Enhydra XMLC Java Presentation Development is written for computer professionals, with a special focus on application architects, Java Web application developers, and those who are just ramping up on Java and are excited about immersing themselves into Web application development.
Taking a task view wherever possible, this book is written to support those seeking a more elegant, maintainable, and flexible mechanism for building Web application presentations. While we spend some time introducing the Enhydra application server for those who are new to the topic of application server development, this book is focused primarily on the topic of Enhydra XMLC and how to use it to improve the lifecycle requirements of your Web application.
About the Author
David H. Young is Chief Evangelist for Lutris Technologies in Santa Cruz, California, for whom he writes technical papers, gives speeches on wireless and Web development, and serves as editor of the Lutris Enhydra Journal. David has penned magazine articles for publications including ComputerWorld, WebTechniques, and Network Telephony.
As the father of three daughters, he believes in going overboard with all his efforts whenever possible. So, in late 1995, he left his engineering career at The Santa Cruz Operation at the behest of colleagues Paul Morgan and Michael Browder, the original founders of Lutris Technologies. There he started by serving as president for 2 1/2 years, leading some of the consulting projects that spawned Paul's vision of a consultant's portable toolbox, later dubbed "Enhydra" by Lutris' Yancy Lind. David was instrumental in the proposal to turn this Lutris technology into a full-blown open source project.
