Enterprise JavaBeans Development  Course

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

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

L. Terblanche, Airvantage   (Lecturer: Lewis)

Audience: Is This The Right Course For Me?

You should attend the Enterprise JavaBeans Development course if:

  • You are a Java programmer and you need to develop enterprise applications.
  • You are already doing JEE development, and you need to know more about EJB.

Prerequisites: Am I Ready For The Course?

Before you attend the Enterprise JavaBeans Development course:

  • You must have attended our Java Programming course or already be comfortable with the fundamentals of the Java programming language.
  • You should have at least 1 year practical experience programming in Java.

You will find it useful to know more about the JEE environment. It is not essential, but it will help you to first attend our JEE Architecture course.

Please ensure you meet the prerequisites for this course before you attend. Read the importance of course prerequisites to understand why this is necessary.

If you are not sure which is the right course for you, please call us. We will be happy to advise you, based on your training goals and your experience.
