Course description

The Spring 3.0 framework gives Java developers a strong platform for creating websites and web applications. This course will cover many aspects of web development starting with Direct Web Remoting (DWR). From there the course will cover Spring and Struts which covers Model View Controller. After that the course moves on to WebFlows and testing with Unit Testing and Spring. The later sections of the course will cover the important subject of Security. They will cover Enterprise and Web security and then how to customize web security, securing Java code and user versus role based security.

Each LearnNowOnline training course is made up of Modules (typically an hour in length). Within each module there are Topics (typically 15-30 minutes each) and Subtopics (typically 2-5 minutes each). There is a Post Exam for each Module that must be passed with a score of 70% or higher to successfully and fully complete the course.


This an intermediate- level Spring 3.0 training course, designed for developers who need to understand how and when to use Spring in Java and JEE applications. You should have practical basic Java development experience.
