NICF - Front-end Web Application Development with Java EE

What's In It For Me

  • Learn to develop web-based interfaces that are responsive on both desktop and mobile devices.
  • Experience building Java EE web applications.
  • Learn to deploy an application successfully into an application server.

Course Overview

NTUC LearningHub Course Code: NICF112

SSG Skillsconnect Code: CRS-Q-0030856-IT

This course helps participants explore building and deploying enterprise applications that comply with the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition 7 Web Profile. Expert Oracle University instructors will help participants explore annotations, Session Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB-Lite), Java Persistence API (JPA), servlets, JavaServer Pages(JSPs), Contexts and Dependency Injection (CDI), JAX-RS RESTful Web services, the Java API for WebSocket and the Java API for JSON processing.

Participants will learn to:

  • Develop web-based interfaces for both desktop and mobile devices.
  • Assemble an application.
  • Build Java applications.
  • Deploy an application into an application server (Java EE platform runtime environment).

By taking this course, you'll gain hands-on experience building Java EE web applications. You will get the chance to create web-based user interfaces using HTML5 and JavaScript along with JSPs and servlets. Web-based user interfaces will use AJAX to communicate with RESTful web services you create; data will persist using JPA and optimistic locking.

By learning through hands-on exercises via structured labs, you'll get a chance to explore EJB-Lite session bean components, which can be used with container-managed transactions. You'll perform lab exercises using the NetBeans IDE and WebLogic Server.
