IBM Course Code: WD370
This 4-day instructor-led course teaches students the new features of Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 5 (Java EE 5).
Java EE 5 represents a significant evolution in the Java enterprise programming model. It provides application developers with considerable improvements that enhance the development experience and, in turn, productivity. In particular, Java EE 5 provides simplified business logic development, simplified testing and dependency management, simplified object-relational persistence, and an enhanced Web services programming model.
In this course, students learn about the new techniques employed in Java EE 5, such as dependency injection and annotation-based programming. Students learn how to develop and test Enterprise JavaBeans (EJBs), servlets, and other components with the latest Java EE 5 specifications such as EJB 3.0, Servlet 2.5, JavaServer Pages (JSP) 2.1, Java Standard Tag Library (JSTL) 1.2, JavaServer Faces 1.2, and JAX-WS 2.1.
IBM WebSphere Application Server V7 and Rational Application Developer V7.5 provide complete support for the Java EE 5 specification. Hands-on exercises throughout the course give students practical experience developing Java EE 5 code with IBM Rational Application Developer V7.5 and deploying Java EE 5 applications to IBM WebSphere Application Server V7.
What You'll Learn
- Explain the Java EE component model
