Course Overview

Students who attend Mastering JEE Web Application Development will leave the course armed with the required skills to design and build scalable, secure, maintainable web applications - leveraging our extensive experience in the delivery of scalable enterprise applications with complex web interfaces based on JEE technologies.

Throughout this training, you will be confronted with common web application design problems and given the tools you will need to solve them, such as JEE design patterns. You will also be exposed to a range of JEE and web technologies such as Servlets, JSPs, EJBs, JNDI, XML, and advice on when and how to use them.

Students will also learn about the capabilities of servlets, their advantages, servlet architecture, and session management. Developers will also learn about JSP syntax, deployment, and application models, how to use Java as a scripting language, how to use custom tags, and how to build robust and capable web applications using Servlets and JSP.

The course begins with a discussion of web application architecture. A major part of the course is spent on Servlets and JavaServer Pages (JSP). It then covers interacting databases using JDBC, Java’s database access technology. The course includes an introduction to Web Services. The course concludes with an examination of JEE and web application security providing students with an understanding of the importance of defensive coding practices. Throughout the course, students will create code for an online store. Students will learn not only specific topics and APIs but also how to fit the pieces together into a complete application.
