Doing More With Java helps you move from introductory Java to more powerful tools and concepts. As you go through the book you get to where you can connect an Android app to a Hibernate/Tomcat server. Unlike many programming books, this one helps you gain all the skills to create mobile connected apps. Using HTTP from Android with JSON, Hibernate, and MySQL a complete JSON Web Service can be created and consumed.
The tone of the book is intended to be light rather than pedantic and hints and tips based on the author’s life experience are included.
