EJB Development  Course

Jakarta Enterprise Beans (EJB; formerly Enterprise JavaBeans) make it easier to build Java systems with reusable components. EJBs also make your system more robust and better able to handle changes in scale. This course will teach you how to write different kinds of EJBs: session beans to control the application business logic, entity beans to handle persistent business data, and message-driven beans to allow different systems to communicate with each other.

"Thanks very much. One of the best course experiences ever. I feel well-educated in EJB 3.1 having completed the course and I will be able to use what I have learned in my working environment."

S. Nell, Core Freight Systems   (Lecturer: Lewis)

"Great atmosphere, knowledgeable lecturers, topical content and beautiful venue. The perfect combination!"

L. Terblanche, Airvantage   (Lecturer: Lewis)

"The lecturer explains work exceptionally well & will explain anything you are not sure about, even if it is not part of the course content."
