Through hands-on examples, you’ll learn how Roo creates well-formed application structures and supports best practices and tools. Plus, you’ll get a quick-and-dirty guide to setting up Roo effectively in your environment.
Roo is a lightweightconsole shell that simplifies compile-time tasks. It improves productivity by enforcing correct coding practices and patterns and integrates with mainstream technologies, including ActiveMQ, GWT, JPA, and OSGi. And, when you finish coding, it gets out of the way so there’s no runtime impact.
Roo in Action teaches you to code Java more efficiently using Roo. With the help of many examples, it shows you how to build application components from the database layer to the user interface. The book takes a test-first approach and points out how Roo can help automate many of the mundane details of coding Java apps. Along the way, you’ll address important topics like security, messaging, and cloud computing.
