Please contact us for information about prerequisites.

Expected Duration
3 day


In this lab-intensive web services training course you will be introduced to the core standards that enable web services. You will focus on what separates an ad hoc set of web services (not SOA) from a managed, vibrant, reusable catalog of enterprise services (definitely SOA). You will cover the entire spectrum from the promise of cloud computing to the grit of XML content. You will gain practical, hands-on experience with implementations of the Java XML and web service APIs including JAXP, JAXB, JAX-WS 2.0, WSEE, and XWSS. In terms of Java, you will focus on using the JAX-WS 2.0 and JAXB APIs, and implementations as the basic for generating and deploying web services and service clients.

Multiple detailed lab exercises are laced throughout the course, designed to reinforce fundamental skills and concepts learned in each lesson.
