Course Details

Spring is the most popular application development framework for Java widely used by millions of developers to create high performing, easily testable, reusable code without any lock-in.

Hibernate is an object relational mapping (ORM)) library, providing a framework for mapping an object-oriented domain to a traditional relational database. With hibernate you work with high level objects rather than directly using technologies like JDBC to interact with databases.

In this course we will develop a web application using these 2 best of breed technologies (together with Eclipse as your IDE, Apache Derby as the relational database and the Tomcat web server). The course is delivered in a hands-on tutorial style with more that 50% of time devoted to writing code.

You will learn how to:

  • Understand the fundamentals of Java Web Applications (Design, develop, debug, package and deploy).
  • Install, configure and use the Spring Framework.
  • Learn how to develop Java Server Pages (JSP) and use JSTL and JSP Expression Language.
  • Understand the benefits of an ORM solution over raw JDBC.
  • Install, configure and use Hibernate for the persistence layer).
  • Understand the advantages of Spring and become familiar with the Dependency Injection (DI) and Aspect Oriented Programming (AOP) services it provides.
  • Use Spring MVC to develop the user interface and get support for binding, validation, navigation and error handling.
  • Take advantage of Spring Security for authentication and authorisation.
  • Expose your applications functionality via REST web services to allow other users (human and system) to access it.

It is assumes that the candidate will have a good grasp of Core Java 5 or later (at least 12 months development experience) as well as some database knowledge (SQL) and HTML experience.
