Although making the transition from the Java language to the C# language is almost trivial and would not justify a book in Apress' opinion, making the transition at the Enterprise level is a totally different story. In .NET, developers have ASP .NET, COM+, and the whole Microsoft .NET Enterprise server line. With J2EE, developers have JSP, Servlets, Enterprise JavaBeans, and application servers, such as BEA's WebLogic. How to move from the Java-based solution to the .NET-based solution is a subject that can only grow in popularity because of the cost savings possible on the Windows/Intel platform! After a very quick chapter on making the language transition between Java and C#, Paul Gibbons immediately turns to showing the developer how to move a J2EE application to .NET. There are detailed and serious discussions of how to port Servlet, JSP, or EJB-based applications to ASP .NET. Filled with lots of insights on the tradeoffs and benefits of moving to .NET, as well as containing the necessary information to make a successful transition, Gibbons' book is the first to cover an area that can only grow in importance.
