Welcome to J2EE: Web Component Development. This course will help you to build upon your background knowledge in Java and gain the essential skills you need to develop Web components in an enterprise environment. Additionally, the course offers you a job-related approach to the Web application development process. Finally, it provides you with the basic expertise required to develop functionally sound and efficient Java 2 Enterprise Edition Web components.
Course Objective: You will prepare to develop J2EE Web applications. You will discover how to create the two primary Web components. Next, you will discover how to maintain client state and how you can use this information to track users through your application. You will use a JavaBean in your Web application and create and use a JSP custom tag library. Next, you will learn how to incorporate security and filters into your application. Finally, you will explore some J2EE design patterns and database integration into a Web application.
Target Student: Students should be skilled and experienced in using J2SE and be familiar with SQL. Students should have knowledge of database structure and terminology. Students should understand object-oriented programming.
