What Is JSF?

Java Server Faces is a popular web application framework for Java. In fact, it is the standard web application framework for Java EE. Granted there are other web frameworks around, but most corporate Java positions expect Java developers to have experience with JSF since it is an integral part of Java EE.

Benefits of Taking This JSF Course

Knowing JSF can get you a job or improve the one you have. It's a skill that will put you more in demand in the modern web development industry, and make your software life easier, that's why it's so popular and backed by Oracle.

This course will help you quickly get up to speed with JSF. I will demystify JSF and help you understand the essential concepts to build a real JSF web application from scratch.

Build a Real JSF Application from Scratch

This JSF course is project based and you will build a fully functioning JSF web application from scratch.

We start off with a brief overview of JSF. Then I show you how to setup your development for JSF by installing Tomcat and Eclipse. Next, you learn how to use the standard JSF UI components for reading HTML form data and displaying output text.

Advanced coverage includes how to implement HTML form validation. I also show you how to display information in tables.

Finally, the course includes JSF and JDBC database integration. You learn how to leverage JDBC queries, inserts, updates and deletes in a JSF application.

At the end of this JSF course, you will have a fully functional JSF application that connects to a database. You can use this application as a starting point for your project.

All of the source code and database scripts are provided.

Compared to other JSF courses on Udemy

This is one of the few courses on Udemy that covers JSF 2.2. All other Udemy JSF courses are outdated and they only cover JSF 2.0 or 1.0. Don't waste your time and money on learning outdated technology.

Most importantly, this JSF course is project based and you'll build a real JSF application that connects to a database ... all from scratch.

I am a very responsive instructor and I am available to answer your questions and help you work through any problems.

Finally, all source code is provided with the course along with setup instructions.

Quality Material

You will receive a quality course, with solid technical material and excellent audio and video production.

This is my third course at Udemy. My first two courses were Eclipse IDE for Beginners and Java Database Connection (JDBC). These courses have received rave 5-star reviews and over 60,000 students have taken the courses.

I also have an active YouTube channel where I post regular videos. In the past year, I've created over 300 video tutorials (public and private). My YouTube channel has over 1.5 million views. So I understand what works and what doesn't work for creating video tutorials. I won't ramble on and on wasting time ... my videos are short and to the point.
