Overview

Students will learn to develop and test server-side web applications based on the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) component model using Eclipse tools. Develop and test server-side applications that use Servlets and JavaServer Pages (JSPs) for the control and flow of e-business applications.

Audience

Java programmers who build server-side web applications interested in leveraging Eclipse to streamline their development cycle.

Skills Gained

  • Develop and test Servlets
  • Develop and test JavaServer Pages (JSPs)
  • Develop and test Java EE applications following the Model/View/Controller architecture
  • Integrate business logic using Java Beans and Java Database Connectivity (JDBC)
  • Apply best practices to Servlet and JSP development

After completing this course, the student should be able to:

  • Use Eclipse as a truly, integrated development environment
  • Build Servlets according to the current Servlet 3.0 specification
  • Build JSPs according to the current JSP 2.2 specification
  • Build custom JSP tag libraries
  • Integrate Servlets and JSPs into a complete Java EE application
  • Test Servlets and JSPs using Eclipse

Prerequisites

You should understand essential concepts of Object-Oriented Programming and be able to write simple Java programs with assistance.
