JBoss and EJB3 for Java
This course provides an introduction to JBoss, Java EE andEJB3, and is ideal for
students with existing Java programming experience wishing to enter Java Enterprise
Edition (Java EE) development.
JBoss and EJB3 for Java Developers is targeted toward Java developers who wish to
extend their knowledge to EJB3 and Java EE middleware programming using the JBoss
Application Server. This class is an introduction to Java EE web-tier and EJB3
development using the JBoss Application Server. It provides a hands-on approach to
Java Servlet, JSP, JSF and EJB3 development, deployment and the tools necessary to
facilitate both processes.
Basic Java programming skills and knowledge of OOAD concepts are required. The
student must have practical knowledge of, and/or experience with, the following:
The object-oriented concepts of inheritance, polymorphism and encapsulation
Java syntax, specifically for data types, variables, operators, statements and
control flow
Writing Java classes as well as using Java interfaces and abstract classes
Using Java collections
Handling Java exceptions
Using the JDK and creating the necessary environment for compilation and
execution of a Java executable from the command line.

Course Outline
This module provides the background and motivation that led to the creation of the
Java Servlet specification as well as an overview of the servlet architecture. It covers
basic HTTP request and parameter handling, HTTP Sessions, filters and web
application lifecycle events. It also covers the Web Archive (WAR) packaging, how to
use JBoss specific deployment descriptors for servlet configuration, and how to
configure Tomcat connectors.
Here we describe the servlet container (in this case Apache Tomcat). It includes a
description of how and why it provides the services it does as well as how to
configure your web application to properly take advantage of its services.
To properly make use of Servlet technology, an understanding of the HyperText
Transfer Protocol is required. One must know the difference between GET and POST
and be able to indicate MIME types properly to effectively receive input from web
forms and provide content in response. Additionally, we will discuss how Cookies
allow websites to maintain a relationship with its users by remembering them.
2HTTP Session
Here students will learn what the powerful HTTP Session can be used for and how it
can save time for your users by increasing the performance of your application.
This module extends your understanding of the Servlet by detailing its lifecycle and
further showing how one might tap into this by listening for lifecycle events and
covers how to implement a servlet filter to process incoming and outgoing data.
Here we go into depth on the power of JSPs. We will discuss Expression Language
(or EL) which enables developers to make calls into their JavaBeans directly from
their web pages and output the results in a very readable fashion.
We will also look at Tag Libraries and why one might use them? This module
demonstrates some of the functions available in the Java Standard Tab Library (JSTL)
and how to use them. We will write our own custom tags such that you will be able
to extend the JSP programming model to meet your needs.
4 Web Security
Building your web presence is important, but it can be dangerous as well. In this
module we will visit some of the security pitfalls and show you how to avoid them in
your own deployment. This includes discussion of locking down your system and
protecting it with passwords as well as implementing HTTPS using your own
security certificate.
5Building Applications Using JSF
This module will discuss the use of Java Server Faces (JSF). How and why would a
developer use such a framework? What advantages does it offer in designing and
building a clean, modular application? How will JSF technology help you reach
broader, worldwide audiences? How does JSF yield more maintainable code and
how can you extend its functionality to meet the needs of your business? These
questions and more comprise are addressed here.

6 The Java Persistence API (JPA)
This module introduces the Java Persistence API (JPA), its value and how developers
can take advantage of this leap forward in object-relational mapping (ORM).We will
see why this technology is so exciting to the industry and what it can offer you. We
will learn about how to properly map objects, what options are available for complex
relationships (including inheritance - a strength of object-oriented programming) and
will gain insight into how to make these decisions.
Entity lifecycle, query language, proper packaging and optimizations such as lazy
fetch will also be discussed here. Additionally, developers will see how annotations,
the modern and powerful Java language feature, help to make developers more
efficient as they do the same for their applications. However, XML overrides will not
be ignored as they retain significant value even in this annotated world.
7 Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB3)
This module provides a basic introduction to Enterprise Java Beans. It explains the
case for server-side components and the different types of Beans available: session,
entity and message-driven beans. It presents how to author each of these in an EJB3
world. The student will learn how to specify a local and/ or remote POJI (plain old
Java interface) for the simple POJO-based component.
It will introduce stateless session beans and stateful session beans, the relevant Java
annotations to create EJB3 components, EJB3 packaging and deployment.
8 Web Services with EJB3
This section will provide an overview of the architecture and implementation of Java
EE web services. The student will learn how to expose EJB3 and Servlet components
to enable remote XML RPC invocations to these components. The student will learn
the basic approach of integrating the JBoss application server with legacy enterprise
middleware and .NET.
