This is an intermediate and beyond level web services training course, designed for JEE developers and architects who need to identify, design, and implement web services. We will explore and apply the terminology, the specification, the processes and technologies specific to web services.
Geared for experienced developers, Mastering SOA and JEE Web Services Developers Workshop is a five day, lab-intensive SOA and Web Services training course that introduces developers to the fundamentals of Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) and the core standards that enable Web Services.
This course focuses on what separates an ad hoc set of web services (NOT SOA) from a managed, vibrant, reusable catalog of enterprise services (definitely SOA). It provides an overview of the entire spectrum from the promise of cloud computing to the grit of XML content. The course presents a clear portrait of how a service orientation can fundamentally change the dynamics of how software is developed and "lives" within an enterprise.
This lab-intensive course provides students with hands-on experience with implementations of the Java XML and Web Service APIs including JAXP, JAXB, JAX-WS, JAX-RS, WSEE, and XWSS. In terms of Java, the focus is on using the JAX-WS, JAX-RS, and JAXB APIs and implementations as the basic for generating and deploying web services and service clients.
SOA and Web Services represent a groundbreaking evolution in distributed computing. The concepts are not altogether new, but the application of them, and the unanimous acceptance of core standards like HTTP, XML, SOAP, WSDL, and the various WS-* policies, has paved the way for XML Web Services and service-oriented architectures.
An overreaching concern related to services is security. Various aspects of security are woven into this course, allowing students to see the entire spectrum of issues as well as solutions. These include encryption, digital signatures, authentication and authorization assertions, and recognized application security issues such as Cross-Site Scripting and Injection attacks.
Students should have 1-2 years of working knowledge with Servlets and JSPs, and should be familiar with XML, Namespaces, and XML Schema.
