Course Description

Java Enterprise Edition defines a platform for multi-tier enterprise development. This training course describes how to use Java EE 7 to create Web applications, define and access middle-tier EJB components, create and consume SOAP and REST Web services, create full-duplex client-server solutions using Web Sockets, implement message-based solutions using JMS, and persist data to a database by using JPA.

The course covers the latest techniques and APIs in the Java EE 7 platform.

  • Understanding Java EE architecture and components
  • Implementing Web site using servlets, JSP, and JSF
  • Defining and accessing EJB components
  • Using JNDI and CDI to manage components
  • Implementing message-based solutions using JMS
  • Creating and consuming REST and SOAP Web services
  • Implement Web Socket solutions
