Explore the Java EE platform to build enterprise-ready Java applications

Java EE provides a standard set of specifications that can be used to develop standardized applications, independent of the vendor. Enterprise applications do not change that often, and hence we need a robust platform such as Java EE to ensure sustainability. To learn features and APIs in Java EE for building enterprise-ready applications, you’ll need to be familiar with programming in Java.

This  comprehensive 3-in-1 course teaches you how to develop enterprise applications using the Java Enterprise platform and modern APIs. It covers each and every concept of the Java EE platform with the help of practical examples making it easy for you to understand and implement in your own applications.

This training program includes 3 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.

The first course, Learning Java EE 8, course starts off by exploring the core Java EE components. You will then learn about HTTP endpoints. You will also learn how to map domain entities with JPA. Next, you will understand how interceptors realize technical cross-cutting concerns. You will learn to access external systems. Finally, you will learn about the asynchronous communication protocol.

The second course, Design Patterns and Best Practices in Java EE 8, starts off with exploring various design patterns. You will then learn to work with categorizing design patterns. You will also work with creational patterns. Next, you will explore different types of behavioural patterns. Finally, you will learn the implementation of key patterns such as Façade, Singleton, Factory, Decorator, and Observer in Java EE.

The third course, Java EE 8 Microservices, begins with explaining the benefits of using the microservice architecture. You will then learn to decompose and refactor monolithic applications into microservices. You will also learn to create microservice with the best Java microservice frameworks such as Payara Micro, Dropwizard, and Spring Boot. Next, you will learn to implement RESTful services using JAX-RS 2.1 and Java EE 8. You will learn to monitor, test, secure, and integrate microservices with each other and existing monoliths. Further, you will learn to integrate Spring into a Java EE ecosystem. Finally, you will learn to package microservices into Docker containers making it suitable to run in a highly scalable cloud environment.

By the end of this Learning Path, taking the challenge of building a cloud-ready, enterprise application in the microservice architecture will be a walk in the park.
