JEE Development Course

About this course

The JEE Development course will give you an overview of how the JEE technologies are organised and how they fit together. Java Enterprise Edition (JEE; now called Jakarta EE) is a collection of technologies for the Java platform that is designed to support large, distributed software systems in a corporate environment.

You will learn how to use Java Servlets and Java Server Pages (JSP) to build dynamic web applications. You will also learn how to use Enterprise JavaBeans (EJBs) to build Java systems with reusable components.
