Web Development in Java

In this lesson, we're going to take a look at the structure of web applications in Java, Spring's role in web development, and the use of Maven as a dependency management tool.

Lesson 3

Spring Boot Basics for Web Development

In this lesson, we'll be learning how Spring framework operates and how to integrate with it to build flexible, maintainable application components.

Lesson 4

Spring MVC and Thymeleaf

In this lesson, we're going to learn how to build web sites with Spring! We'll be using Spring MVC and Thymeleaf.

Lesson 5

Data Persistence & Security

In this lesson, we will explore connecting our Spring Boot applications to SQL databases and the benefits of persistent data. We'll be using MyBatis and Spring Security!

Lesson 6

Course 3 3 weeks

Web Services and APIs

Explore the differences between web services, APIs, and microservices. Develop REST and GraphQL APIs, and learn how to secure, consume, document, and test those APIs and web services.

Lesson 1

Overview

First, meet your instructor Kesha and learn about the course. Then, learn a brief overview of web services and how they compare to APIs and microservices.

Lesson 2

REST APIs

Learn how to build RESTful APIs with Spring Boot, first by learning about the REST architecture, then how to use annotations with REST controllers in Spring Boot.

Lesson 3

GraphQL APIs

Dive into GraphQL, a query language for APIs. GraphQL lets calling clients limit the data response to just what is needed.

Lesson 4

Microservices

Find out how Microservices improve on the older monolithic application structure, including how to use Eureka and Spring Data REST for easy development and deployment.

Lesson 5

Security

Security is key to keeping your information safe - here, you'll learn how to add security to your APIs to keep out unwanted eyes and avoid undesired changes.

Lesson 6

Consuming SOAP & REST

Enable the consumption of SOAP and REST APIs within your own API to further speed up development time and avoid reinventing the wheel.

Lesson 7

Documentation

Learn about the importance of documentation and easily implement it with the use of Swagger within your code.

Lesson 8

Unit & Integration Tests

Build unit and integration tests to give you confidence your application continues to work as intended after making new changes to your code.

Lesson 9 • Project

Build the Backend System for a Car Website

In this project, you'll create a REST API to store vehicle data, while consuming information regarding location and pricing data from external resources. Also, you'll document and test your API!

Course 4 3 weeks

Data Stores & Persistence

Build applications that read and write to relational databases using both the Java Persistence API (JPA) and SQL. Use standard design patterns to make your persistence layer easy to test and integrate with a Spring Boot application.

Lesson 1

Introduction to Data Stores & Persistence

An introduction to the Data Stores & Persistence course. You will learn about persisting data in web-based Java applications.

Lesson 2

Data in Multitier Architecture

This lesson discusses Entity design and the relationship between data in the various layers of your application.

Lesson 3

Java Persistence API (JPA)

We'll be looking at using JPA to manage the state of our Entities for us. We'll learn about the concept of a Persistence Context and using an Entity Manager to change the state of our Entities.

Lesson 4

Connecting To Data Sources

In this lesson, you'll set up an external database, connect to external databases, configure and initialize multiple data sources, and configure data sources for unit tests.

Lesson 5

Persistence Without JPA

In this lesson, we'll be covering initialization with SQL, Data Objects vs. Entities, Data Access Objects (DAOs), JdbcTemplate, and Performance.
