Course Description

The Developing Applications With the Java SE Platform course provides students with practical experience in designing a vertical solution for a distributed, multi-tier application. The course takes students through the process of designing a multi-tier application in a case study approach – requirements gathering, analysis and design, and development of the key components of the application. Students will design the application with a Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern, implement testing with JUnit, create a Graphical User Interface (GUI) that supports logging, implement database connections with JDBC, create both client and server components, implement threading to enabling scaling of your application and use Remote Method Invocation (RMI) to communicate between objects on your client and server components.

The course features the Java Platform, Standard Edition 6 (Java SE 6) technology and utilizes the Java SE Development Kit 6 (JDK 6) product. The students perform the course lab exercises using the NetBeans Integrated Development Environment (IDE).
