Course: Java Enterprise Web Programming: An Introduction to Java Programming and Web Development using Framework


Java is a portable programming language which can be used any types of operating system. In addition to the PCs, workstations and servers there are now billions of Java enabled devices worldwide. This is why skilled Java Programmers are now in demand. Web based application is also an example of portable application development. That is why Java is considered an aristocratic way of Web programming.The Database Management and Administration (DMA) using Oracle Database 11g course offered from Information Access Center (IAC) is an essential database course for all database professionals who want to have a strong foundation and expertise in the industry's most advanced database management system, Oracle 11g.


  • To enrich the learners with the knowledge of Object Oriented Programming, which is different from structured programming
  • To provide a comprehensive knowledge of Java Programming Language.
  • To introduce the idea of web programming
  • To introduce the idea of Model View Controller Design pattern in Web based software development
  • To make the students familiar with frameworks, which gives the opportunity to reuse the codes for quick development
  • To provide the knowledge of the secured web development technique

Outcome of the Learning

  • The students will learn software development using java and they will get the preliminary lesson for programming java enabled devices
  • The students will able to develop web based applications and deploy it to the web server for commercial use
  • The students will be able to write application for dynamic web sites which uses database storages
  • Students will be able to work in the following areas where the java programmers could play the significant roles as programmers:
    • In the outsourcing firms which develops software for different devices
    • The service organizations which provides services through web applications
    • The financial organizations requires secured web based development and they requires lots of java programmer for enable their services to the users through the Internet and SMS
    • In the scientific community java is very much popular for doing simulation and visual representation. So the researchers must require the knowledge of java programming
