Advanced Java Training

Duration: 5 days
Course code: SS-JAV-010


This course is designed for experienced Web application developers and professionals:

  • System Designers
  • Application Developers

Experience with Java is essential.


The Advanced Java training course is designed for software professionals seeking to design and develop applications using the latest Java Standard Edition specification. Based on SciSpike's well-received training methodologies, the course provides for a rapid, efficient (and, yes, intense) immersion into advanced Java topics.

The Advanced Java training course is a five-day course and covers Java Foundation Classes (JFC), Swing Components, JavaBeans, Reflection, Network Programming, Remote Method Invocation (RMI), Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) and Java Security.

Participants will master the fundamentals of graphical user interface development using the Java Swing library. Using either Rational Application Developer (RAD) or Eclipse, attendees build, package, deploy and test JavaBeans. This course covers topics in distributed computing using both the Java network class library and the RMI framework. Database programming topics also include transactions, query execution with ad-hoc queries, compiled queries and stored procedure statements using JDBC. We also cover advanced JDBC topics, such as distributed transactions, scrollable result sets etc. provided in the latest JDBC API. The Java security model and the class library are also covered in sufficient detail.

The Advanced Java training course consists of a large number of fully worked out example code illustrating various concepts introduced during the course. The concepts are further reinforced through the use of well-crafted exercises at appropriate points throughout the course.


Our Advanced Java training courses are targeted to provide you with advanced programming skills using Java. On completion, attendees would be able to:

  • Master graphical user interface development using the Swing API in Java
  • Master network programming in Java
  • Effectively use distributed component based programming using RMI
  • Master component-based development using JavaBeans
  • Master reflective programming using the Reflection API
  • Build secure java application using the Java Security API and tools
