This book is a desktop quick reference for Java programmers who are writing enterprise applications. The first part of the book provides a fast-paced introduction to the key Java Enterprise APIs: JDBC™, RMI, Java IDL (CORBA), servlets, JNDI, and Enterprise JavaBeans™. These chapters are followed by a quick-reference section that succinctly details every class of those APIs, as well as a few other Enterprise APIs.

This book complements the best-selling Java in a Nutshell and the forthcoming Java Foundation Classes in a Nutshell. Java in a Nutshell introduces the Java programming language itself and provides an API quick reference for the core packages and classes of the Java platform, while Java Foundation in a Nutshell offers a fast-paced tutorial on the Java APIs that comprise the Java Foundation Classes (JFC) and provides corresponding quick-reference material.
