Web service technologies are fundamentally changing the software industry, making the role of enterprise IT organizations more strategic, and recasting the software vendor-consumer relationship. Web services are also being hailed by CEOs, CIOs, and CTOs as the next-generation vehicle for driving topline growth and controlling bottom lines. But, simply jumping on the Web services bandwagon won't lead to corporate success. Web services are simply a platform; how companies implement a solution using this new technology will determine their success, and ultimately their return on investment (ROI).
The next stage in the evolution of enterprise applications will be based on Web services. Web services are pieces of application functionality that are exported through a set of standard application programming interfaces (APIs), and allow applications to be constructed by locating and binding to the exported functionality. More interestingly, multiple Web services can be coordinated together in unique combinations in an Internet application to implement value-added services for users. In this tutorial, we describe the design, development, deployment, and maintenance of enterprise applications based on Web services. We also describe the emerging mobile enterprise environments, the unique issues inherent to these environments, and the challenges in developing mobile applications based on loosely coupled Web services. In addition to a broad coverage of the fundamental topics, industry standards, and technologies (e.g., Java, J2EE, application servers, XML, SOAP, WSDL, UDDI) the development of Web services and applications based on Web services, the tutorial will provide practical, step-by-step instruction for the development and deployment of enterprise-class Web services and applications based on standard Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE) application servers and SOAP servers. We also touch on .Net technologies in support of enterprise Web services.
Developing applications for the Internet and corporate intranets is fundamentally different from developing traditional applications for personal computers. There is emerging two primary camps for this important class of applications - those based on Microsoft's .Net technologies, and those based on Java technologies. This tutorial provides a broad and complete coverage of the Java technologies involved in the development of enterprise-class applications based on Java technologies, with particular emphasis on developing applications based on Web services.
The primary objective of this tutorial is to give attendees a practical exposure to developing real-world Internet applications with state-of-the-art J2EE application servers and associated technologies.
This tutorial assumes that attendees have a basic understanding of computer programming.
