11) Are JavaBeans J2EE components?
NO. JavaBeans components are not considered J2EE components by the J2EE specification. JavaBeans components written for the J2EE platform have instance variables and get and set methods for accessing the data in the instance variables. JavaBeans components used in this way are typically simple in design and implementation, but should conform to the naming and design conventions outlined in the JavaBeans component architecture.
12) Is HTML page a web component?
NO. Static HTML pages and applets are bundled with web components during application assembly, but are not considered web components by the J2EE specification. Even the server-side utility classes are not considered web components, either.
13) What is the container?
A container is a runtime support of a system-level entity. Containers provide components with services such as lifecycle management, security, deployment, and threading.
14) What is the web container?
Servlet and JSP containers are collectively referred to as Web containers.
15) What is the thin client?
A thin client is a lightweight interface to the application that does not have such operations like query databases, execute complex business rules, or connect to legacy applications.
16) What are types of J2EE clients?
- Application clients
- Java Web Start-enabled rich clients, powered by Java Web Start technology.
- Wireless clients, based on Mobile Information Device Profile (MIDP) technology.
17) What is deployment descriptor?
A deployment descriptor is an Extensible Markup Language (XML) text-based file with an .xml extension that describes a component’s deployment settings. A J2EE application and each of its modules has its own deployment descriptor.
18)What is the EAR file?
An EAR file is a standard JAR file with an .ear extension, named from Enterprise Archive file. A J2EE application with all of its modules is delivered in EAR file.
19) What are JTA and JTS?
JTA is the abbreviation for the Java Transaction API. JTS is the abbreviation for the Java Transaction Service. JTA provides a standard interface and allows you to demarcate transactions in a manner that is independent of the transaction manager implementation. The J2EE SDK implements the transaction manager with JTS. But your code doesn’t call the JTS methods directly. Instead, it invokes the JTA methods, which then call the lower-level JTS routines.
Therefore, JTA is a high level transaction interface that your application uses to control transaction. And JTS is a low level transaction interface and EJBs uses behind the scenes (client code doesn’t directly interact with JTS. It is based on object transaction service (OTS) which is part of CORBA.
20) What is JAXP?
JAXP stands for Java API for XML. XML is a language for representing and describing text-based data which can be read and handled by any program or tool that uses XML APIs.
