Titel: Pro Amazon EC2 and WS: Elastic Compute Cloud and Web Services Development with Java
Autor: Max Yankelevich, Mikhail Malamud, Donald Mahaya
„Cloud computing is being talked about as the next major trend that is going to change the way businesses use technology to gain competitive advantage in the marketplace, much like the Internet did in the 1990s. Java Enterprise Edition (EE) appears to be the programming platform of choice for most organizations that require scalability and enterprise application features. Java has had tremendous success in the engineering community with a substantial ecosystem of various open source frameworks and utilities
Cloud computing + Java + open source = The next generation of „Internet-scale“ applications
Pro Amazon EC2 and WS with Java walks you through a comprehensive and practical approach to working with Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud in EC2 and associated web services using Java EE implementations, frameworks, and tools like JBoss, Hibernate, Spring, GridGrain, and more to create the next generation of „Internet-scale“ applications.
The Freedom OSS author team has had long-term, close partnerships with Amazon Web Services and JBoss. These relationships give the authors a unique insight into their inner workings and various implementation strategies. And these insights provide a „view from the trenches“ that comes from having done over 100 Amazon AWS and over 300 Java EE projects in the last two years.
