Product Description

From the Back Cover

JBuilder Developer's Guide provides comprehensive coverage of JBuilder from the practitioner's viewpoint. The authors develop a consolidated application throughout the chapters, allowing conceptual cohesion and illustrating the use of JBuilder to build 'real-world' applications. The examples can be compiled and run under JBuilder Personal edition, a free edition of JBuilder. JBuilder Developer's Guide is not version specific but explains the latest JBuilder 6, 7, and 8 features such as enterprise J2EE application development, CORBA, SOAP, XML tools, Enterprise JavaBeans, JavaServer Pages/Servlets, and JavaBeans technology. JBuilder repeatedly wins "developer's choice" awards as the best visual tool for developing Java applications.

Format: Paperback
The book's stated audience is intermediate to advanced level Java programmers, yet 75 percent of the book is an introductory tutorial on how to write Java applications, not how to use JBuilder. The first 200 pages were JBuilder-specific, well written, and they got me up to speed quickly with using the enterprise edition. The rest of the book was not at all helpful - I bought the book to learn to use JBuilder effectively, and learn some tips and tricks from those who have been using it for some years, not how to use JDBC and IO.
I also found the section on JBuilder's data-aware components to be severely lacking. JBuilder obviously has a robust toolset, and a quick explanation of two of the provided components was inadequate. The inconsistency in the "In Practice" sections was also disturbing. A product of several authors, but it would have been too easy to notice and solve this problem to be forgiven.
All that said, the book is well written and organized, hence the 3 star rating. But beware of the stated intended audience and book content before you buy.

I have followed the instructions for the example in Chapter 11 very carefully (twice!!!) and was unable to get the program to run successfully. There is some problem with the jTreeCourses and the CoursesPanel in the jSplitPane, they don't appear on the panel when I run the program.
I then looked at the code on the CD and found that it was different from the code the book guides the user to generate.
What a waste of time and money!

The instruction presented in this guide is easy to conceptualize. The structure allows for the reader to build upon knowledge gained from not only the topics contained in this guide, but additionally outside instruction. The example codes presented range in difficulty so that the reader is able to understand and develop a range of skills. This book would be excellent for core instruction or as a supplement.

I have never seen a book which so often would reference a topic or word or idea that it goes on to explain LATER in the book or section. Weird. It does seem comprehensive but not a easy read or anything. I have read better. I am glad, though, that it is NOT JBuilder specific because I am just learning JAVA and it is good to have JAVA information rather than just JBuilder interface information.

This is a JBuilder book for beginning Java programmers, but it seems to have advanced topics I didn't need yet. This book is full of useful information and valuable tips. On the other side, I had not seen a product oriented book give me the good and the bad of a product. I learning much from from reading the book.

A well structured content and a simple approach to explain the techniques that developers will need to know in order to build large scale Java applications.This book contains features in JBuilder versions 7 and 8 but also contains general features from previous versions.
