WEB APPLICATION PROGRAMMING WITH JAVA EE 6 – WEBSPHERE 8.0 / RAD 8.0 – GTWSP10 – 5 days

This web programming training class will show participants how to easily create quality Java web applications using all of the features of JSF. Also covered is an overview of Servlet/JSP technology for web applications, using EJB for business logic, JPA for persistence, and the CDI specification for dependency injection.

Programming Java web applications has been greatly simplified with the JavaServer Faces (JSF) specification. With the introduction of the most recent JSF 2.0 version this has been expanded even further to include many advanced features and solve weaknesses of previous JSF versions. Web application programmers that utilize JSF as opposed to the “traditional” Servlet/JSP model can spend more time focusing on the functionality of the application and less on the raw programming required to parse and validate request data and share data between web components.

This course is also available using Eclipse IDE.

Objectives

This class combines lecture with hands-on experience, and open ended discussion that will help the developer quickly understand how to program web applications using Java EE 6. Upon completion of the course, students will:

  • Have an overview of the Servlet/JSP web technologies
  • Develop web based applications using JavaServer Faces
  • Develop business logic layer using EJB 3.1
  • Persist data using Java Persistence (JPA)
  • Use CDI (Contexts and Dependency Injection) to perform type-safe dependency injection of components
  • Use the JSF 2.0 integration with CDI including the CDI support of “conversational” web applications
  • Define standardized data validation constraints with JSR 303 Bean Validation

Topics

  • Servlet/JSP
  • Web applications using JavaServer Faces
  • Various JSF page components
  • Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB)
  • Java Persistence (JPA)

JAVA EE DESIGN PATTERNS USING IBM WEBSPHERE AND RAD 7.5 – GTJ08 – 5 days

Patterns are widely accepted solutions to commonly occurring problems. For each pattern discussed in this course we outline the problem it is meant to solve and how to implement the pattern. The course is completely updated to take into account the advancements made in Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE). For pattern implementation, we cover Servlet, JSF and Struts wherever appropriate.

Why take patterns training from Web Age? There are plenty of books and articles on patterns in Java. Most of them are outdated and have not been modified for Java EE 5. This course is completely overhauled and discusses patterns in the context of Java EE 5. Existing books and material on patterns do not show you how to actually implement a pattern in code. Through hands on lab and example code we will teach you how to actually use a pattern in real life. We cover a wide variety of technological options when it comes to implementation. This includes, Servlet, JSF, Struts, JPA and EJB.

Hands on lab exercises are performed using Rational Application Developer (RAD) 7.5. This course is also available in other platforms, such as Rational Software Architect (RSA) and Oracle WebLogic Server. Please ask your sales representative for more options.

Objectives

Upon completing this course, the students will be able to:

Apply a pattern to solve a business problem.

Make applications more secure

Make applications more robust using proper transaction management techniques

In the end, students will be able to solve problems faster and the solution approach will be robust.

PROGRAMMING REST WEB SERVICES WITH JAX-RS 1.1 – WEBSPHERE 8.5 / ECLIPSE – GTWSP17 – 2 days

This course covers the design principles of REST architecture along with the details of how to implement these services with JAX-RS. This will allow students who take the course to implement RESTful services using Java standards that will be portable to many different Java environments.

Although many of the services in active use are SOAP or at least XML-based, an increasing number of services take a RESTful approach to data transmission. Representational state transfer (REST) is a style of software architecture that differs from the more traditional Remote Procedure Call (RPC) style of data transmission, instead emphasizing the importance of defining and retrieving representations of resources.

Labs are done using the new Eclipse tools for WebSphere.

Topics

  • Primer on REST
  • Working with REST Resources
  • JAX-RS

MASTERING JAX-RS REST WEB SERVICES AND AJAX CLIENTS – WEBSPHERE 8.0 / RAD 8.0 – GTWB06 – 4 days

This course covers the design principles of REST architecture along with the details of how to implement these services with JAX-RS. This will allow students who take the course to implement RESTful services using Java standards that will be portable to many different Java environments. Also covered are how to implement AJAX clients of RESTful services sending various data formats.

The Java JAX-RS specification covers how to implement RESTful services with Java. This specification is driven by annotations and can be leveraged from many different environments, including a Java EE ‘Application Server’. With the recent inclusion of the JAX-RS specification in the Java EE 6 umbrella of technologies implementing RESTful services with JAX-RS will become even easier.

It is also common to use an AJAX client with RESTful services. These clients are implemented in JavaScript so that browser-based applications can communicate with REST services to obtain data enabling a rich, Web 2.0 client experience.

This course is also available using Eclipse.
