A new programming language is not going to achieve prominence on its own. Smalltalk was part of an environment; Perl was well connected with the operating system. One of Java's strengths has always been its responsiveness to the needs and nature of its environment.
One example is the coverage of the library APIs. Another is its meeting of the needs of the enterprise. For more than a decade, some of the most successful generic solutions have been database management systems and transaction processing system; large enterprise computing is reliant on them. More recently, distributed systems have brought significant benefits over and above the mere geographic--robustness, scalability, specialization and standardization.
Even more recently still, objects have shown themselves to be a good organizing principle for large or complex software intensive systems. They also ease the distribution of functionality. Finally we have the astonishing rise of the Internet, or more specifically the Web.
Clearly, bringing all these strands together in a coherent, server-side solution is a good idea--Enterprise Java.
The course lasts three days. Each day will start at 09.30 and finish at 16.30. The delivery is via lecture, exercise and discussion.
The days consist of two morning sessions and three, shorter afternoon sessions, with one hour for lunch. Time will be available after 16.30 for extended discussions or related issues.
Participants will be practising software engineers who already know and use Java. They will probably have attended the Advanced Java course. Participants should also be familiar with the basic idea of networks and the Web, of database technology and of transaction processing.
We recommend that there are no more than 12 participants, with the best results usually obtained when there are at least 8 participants. It is possible, by negotiation and mutual agreement, for more than 12 participants to be present.
