Basic Introduction of Java EE 6 Platform
It is very important for Java developers to understand the industry-standard platform that is Java EE (Enterprise Edition) commonly used for developing Java solutions. This platform is based on solid foundation of Java Platform and has added libraries and system services that support scalability, accessibility, security, integrity and other requirements for enterprise-class applications. It has rich functionality and is a high performance platform. Its recent releases have also stressed simplicity and ease of use. Java EE 5 has made development of Java enterprise applications for Java developers. Its next release is JavaEE6 which adds significant new technologies and also some simplifications in the platform that helps in extending the usability improvements. Here we will enhance the significant features of JavaEE6. GOALS of Java EE6: Java API for Restful Web Services (JAX-RS): This enables you to build lightweight web services rapidly conforming to representational state transfer style of software architecture. An important concept in REST is the existence of resources that can be referred with a global identifier that is URI. Data and functionality.
