Advanced Java Web Development COMP 4613

Computer Systems Part-time Studies Course

Course details

This fifth-level computer programming course follows on from COMP 3601 or COMP 3656 and assumes students capable of writing significant software applications in Java and understand how to build basic Java Web Applications. COMP 4613 continues the exploration of JEE in regard to web applications and Servlet APIs. Students must provide their own current model PC, i5 or higher equivalent processor, 8 GB of RAM minimum, and 256 GB minimum storage. High-speed internet access is needed for online sections and for homework. Labs and exercises focus on web application design, organization and deployment using industry standards to develop and deploy advanced Java web applications using build tools such as Maven. Topics include: Web tier programming with variety of Java technologies such as JSP, JSTL, JSP EL, JSP custom tags, DisplayTag and popular Java web development frameworks such as PrimeFaces. Participants will create and use data sources, then practice how to encrypt and decrypt sensitive data, while it us in rest or in transit. Please Note: Attendance, participation in class and the BCIT Learning Hub are required. Students may have an average total time commitment of 14 total hours each week; 3 hours of class time, a 1-hour online component and 10+ hours of homework. Upon successful completion students will have a better understanding of Java Web App Development and are prepared move on to COMP 4656 Java Enterprise Edition (JEE) Programming. COMP 4613 is required in the Advanced Java Application Development (AJD) Associate Certificate and is an elective the CST/PTS Diploma and is offered once per year in September.
