About

GlassFish is a free, open-source Java EE 5-compliant application server that is quickly gaining massive popularity.

This book explains GlassFish installation and configuration, and then moves on to Java EE 5 application development, covering all major Java EE 5 APIs.

Chapter 1 provides an overview of Glassfish, including how to install it, configure it, and verify the installation.

Chapter 2 covers how to develop server-side web applications using the Servlet API.  

Chapter 3 explains how to develop web applications using JavaServer Pages (JSPs), including how to develop and use JSP custom tags.

Chapter 4 discusses how to develop Java EE applications that interact with a relational database system through the Java Persistence API (JPA) and through the Java Database Connectivity API (JDBC).

Chapter 5 explains how to use the JSP Standard Tag Library (JSTL) when developing JavaServer Pages.

Chapter 6 covers how to develop applications using the JavaServer Faces (JSF) component framework to build web applications.

Chapter 7 explains how to develop messaging applications though the Java Messaging Service (JMS) API.

Chapter 8 covers securing J2EE applications through the Java Authentication and Authorization Service (JAAS).
