Java 2 Enterprise Design Training Course

This freely available Enterprise Java 2 training course series provides a comprehensive and practical guide for building scalable, secure, Web-enabled, and distributed enterprise systems with Java enterprise technologies and the Java 2 Platform, Enterprise Edition (J2EE). The technologies presented in this training course can be applied when building e-commerce (business-to-commerce or B2C) systems, business-to-business (B2B) systems, enterprise application integration (EAI) approaches, and general distributed and Internet-based enterprise wide systems. All of these systems will incorporate systems assurance as a fundamental underlying consideration, including security, reliability, availability, maintainability, and scalability.

For each training module below, a link for text-only training content is listed first, followed by the link for computer based training (CBT) with Graphics, for which the quizzes are not freely available and Internet Explorer is required.
