Jakarta EE 10 Web Profile Fundamentals

by Kevin Jones

Jakarta EE 10 Web Profile is one of the most popular server-side frameworks in use today. This course will teach you the fundamentals of developing web apps using Servlets, JSPs, and other parts of the Jakarta Web Profile.

What you'll learn

Jakarta Web Profile 10.0 is the latest in a long line of JEE (previously J2EE) specifications that cover server-side, or enterprise, Java development. In this course, Jakarta EE 10 Web Profile Fundamentals, you will learn to write server-side web applications in Java. This course covers the Jakarta Web Profile, which specifies how Servlets, Jakarta Server Pages (JSPs), and other Java web technologies work. These fundamentals underpin many of the Java web frameworks that exist today such as Spring MVC. First, you will write an MVC-style application which uses a Servlet as its main controller, so you will understand how to write and deploy servlets. Then, you will see how to use JSPs as the view technology within this framework, and use the 'expression language' and 'tag libraries' to make these pages dynamic. Next, you will explore how to use sessions to manage users and cookies to manage persistent user related state. After that, you will understand how to use servlet filters and events to track and respond to incoming HTTP requests and transform the data in those requests and responses. Finally, you will see how to write asynchronous servlets to help with scalability on the server side. By the end this course, you’ll know how to use Servlets, JSPs, and all the other related technologies effectively in your code.

He soon realized the multiuser systems were not for him after discovering the delights of dBase IV on IBM PCs. From here it was all downhill as he became addicted to C and the Windows API.
