IBM Developerworks Java Tutorials:
::: Java 2 gets a new focus subsystem :::
The Java 2 platform gets a completely new AWT focus subsystem with the latest release of Java Standard Edition, 1.4, and we've got the scoop on what makes it go. Java language engineer Bertrand Portier offers a first look at the new classes and methods (including the essential KeyboardFocusManager) that comprise the AWT focus subsystem and
provides tips for adapting your programming efforts as you migrate to the new API.
::: Threading lightly: Sometimes it's best not to share :::
Sharing is an overrated virtue in the world of concurrent programming, since sharing data between threads can lead to all sorts of difficulty. But there is an easy way to avoid this problem: the ThreadLocal class. ThreadLocal gets relatively little attention, but it can be very handy for simplifying the development of thread-safe concurrent programs. In this third installment of Threading lightly, Java software consultant Brian Goetz examines ThreadLocal and offers tips for exploiting its power.
::: Using Java to Extract Data into XML :::
This panel-based tutorials by developer and author Nick Chase for Java developers who work with XML explains how to use JDBC (or a JDBC-ODBC bridge) to acquire data from a RDBMS and put it into XML format for further processing. With a basic explanation of the Java JDBC database drivers and detailed instructions for collecting the XML data in a usable form.
::: Using Java to Insert XML into a Database :::
The obvious companion to the first tutorial, this panel-based tutorial tells developers how to use Java JDBC (and JDBC-ODBC bridge) to wrap XML data and insert it into a RDBMS for application processing. With detailed instructions of the data conversion techniques and a backgrounder on JDBC basics.
::: Introduction to JavaServer Pages :::
JavaServer Pages is a fundamental server-side Web technology and an integral part of a well-stocked toolkit. This tutorial introduces the fundamentals of JSP technology and describes the elements that define it: concepts, syntax, and semantics. Step -by-step instructions and detailed examples give you the skills you need to start writing your own JSP solutions.
::: Threading Lightly: Reducing Contention :::
Java threading expert Brian Goetz continues his Threading Lightly series with a look at three techniques for reducing contention -- and improving scalability -- in your Java programs. If concurrency issues have you stumped, be sure to stop by Brian's Multithreaded Java programming discussion forum for expert assistance.
::: Java Sockets 101 :::
Sockets provide a mechanism for communication between two computers, and the Java language offers a way to use sockets effectively without having to know the details of the underlying operating system. This practical tutorial by Java developers Roy Miller and Adam Williams walks you through several hands-on examples -- ranging from single client/sever communication to a pooled collection of clients accessing the server -- to teach you how to use sockets to handle scenarios that typically crop up in the real world.
::: Java Language Essentials :::
Whether you're new to programming in Java or just want a refresher, this free tutorial is for you. With syntax examples, learn how to define instance methods, how to work with the built-in data types, and how to speak fluently (well, almost fluently!) in the language of Java.
::: What's New in JDBC 3.0? :::
The Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) API is the primary mechanism for the Java language to access relational databases. In this article, Josh Heidebrecht, from the IBM VisualAge for Java team, reviews the new features of the Java Database Connectivity 3.0 specification.
::: Long-Term Persistence :::
With Java 1.4, you can avoid serialization and save object graphs encoded as XML documents. Java consultant John Zukowski details and demonstrates the long-term persistence feature of the J2SE, version 1.4.
::: Tunneling through the Corporate Network :::
Java evangelist Malcolm Davis explores a safe and reliable technique for accessing corporate networks -- the use of Java objects over HTTP.
::: Server-Side Java Programming :::
The Java platform experienced a renaissance on the server. Understanding how the server-side Java technologies work, independently and with each other, is one key to the success of your Java applications. Java programming authority Govind Seshadri has dealt with some of the toughest challenges in server-side Java programming, and he brings his wealth of knowledge to this new moderated discussion forum.
::: J2EE Integration :::
No code is an island. At least that's how forum moderator Harry Evans sees it. In the enterprise, applications must work with other systems, and this forum is designed to help identify strategies for handling B2B and legacy integrations in Java
programs, and solve the problems that crop up when integration is the goal.
::: Take Control of the DOM, Part 2 :::
The DOM APIs are large and complicated, and it's hard to understand how to coordinate the HTML page and the weblet. In this second installment of a three-part series on working with the DOM, authors Gary Cole and William Phillips take you further down the road to DOM mastery, with an extended discussion of DirectDOM and weblets. http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/library/j-dom2/?n-j-6141
::: Take Control of the DOM, Part 3 :::
This guide to weblet security, the last installment in our series on weblet-based development, shows you what a weblet can and can't do by default, and how to get around the constraints of the sandbox when the situation calls for it.
::: Take Command of your Client/Server Apps :::
The Java programming environment offers several methods for you to implement client/server conversational applications. This article describes an approach that lets you exchange message (command) objects between the client and the server. The server interprets these messages and builds reply objects to send back to the client. http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/library/j-cs/?n-j-6141
::: Java Threads: Tips, Tricks, and Techniques :::
If multithreading has you stumped or you're in need of guidance, join this new discussion forum, moderated by professional Java developer and multithreaded programming expert Brian Goetz. http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/education/r-jforum.html?n-j-6141

Noted author and consultant John Zukowski expertly guides you through an extended tour of the JCF. This free step-by-step tutorial helps you
understand the concept of collections, and examines the interfaces and classes you need to use them properly.
::: Understanding the Java ClassLoader :::
One of the most powerful aspects of the JVM is also one of the most overlooked: the ClassLoader. This dW-exclusive tutorial reveals what exactly the ClassLoader does, and why it's important. To test your new knowledge, you'll build a ClassLoader that compiles your source code for you automatically.
::: Build Your Own Java Library :::
The Java language has excellent support for turning code into reusable libraries, and this tutorial teaches you how to take advantage of that support and build a library of your own. Learn the fundamentals of encapsulation and extensibility and how they affect the design of your library. Find out how to use the automatic documentation generator and ensure you've dealt effectively with debugging issues. Plus, you get the source for a simple Java library to digest at your leisure.
::: Server-Side and Program Debugging :::
In this free, dW-exclusive tutorial, learn how to apply the tools now available to help you debug your programs. If you're a Java developer, this tutorial is a must-read. Become just as good a debugger as you are a programmer!
