Java EE Development with NetBeans 7 video course provides hands-on instructions that show you how to take control of the environment and make use of these features to make your Enterprise Java application development more efficient and productive than ever before so that you can concentrate on the important parts of your application.

Java EE Development with NetBeans 7 shows you how to develop applications using the most important and latest Java EE technologies and APIs such as JavaServer Faces (JSF) 2.0, Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) 3.1, and the Java Persistence API (JPA 2.0). The course is a practical guide explaining the various features of the NetBeans IDE related to Enterprise application development.

Java EE Development with NetBeans 7 covers all the major Java EE technologies, APIs, and the rapid development capabilities of the NetBeans IDE such as wizards and keyboard shortcuts. While focusing on NetBeans features, you will learn how to develop aesthetically pleasing web-based user interfaces using Java Server Faces. You’ll also learn how to take advantage of automated transaction handling and scalability via Enterprise JavaBeans, and how to simplify database access through the Java Persistence API.

By the end of this course, you will be able to develop Enterprise applications quickly and easily by taking advantage of several time-saving features of Oracle's NetBeans IDE.

Section 1: Mastering the NetBeans Editor

Significantly speed up development by taking advantage of code completion and code generation features of NetBeans


Speed up development by significantly reducing the time it takes to navigate through the code in our project


Quickly refactor Java projects without any fear of breaking the code


Understand the structure of the code by interpreting NetBeans' visual cues

Section 2: NetBeans Debugger

Take advantage of the NetBeans debugger to be able to quickly find the cause of code defects


View the value of any variable in the scope by inspecting the variable's values in the variables window

Section 3: JavaServer Faces (JSF)

Developing web applications can be complex; JSF simplifies the process


Pages in most web applications contain common areas such as headers, footers, and menus, which are shown in every page. Facelets templating allows us to define these common areas in a template, and have all the pages in the application simply use the template


Access the Managed Beans’ properties from a JSF page. Access a JSF Managed Bean from another Managed Bean. Use the Managed Bean's Action methods for dynamic navigation


The Contexts and Dependency Injection (CDI) API allows us to seamlessly integrate the architectural layers of our Java EE applications


Validate input using JSF standard validators


Create maintainable markup with JSF composite components


Easily create elegant web applications by leveraging PrimeFaces JSF components


Use PrimeFaces to lay out our web pages. Automatically indicate required fields with the PrimeFaces output label component

Section 4: Java Persistence API

Map Java classes to database tables


Develop client code to interact with the database through the generated JPA code


Map entity relationships (one to many, many to one, one to one, and many to many) in JPA code


Quickly generate JSF applications from JPA entities with NetBeans wizards

Section 5: Java Persistence Query Language (JPQL) and the Criteria API

Familiarize yourself with JPQL


Learn how to insert database data with the JPA Java API


Learn how to modify the JSF markup


JPQL Named Queries provide a standard way to declare JPQL queries, facilitating code reuse


The NetBeans JPQL editor provides a simple way of testing JPQL queries


Understand how to build queries with the JPA Criteria API

Section 6: Session Beans

Session Beans allow application developers to focus on implementing business logic, while the application server takes care of enterprise application requirements such as scalability, transactions, and security


EJBs in general, and Session Beans in particular, automate transaction management; however, transaction behavior can be configured via the @TransactionAttribute annotation. This video describes how transactions are handled via the @TransactionAttribute annotation


This video explains how to implement Aspect Oriented Programming (AOP) with EJBs via interceptors


Develop a stateless EJB by learning how to have an EJB method executed periodically, automatically, and without intervention
