Java Servlets and JSP Programming  Course

Java Servlets and Java Server Pages (JSP) are used to build web applications using Java. This course will teach you how to use JSP to develop web pages that contain dynamic content, and how to develop servlets, which are small programs that run on the web server. You will also learn how to use the Model-View-Controller (MVC) architecture to divide a complex system into more manageable parts.

"The most enjoyable training I have ever had. This experience eeded, met and far exceeded my expectations."

V. Ngobeni, Standard Bank   (Lecturer: Lewis)

"The course has been an eye opener for me and would certainly recommend it my colleagues."

S. Lupuwana, BHP Billiton (Hillside)   (Lecturer: Lewis)
