Web Development Done Right
Author: Jacob Kaplan-Moss,Adrian Holovaty
Django, the Python-based Web development framework, is one of the hottest topics in Web development today. Its creator (and co-author of this book) Adrian Holovaty has built a compelling array of Web applications using Django, including http://chicagocrime.org. Django creator Adrian Holovaty and lead developer Jacob Kaplan-Moss have created this book as the definitive guide to the technology. Beginning with fundamentals such as installation and configuration, the book tackles sophisticated features of Django, such as outputting non-HTML content such as RSS feeds and PDFs, caching, and user management. Also includes a detailed reference to Django’s many configuration options and commands.

Python for the Java Platform
Author: Josh Juneau,Jim Baker,Frank Wierzbicki,Leo Soto Muñoz,Victor Ng
Jython is an open source implementation of the high-level, dynamic, object-oriented scripting language Python seamlessly integrated with the Java platform. The predecessor to Jython, JPython, is certified as 100% Pure Java. Jython is freely available for both commercial and noncommercial use and is distributed with source code. Jython is complementary to Java. The Definitive Guide to Jython, written by the official Jython team leads, covers Jython 2.5 (or 2.5.x)—from the basics to more advanced features. This book begins with a brief introduction to the language and then journeys through Jython’s different features and uses. The Definitive Guide to Jython is organized for beginners as well as advanced users of the language. The book provides a general overview of the Jython language itself, but it also includes intermediate and advanced topics regarding database, web, and graphical user interface (GUI) applications; Web services/SOA; and integration, concurrency, and parallelism, to name a few. What you’ll learn How to handle Jython basics like language syntax and concepts How to use the Jython scripting language for I/O, Java/Jython integration, and Jython in an IDE and databases How to integrate Jython with the Django web framework and even Spring How to develop web applications with Jython including web services/SOA, GUI considerations, and deployment targets How to conduct testing, continuous integration, concurrency, scaling, and more with Jython Who this book is for This book is for Java web developers looking to use a dynamic scripting language as an alternative to Groovy or JRuby. Other web developers who use Python and Django may also be interested in this book. Table of Contents Language and Syntax Data Types and Referencing Operators, Expressions, and Program Flow Defining Functions and Using Built-ins Input and Output Object-Oriented Jython Exception Handling and Debugging Modules and Packages for Code Reuse Scripting With Jython Jython and Java Integration Using Jython in an IDE Databases and Jython: Object Relational Mapping and Using JDBC Simple Web Applications Web Applications With Django Introduction to Pylons GUI Applications Deployment Targets Strategy and Technique Testing and Continuous Integration Concurrency Appendix A: Using Other Tools with Jython Appendix B: Jython Cookbook Appendix C: Built-in Functions
In this book, cofounder and lead developer James Gardner brings you a comprehensive introduction to Pylons, the web framework that uses the best of Ruby, Python, and Perl and the emerging WSGI standard to provide structure and flexibility. You’ll learn how to create your own Pylons-driven web site and attain the mastery of advanced Pylons features. You’ll also learn how to stretch Pylons to its fullest ability, as well as share Gardner’s unique insight and extensive experience in developing and deploying Pylons for a wide variety of situations.
Java professionals long for the productivity of a framework like Ruby on Rails provides without having to leave the Java platform. The new open source lightweight Grails Framework provides the missing link by using the best aspects of the Java-based Groovy scripting language as well as the Java platform itself. This Rails-like framework gives dynamic Java a boost; Java developers now have a viable Java-based solution instead of the non-Java-based Ruby on Rails, which can create more problems than it solves. Learn all about this in The Definitive Guide to Grails, written by the Grails project founder and lead. Grails is a fast-emerging area of much interest.
