The Advanced Java Developer certificate program refreshes advanced Java developers and teaches beginners the Java skills needed to code, compile and run standalone object-oriented Java programs. Students will learn how to create and deploy SOAP based and RESTful Web services as well as work with the Spring and Hibernate frameworks. Object-oriented concepts and proper use of classes, objects, inheritance and polymorphism are emphasized throughout. Coverage includes building applications by effectively integrating Spring and Hibernate and utilizing Ajax on both the client and server sides. Students will also learn Test Driven Development (TDD) using NUnit and Microsoft’s Visual Studio including building unit tests using mocks, fakes, stubs and drivers. Students may choose from multiple IDEs for the extensive hands on labs, whether it be Eclipse, NetBeans or jEdit.
Upon completion of the Advanced Java Developer certificate program, students will have developed an appropriate knowledge base and hands-on Java development experience to pursue an entry-level Java developer position in the workforce or allow an existing Java programmer to prepare for expanded responsibilities for working with additional Java frameworks in their role. This program will provide students with advanced Java skills and technical knowledge, providing a sophisticated Java skillset to students that will allow them to stand out in the workplace. The Advanced Java certificate program provides a solid foundation of knowledge for the Java SE Programmer I exam, as well as more advanced Java certifications.
Personally-facilitated and on-demand learning gives students the flexibility to learn Java programming skills around their schedule. The Advanced Java Programmer certificate program includes videos, hands-on lab exercises and one-on-one facilitation to enable you to learn as your schedule allows. Java skills of students are built up via lab work that is performed on a dedicated remote lab machine that is provided for the student, and as the students progress to the later courses in the program, they will gain valuable experience with more advanced frameworks and techniques such as Spring MVC, Hibernate, and AJAX. Our commitment to helping create and improve Java developers' skillsets is made evident through each student's access to a personal Java instructor, who has years of real-world Java experience. Instructors ensure that your online Java courses are completed on time with full understanding of both the lecture content and the hands-on lab exercises related to the skills needed to advance student’s java skills. Instructors provide personal facilitation until program completion, and they are a resource for when you have questions or need assistance with lab work.
