Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

Before commencing this course, you must complete ISYS2089 Software Engineering Fundamentals, INTE2512 Object-Oriented Programming, and ISYS2077 Database Concepts.

Course Description

Java EE has been a pervasive platform for the development of Internet-based, transactional enterprise applications. It provides a robust development platform upon which to build flexible, reusable components and applications. It is a powerful standard that is well-suited for Internet-based applications because it provides many of the underlying services such as HTTP request processing, transaction management, and messaging just name a few.

In this course, you will learn about Java EE and related technologies that are used to build large-scale, multi-tiered, scalable, reliable, and secure network applications for enterprise. Major topics include but not limited to:

  • Front-end technologies: HTML, CSS, JavaScripts
  • Back-end technologies: Servlets, CDI, JSP, JSF, Web Services, JAX-RS, JAX-WS, Enterprise Beans, Persistence, Messaging, Security
  • Spring Framework: extension of Java EE platform. Spring provides several modules with a wide range of services to develop enterprise applications.
  • Hibernate: an object-relational mapping (ORM) tool
