Summary and Info
If you're serious about writing components in Java, this book focuses on the component services you need to master. DevelopMentor Chief Scientist Stuart Halloway presents unprecedented, in-depth coverage of writing, deploying, and maintaining Java components. Halloway begins by showing how to use, control, and troubleshoot components. He offers real-world guidance on reflection performance, and demonstrates how reflection is used to build the Java serialization architecture. He also offers detailed coverage of using the Java Native Interface (JNI) to control the boundaries between Java code and components written in other environments. In Part II, Halloway presents a practical vision for using component services to become a more effective Java developer. Through examples and sample code, he introduces generative programming techniques that leverage Java into high performance. Finally, building on these techniques, he shows how to construct robust interoperability between Java and Win32/COM.
