Are you new to Java, and need to get a handle on JEE basics? Need to learn Java, without the GUI and Swing? This five-day, comprehensive hands-on Java web development training course will teach you essential Java programming skills, in preparation for building server-side applications on the JEE platform. Geared for developers who have prior working knowledge of object-oriented programming languages such as C++, this course will teach students 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.

In addition to the normal exercises that are liberally sprinkled throughout the course, all students 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 and/or after the course as a reference and a tool for reviewing and practicing what was learned in class.

Understand not only the fundamentals of the Java language, but also its importance, uses, strengths and weaknesses
Understand the basics of the Java language and how it relates to OO programming and the Object Model
Learn to use Java exception handling and logging features
Understand and use classes, inheritance and polymorphism
Understand and use collections, generics, autoboxing, and enumerations
Use the JDBC API for database access
Work with annotations
Design and build robust and maintainable web applications
Create dynamic HTML content with Servlets and Java Server Pages
Make Servlets and JSP work together cleanly
