Written by two of the industry's leading authorities, The Developer's Guide to OracleÂ® Web Application Server 3 is a practical, comprehensive guide to Oracle Web Application Server (OAS), a leading-edge development platform for creating Web-enabled database applications. This book focuses on developing multitiered Web applications that interact with relational databases, a promising new arena for business application development.
This book describes in detail the architecture and fundamental concepts of OAS, as well as key design challenges and practical approaches for solving them. Abundant real-world programming examples--using working code that you can incorporate into your own programs--demonstrate time- and trouble-saving techniques.
In addition, the book features:
- The key elements of Oracle Web Application Server's architecture: cartridges, Web Request Broker (WRB) API, application services, HTTP listeners, dispatchers, and CORBA
- Several complete applications, written in all of the major languages, including a HelpDesk application implemented in Java, PL/SQL, and Perl
- Detailed descriptions of the APIs and nuances of programming within the Java, PL/SQL, WRB C API, Perl, LiveHTML, and ODBC cartridges
- An in-depth examination of the OAS 3.0 toolkits for PL/SQL and Java
- A Web Applications Framework for each OAS 3.0 cartridge, that will save you weeks of development time
- Examples of database access using PL/SQL, Java Database Connectivity (JDBC), and the Oracle Call Interface (OCI)
Using their experience in developing commercial applications with OAS, from its initial release to its latest version, the authors provide the practical, hands-on skills you need to create effective enterprise applications for the Web.
