Java Enterprise Edition 8 Development

Java Enterprise Edition defines a platform for multi-tier enterprise development. This training course describes how to use Java EE 8 to create Web applications, define and access middle-tier EJB components, create and consume SOAP and REST Web services, create full-duplex client-server solutions using Web Sockets, implement message-based solutions using JMS, and persist data to a database by using JPA. The course covers the latest techniques and APIs in the Java EE 8 platform.


What you'll learn:

  • Understanding Java EE architecture and components
  • Implementing Web site using servlets, JSP, and JSF
  • Defining and accessing EJB components
  • Using JNDI and CDI to manage components
  • Implementing message-based solutions using JMS
  • Creating and consuming REST and SOAP Web services
  • Implement Web Socket solutions


  • At least 6 months experience in Java
  • Familiarity with enterprise development would be an advantage
