The Developing Architectures for Enterprise Java Applications course provides students with knowledge needed to develop robust architectures for enterprise Java applications using the Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) technology. The Enterprise Java applications developed using the architecture as a guideline can accommodate rapid change and growth. By taking this course, participants gain an understanding of the technical context of the Java EE and relevant technologies, and strategies needed to create application blueprints that work well when implementing Java EE technologies. These strategies include effective decision making through the use of systemic qualities (such as scalability and flexibility), Java EE technology blueprints and design patterns.


Delegates will learn how to:

  • Make good use of Java EE component technologies to solve typical problems in system architecture
  • Derive software systems using techniques outlined in the Java EE Blueprint and solutions defined in the Java EE Patterns catalog
  • Address quality-of-service requirements in a cost-effective manner using engineering trade-off techniques
  • Describe the role of the architect and the products an architect delivers
  • List and describe typical problems associated with large-scale enterprise systems.
