Course Description

Course description

The Spring framework is an application framework that provides a lightweight container that supports the creation of simple to complex components in a non-invasive fashion. The Spring flexibility and transparency is congruent and supportive of incremental development and testing. The framework structure supports the layering of functionality such as persistence, transactions, view-oriented frameworks, and enterprise systems and capabilities. Spring makes JavaEE development easier. Spring simplifies common tasks and encourages good design based on programming to interfaces. Spring makes your application easier to configure and reduces the need for many JEE design patterns. Spring puts the OO design back into your JEE application. This Spring course will take an in-depth tour of the basic Spring framework, initially examining concepts such as Inversion of Control and Dependency Injection, and then working with the container and basic components. The improved Spring 3.0 configuration management options centered on the Spring Expression Language (SPEL) is covered. The course then moves into the areas of persistence and transactions, looking at various options including both JDBC and Hibernate. You will then look at options for handling the view portion of MVC web architecture.

Each LearnNowOnline training course is made up of Modules (typically an hour in length). Within each module there are Topics (typically 15-30 minutes each) and Subtopics (typically 2-5 minutes each). There is a Post Exam for each Module that must be passed with a score of 70% or higher to successfully and fully complete the course.


Prerequisites

This an intermediate- level Spring 3.0 training course, designed for developers who need to understand how and when to use Spring in Java and JEE applications. You should have practical basic Java development experience.
