Servlets & JSP Development with Rational Application Developer (RAD) v6 Training

Course#: WA1321

Students will learn to develop and test server-side applications based on the Java 2 platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) component model using the IBM software platform of products and tools. Develop and test server-side applications that use servlets and JavaServer Pages (JSPs) for the control and flow of e-business applications.

Topics  
 
  • Develop and test servlets
  • Develop and test JavaServer Pages (JSPs)
  • Develop and test J2EE 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
 
 
Practical Work  
  Students will have the opportunity to build a simple Java program, servlets and JSPs using RAD v6. Students will also deploy a J2EE application into WebSphere Application Server v6.  
 
What you will learn  
  After completing this course, the student should be able to:
  • Use RAD v6 as a truly integrated development environment
  • Build servlets according to the current Servlet 2.4 specification
  • Build JSPs according to the current JSP 2.0 specification
  • Build custom JSP tag libraries
  • Integrate servlets and JSPs into a complete J2EE application
  • Test servlets and JSPs using the WebSphere Test Environment
  • Deploy a J2EE application to WebSphere Application Server
 
 
Audience  
  Java programmers who build server-side web applications interested in leveraging RAD v6 to streamline their development cycle.  
 
Prerequisites  
  You should understand essential concepts of Object-Oriented Programming and be able to write simple Java programs with assistance  
 
Duration  
  Five days
