Some Computer Books Suggestions

Some Books Suggestions

Some good books that we have read recently are the following:

An Introduction to Web Application Development with IBM Websphere Studio It has been written by Gary Craig and Peter Jakab Mauny and provides all the information needed to learn Websphere Studio and pass the IBM Certified Associate Developer exam. The book includes also a CD-ROM with IBM Wesphere software. The book is published by IBM Press.

Java for S/390 and AS/400 COBOL Programmers by Phil Coulthard and George Farr. The Java syntax and JDK functionality is explained through comparaison with COBOL. The book introduces applets, Java Native Interface (JNI), Remote Method Invocation (RMI), Java Beans, Enterprise Java Beans (EJB), servlets, JSP, XML etc. It includes also an introduction to Visual Age for Java which is included in a CD-ROM. The book is published by IBM Press.

The Data Warehouse Toolkit It has been written by Ralph Kimball, who has designed data warehouses for many years (in addition to teaching and consulting). The book compares and contrasts the techniques used for developping on-line transaction processing (OLTP) with those required for data warehouses and demonstrates that they are often quite different. The book is published by John Wiley & Sons, Inc and includes a useful CD.

A complete guide to DB2 Universal Database One very good book written by Don Chamberlin (one of the co-inventors of the original SQL database language). The book supplies detailed and updated information without assuming prior knowledge of DB2 and SQL. You will find dozens of practical tips to save you hours of work in developing database applications. Morgan Kaufmann Publishers Inc.

e-RPG One very good book on the development of Web applications on the AS400 with RPG programming language is “e-RPG” by Bradley V.Stone – MC Press.

JAVA Programming – Advanced Topics A very good book by Joe Wigglesworth and Paula Lumby (both of the IBM Toronto Lab) –Thomson Learning. The book includes a CD full of sotware (e.g. IBM Visual Age for Java, Borland Jbuilder 3 and IBM DB2 UDP Personal Edition)

Enterprise JAVABEANS by Example This excellent book has been written by Henri Jubin, Jurgen Friedrichs and a team of specialists in IBM International Technical Support Organisation. It provides all the information insight and resources you need to begin building tomorrow’s Enterprise Javabeans applications – today. Prentice Hall.

XML and JAVA One very good book on the subject, that includes also good information on Servlets and three tier applications is “Professional Java XML Programming” by Alexander Nakhimovsky and Tom Myers Wrox Press

The Linux A-Z by Phil Cornes. It is a unique publication that guides the student up to the Linux learning ladder to gain a good understanding of the Operating System. It includes different parts on Basics, Administration, System Programming, Device Drivers and Internals. It is published by Prentice Hall.

Beginning Linux Programming by Neil Matthew and Richard Stones. One very good book that is an achievement in terms of its subjet coverage as well as its surprising depth. Published by Wrox Press
