Description:
Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE 5) is a powerful platform for building web applications. The Java EE platform offers all the advantages of developing in Java plus a comprehensive suite of server-side technologies. This course tells you what you need to know to design and build your own web applications. You`ll learn the details of the key Java EE technologies and how to leverage the strengths of each, with special focus on Servlets and JSP. At the same time, you`ll be learning about the big picture of Java EE and how to design web applications that are robust, efficient, and maintainable. If you want to deliver an application on the web, you`ll find this course essential. All labs are done with the Eclipse IDE, and the lab instructions include detailed directions for setting up and using it. The standard application server used is Tomcat, but it is available for all major app servers, including GlassFish, JBoss AS, IBM WebSphere AS, and Weblogic AS.
