Java Web Developer: Essential Java with Servlets/JPSs, JSTL, XML, Web Services and More

COURSE OUTLINE:

Description

In this course, you will learn essential Java programming skills in preparation for building server-side applications on the JEE platform. You will learn what JEE is, what it means in terms of today's systems and architectures, and how to apply JEE technologies and practices in implementing and deploying robust, flexible web applications. This course is available for Java 6 or Java 7.

You will also receive our Essential Java & JEE Development Case Study that covers the entire spectrum from use cases to object-oriented design to implemented classes. This case study supplements the course and can be used during or after the course as a reference and a tool for reviewing and practicing what was learned in class.
