What is Java EE, how does it compare to the Java language, should you transition to it, and which type of application would benefit from it? This course answers those questions by taking a 10,000 foot view of the Java EE landscape as well as showing some details of its programming model.
Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Antonio Goncalves. Welcome to my course Java EE: Big Picture. I am an independent developer, a book author, and a recognized Java champion live in Paris. I also talk about international conferences where I hope to meet you one day. So, you've heard of Java EE, but you don't know if it's the right technology for your next project. This course is for you. In this course, you will discover the Java EE platform, its pros and cons. Some of the major topics that I will cover include understanding Java EE platform from a 10, 000 feet high, then you will slightly dive into the internal Java EE architecture, its programming model, and its components. Finally, I'll try to answer a few questions so you can make up your mind. Is Java EE standard? Is it open source? Can I get some support? Will I be able to recruit developers in my project? Is the technology portable, mature? Does it integrate well with external systems? Is it scalable? Can I go to the cloud with it? By the end of this course, you will be able to answer this crucial question, is Java EE suited for my future project? From here, you should feel comfortable diving into Java EE, with courses such as Java EE Getting Started or Java EE 7 Fundamentals. This course will help you in getting the right answers to your questions. I hope you'll join me on this journey to demystify Java EE with the Java EE: Big Picture course at Pluralsight.
