JavaServer Faces Course Released

The Java development community has gradually been awakening to the potential of JavaServer Faces: a component-based standard for building web applications. JSF combines the best ideas from popular MVC web frameworks such as Struts with concepts of user-interface components and events that are more familiar to AWT/JFC developers:

JSF is positioned to become the dominant approach to Java web development for years to come. Capstone's Course 115, "JavaServer Faces," is written with Java and JSP developers in mind, and shows how JSF can help them organize their web applications into component trees (views), backing beans (models), and event handlers (controllers). The course teaches the JSF 1.2 standard, which is the required compliance level for Java EE 5 web servers.

"JavaServer Faces" also compliments Capstone's existing offerings in Spring and Hibernate -- in fact JSF, Spring (for its IoC container) and Hibernate (for persistence) make a powerful stack for web development. Contact Capstone to discuss customized deliveries of any or all of these topics.
