Rational Software Announces New Book for Leveraging Rational Unified Process in J2EE Application Development

8/20/2002 - Rational Software released "Building J2EE Applications With the Rational Unified Process®," a new book written by process and software architecture thought-leaders Peter Eeles, Kelli Houston and Wojtek Kozaczynski of Rational Software.

Published by Addison Wesley, "Building J2EE Applications With the Rational Unified Process" provides readers with a comprehensive view of developing Java 2 Platform Enterprise Edition (J2EE) applications utilizing the best practices of the Rational Unified Process.

"My colleagues Kelli, Peter and Wojtek have successfully combined in one single book the technologies of the UML, Java and J2EE, with the Rational Unified Process and brought them together in the example of an online auction application, without creating a monster of a paper," said Rational Fellow, Philippe Kruchten. "I am personally delighted that they have picked the Rational Unified Process as the basis for the process aspect. The book gives a new perspective of the Rational Unified Process and all the activities, templates, and heuristics that they have selected. The book also helps the reader understand that the Rational Unified Process is very accessible and flexible."

"By following a complete development example, from start to finish, this book demonstrates how to use the Rational Unified Process to improve the quality of J2EE applications and reduce development time," said Eeles, senior technical consultant, Rational Software.

"For those customers who are familiar with the Rational Unified Process but are new to J2EE, this book provides a unique view of these technologies from the perspective of when to use them, why to use them and how to use them," said Kozaczynski, director, architecture and application frameworks, Rational Software. "For those who are familiar with J2EE but are new to the Rational Unified Process, the book presents an easily accessible prescription of how to build J2EE applications using comprehensive process guidance."

"As a member of a team that creates assets to accelerate software development productivity, I've seen the power of combining J2EE technologies and the Rational Unified Process," said Houston, senior architecture consultant, Rational Software. "Writing this book has given us the chance to share what we've learned, and it's our belief that this book will help project teams develop better J2EE applications faster."
