The Developing Applications for the Java EE Platform course provides students with the knowledge to build and deploy enterprise applications that comply with Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 6 technology standards. The enterprise components presented in this course include Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) technology, the Java Persistence API, servlets, and JavaServer Pages (JSP) technology, JavaServer Faces (JSF), RESTful and SOAP web services, and the Java technology clients that use them. Students gain hands-on experience through labs that build an end-to-end, distributed business application.

The labs explore session EJB components, which implement the Session Facade pattern and provide a front-end to entity components using the Java Persistence API. The labs also explore message-driven EJB components, which act as Java Message Service (JMS) consumers. Students create user interfaces using servlets, JSP technology (JSP pages), and JavaServer Faces (JSF). Basic web services using SOAP and RESTful techniques will be created. Students learn how to assemble an application and how to deploy an application into an application server (Java EE platform runtime environment). Students perform the course lab exercises using NetBeans Integrated Development Environment (IDE).

Students who can benefit from this course are:

•Sun Certified Java technology programmers who want to develop enterprise applications that conform to the Java EE platform standards
•Students with Java Programming experience interested in broad overview of the Java EE platform


To succeed fully in this course, students should be:

•Experienced with the Java programming language
•Familiar with object serialization
•Familiar with relational database theory and the basics of structured query language (SQL)
•Familiar with the use of an IDE


Upon completion of this course, students should be able to:

•Describe the application model for the Java EE platform and the context for the model
•Select the correct Java EE Profile for a given application
•Develop and run an EJB technology application
•Develop basic Java Persistence API entity classes to enable database access
•Develop a web-based user interface using Servlets, JSPs, and JSF
•Develop simple web services for the Java EE platform
