New and Updated Java Courses

The Java Curriculum team has developed several courses that are available through Oracle University.  The courses are available as instructor-led training (ILT), live virtual classrooms (LVC), and training on demand. Our titles include:

Java SE 7 Fundamentals - The Java SE 7 Fundamentals teaches students who have little or no programming experience about the Java programming language. The course teaches students the significance of object-oriented programming, the keywords and constructs of the Java programming language, and the steps required to create simple Java technology programs.">

Java SE 7 Programming - The second of two courses that cover the Java Standard Edition 7 (Java SE 7) Platform explores the core Application Programming Interfaces (API) developers use to design and develop object-oriented applications with Java.

Java SE7: Develop Rich Client Applications - The course takes students through the process of designing a rich client application in a case study approach – analysis and design, and development of the key components of the application using the rich set of JavaFX graphics and media API.

Java SE 7 New Features - This new features course delves into the major changes and enhancements in the Oracle Java SE 7 release. This course is meant for the Java professionals who are already proficient with developing Java programs using Java SE 6 or earlier Java SE platforms.

Java ME: Develop Applications for Mobile Phones - This course teaches students how to use Connected Device Limited Configuration (CDLC) and the Mobile, Interface Device Profile (MIDP), and the Lightweight User Interface Toolkit (LWUIT) to develop applications for smart phones. Students get to develop applications that access a mobile database, and leverage the Location and Payment APIs.

Several of our courses support the Java Certification programs, which you can search for on the Oracle University Certification pages

If you are interested in free Java training, we are posting new Java content on the Oracle Learning Library on a regular basis. If you want to stay current, subscribe to the OLL using the RSS feed.

Welcome to the Java Training Beat!

We are a group of dedicated training developers for Java, located in the US, India, and now Mexico. In this blog we will announce new training content and events that might be of interest to our readers.

In this first installment of the Java Training Beat, I would like to introduce three new Oracle By Example (OBE) modules I recently released and posted to the Oracle Online Learning Library.

Creating a Simple Java Message Service (JMS) Producer with NetBeans and GlassFish - covers how to create a simple text message producer with NetBeans 7 and GlassFish.

Creating Java Message Service (JMS) Resources in WebLogic Server 12c - covers how to create JMS resources using the console and WebLogic Server 12c. With this tutorial, you can replicate the results of the first tutorial in WebLogic.

Creating a Publish/Subscribe Model with Message-Driven Beans and GlassFish Server - covers how to create a publish/subscribe application using JMS. This tutorial includes a short case study that includes a JSF front-end application that sends a hotel reservation request object to the server as a MapMessage.

Hope you find these useful!  And do check out the Online Learning Library - we have a wide range of additional content posted and more being added every month!
