Fast Track to SOA and Java Web Services Using SOAP

Web services are designed to allow Web-based access to distributed software and business services.They bring a standard, open service architecture to component development that allows them to be accessed over the Web with standard protocols such as HTTP and standard XML formats for messages and service descriptions.This course will give you a thorough understanding of the current Web services architecture, and the technologies that support Web services including the new Java APIs such as JAX-WS and JSR-181.Topics include: SOAP, WSDL, JAX-WS, SAAJ, Soap Handlers, JAXB, XML Web Services, MTOM, Security, EJB based Web Services, and a brief overview of The WS-* Standards.

This training class will look at the current state of the art of Web services, what works and what doesn't work, and also at newer standards, and how they fit into the Web services picture.This course is hands on, and students will actually build and deploy Web services during the course.

All labs are done using the JBoss 7 Application Server as the server platform, and the lab instructions include detailed directions on using JBoss.

What people say about our training

I have been in training with Webucator twice now and the instructor has done a great job on both of my courses. The material is well documented and thought out, and the instructor did a great job of furthering the discussion through his own experience.

If you need to get up to speed on ColdFusion quickly, this is a great way to do so. Well worth the cost, both in terms of time and money.

Instructor was fantastic. Learned everything I wanted to know about PowerPoint and will be practicing tomorrow at work on already existing and new presentations.
Pam Tetley
The Adobe RoboHelp class was excellent. The instructor gave great instructions and very good tips. I'm confident I will be able to use the software to do my job better.
