The course begins with an overview or related XML technologies (XML, DOM , SAX ,JAX, etc.). Having ensured mastery of the fundamental underlying technologies, we to study the design aspects of a SOA based architecture. This is followed by a detailed exploration of Web Service technologies and their use in a Java development environment. These technologies include JAX-WS, client scripting, AJAX and REST amongst others. In summary, this course provides participants with a complete, end to end, exploration of the design and implementation of an SOA architecture.
