Programmer Analyst LEA.CK: Profile Full Stack Java

Full Stack Java Developer
International students need to apply four months before the start date

Overview

According to the TIOBE programming community index, Java has been the most popular programming language in the world since 2002. Java is the language of choice for creating applications, be they desktop, web or mobile based. This widespread use has led to a huge demand for developers with a strong base in Core Java and the frameworks used for building applications.

MCIT’s diploma in Java Programming focuses on both the backend and frontend of applications, readying students for various job profiles, including Core Java developer or enterprise application developer. Students are exposed to Spring and Hibernate Frameworks and user-interface technologies like JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. After gaining some proficiency in developing applications using core Java technologies, students are introduced to more advanced concepts like Servlets and JSP to build dynamic websites. Towards the end of this profile path, students are taught the basics of building web services: how to make your app interact with other applications and make it available to others as a web service.

<Download Outline>

Programming is the buzzword of the 21st century. In the last few years, we have witnessed the increasing influence of software in our lives and it has made us wonder about the art that goes into creating it. To give students a sound start, they are introduced to programming logic and basic concepts in Java. The course provides students with the skills required for analyzing a problem and developing the solution. Participants learn the basic syntax of the Java programming language and gain practical experience in executing code written in Java.

After getting familiarized with the core concepts of programming, students are introduced to the core concepts of Java, as this course serves as an introduction to the Java language and object-oriented programming (OOP) in Java. Students are provided with the skills for analyzing, designing, developing, and troubleshooting Java applications. Participants learn the syntax and constructs of the Java programming language, the concepts behind OOP with Java packaging, Java documentation, exception handling, Java libraries (I/O, utility networking, JDBC, etc.) and Swing.

It goes without saying that the way an application is presented to the end-user matters. Any developer possessing both back-end and front-end skills will always be in high demand. In order to prepare students for the industry, they are introduced to essential front-end web development languages, focusing mainly on HTML, CSS and JavaScript. Course content explores front-end web development best practices and the purpose of responsive web design. At the end of the course, students are able to create responsive web pages with HTML, apply basic formatting styles using CSS, and understand JavaScript for basic interactivity.

In this digital era, the increasing reliance on data has fuelled the need for proper data management.

In this course, students gain in-depth knowledge of SQL using Oracle Database technology. Participants learn the concepts of relational databases and the powerful SQL programming language. The course provides the essential SQL skills that allow developers to write queries against single and multiple tables, manipulate data in tables, and create database objects. It also introduces the DAO design pattern.

A more advanced approach to saving data is by using frameworks specifically developed for efficient data management, which reduces time and effort substantially. Hibernate is one such framework. It is a popular open-source object/relational mapping (ORM) tool that helps Java developers store and access objects. Topics covered include: Hibernate configuration, the Hibernate mapping file, inheritance, collections, associations, and the Hibernate Query Language (HQL).

The Spring Framework is a powerful lightweight application development framework used for Enterprise Java that can be used for providing layered implementations for any application, thus adding modularity to the application.

This course serves as an introduction to the Spring Framework, which facilitates the development of Enterprise Java applications that manage large-scale operations and data.

Students are introduced to the Spring Framework, the leading full-stack framework for Java EE applications. Topics covered include the Spring container, dependency injection, data validation, aspect-oriented programming, the JDBC Template, and the Hibernate Template. A web application is also presented to illustrate the use of the Spring Web MVC framework.

In the early days of the internet most websites were static in nature, but with the advent of technologies like Servlets and Java Server Pages (JSP), dynamic web pages can now be created that are easier to code and run faster within web servers. These technologies can take full advantage of the capabilities of the Java programming language by accessing any J2SE and J2EE APIs.

The Java Web Development – Servlets and JSP course introduces students to the most extensively used aspects of the Java Enterprise Edition platform. It explains the design, development and deployment of web applications using these core Java technologies.

Students learn to create web applications using Servlets, use tag libraries to develop Java Server Pages, and to understand the fundamentals of Java server side web development and the issues and approaches associated with these technologies.

The reason behind the widespread need to build web services for web software is their power to bring together applications running on various platforms and languages. We can now easily build loosely coupled applications that are scalable.

This course provides experienced Java programmers with the skills to write new SOAP and REST web services, and access existing services. With these skills, students are able to make secure web services using both Java-specific and language-independent security technologies. Students also learn how the Java APIs — JAX-WS and JAX-RS — deliver a set of powerful tools for developing a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA).

At the end of the program, students complete a real-time, industrially-simulated java development project.

COMMUNITY TESTIMONIAL

I came to Canada with no prior knowledge or experience in programming. I wanted to learn programming in an effective and short amount of time and found that MCIT could do just that. I quickly learned the latest concepts and put them into practice which I found motivating and valuable.
