of Stripes keeps increasing because of its clean design and extensibility. With this complete tutorial and reference, you can master Stripes and take advantage of its productivity in web application development. You'll tailor the framework to your requirements, not the other way around!This book is packed with explanations and examples so that you learn practical problem-solving techniques. You'll be able to "wrap your head around the framework" and fully understand how Stripes works. When a client requests a feature, you'll answer "yes" with confidence because you're using a framework that lets you get the results that you need without getting in your way. Because of its open design, Stripes lets you easily integrate your favorite tools: tag libraries, AJAX frameworks, ORM solutions, dependency injectors, and more.

At 380 pages this is the thinnest technical book in my book shelve but yet it covers everything I need to know to develop a web application - from "Hello World" to ajax, security, cross sites scripting attack, unit testing ...

I was pleasantly surprised by how comprehensive this book is. I learned a great deal from this book. I am especially appreciative of the section on security. I learned a great deal seeing how the many well though out features of Stripes being put together to produce a secured wed application. This section alone is worth the price of the book.

A superb framework and an equally superb book. Stripes is my favorite web framework, and this is one of the few technical book that I enjoyed reading and owning.

I recommend this book for learning how to use Stripes. I recommend Stripes because of the way this book teaches developing Java web apps with Stripes, and because Stripes is a small but powerful framework that seems to be there when you need it and out of the way when you don't. This beats the electronic documentation you get with most other products of this kind.

Just as Stripes gives you a lean, clean framework for web development, this book hands you what you need how you need it.

Really good book. Great place to start learning Stripes. To the point, with information from the creator of Stripes. Probably the best framework-specific book I've ever read.

That's pretty strong praise, I know, but well deserved. For the last 10 years I have attempted to keep my skill set sharp by reading and playing with new languages, frameworks, and concepts. Everyone knows the most frustrating part of most technical books is that the code samples never work. Or the author makes assumptions about your level of knowledge on something peripheral yet essential to getting the code to run.
Not so with this book.
This book will take you through all the basics to get this framework up and running in less than 10 minutes. I was amazed the first time a colleague showed me Stripes. I had never heard of it. With Stripes we were able to get a full blown web application up running using EJB 3.0 for persistence, Guice for injecting beans, and Stripes tags for the view in minutes. Naturally, I chalked this up to my colleague's expertise - the guy is scary smart. So when I changed jobs and was asked about frameworks I liked, I said Stripes.
Although the documentation on the Stripes site may be OK for gurus like my former colleague, I found myself struggling to repeat our success with Stripes by myself until I bought this book. The examples are clear, the writing enjoyable to read, and the code just flat out works.
There were some minor things that did not work as I expected them to, when I expected them to, but usually this was due to my own error. Sometimes I found I had missed something in the reading or simply gotten ahead of the author.
When I did have questions about why things weren't working quite right or why something was done a certain way, I simply posted a note on the Stripes mailing list and I was answered directly by the author himself. As I am writing this, Mr. Daoud is actually going over my configuration to see what I messed up when trying to get the Stripes MockServletContext to run properly.
In fact, I have had Tim Fennell and Frederic Daoud respond directly to questions via email in less than 2 hours the few times I have had questions on anything Stripes related. It was also nice to see that one of the questions I posted on the mailing list regarding client side validation and passing the event name via JavaScript was actually addressed in the book on page 345.
If I sound excited about the book, it's because I am. The Stripes framework, the Stripes community, Tim Fennell, and Frederic Daoud are all fantastic. But now that I have this book, I have a Stripes expert with me all the time.

I purchased the pre-release of this book, and was delighted when my book finally arrived. This book covers stripes end to end and various integration points between stripes and other important enterprise frameworks such as hibernate/JPA and Spring. It explains a beautifully simple framework thoroughly and carefully pointing out other tools that work well with the stripes core such as stripersist and stripes-security. This book is concentrated knowledge laid out clearly and concisely. If you want to do web development in Java, and you don't need a heavily component based framework, stripes is for you, and this book is great for stripes. The examples and topics are clearer and cleaner than what is given on the stripes website and has with it resources that can help you get a complex website up and running in a very short amount of time. I have rarely read a book that was this easy to understand and follow, and it has become my reference bible for stripes since beginning with the framework. I only wish the other frameworks I've worked with had such good documentation.

I just finished this book and I have to say that it is one of the best written programming books I've ever read. The thing that wasn't so clear to me before I bought the book was how comprehensive it was--after having read it, it is by far, one of the most comprehensive, end-to-end books I've ever read.

I've been involved w/ web application development for over a decade, and no other framework has piqued my interest like Stripes. In addition to being "new" and not carrying over the baggage other frameworks have from prior versions, Stripes is a refreshing change.

In addition, the Stripes user community is just absolutely fantastic! Post a question to the mail list, and you'll have an answer back quicker than you'd expect--and the depth of knowledge of those on the list is both wonderful and amazing.

This wonderful framework combined with a great user community and now this excellent book makes Stripes worth learning, and Daoud's book is a bible to learning everything from the fundamentals and basics to advanced topics. I can't praise it enough! VERY well written!
