Java Application Deployment

Course

This course introduces Java ecosystem topics that are necessary to develop production-ready applications. It starts by covering the construction and makeup of Java program artifacts. You will learn how Java program code is compiled, packaged and executed. Next, you’ll learn how to use Maven to automate and customize the build process, as well as manage external project dependencies. This course also covers the topic of Modules, introduced in Java 9. In addition to build topics, this course will also teach you to use the tools of JUnit 5 to write unit tests and evaluate code coverage. To expand our testing capabilities for complex applications, the Mockito library and test doubles will be covered as well.
