  • Course Java EE Web Development with JSF : Content

    The course Java EE Web development with JSF course covers how modern state of the art Java EE Web Applications are built with the standard Java Server Faces (JSF 2.x) framework.

    JSF Architecture

    The course starts with the foundations of the JSF Framework which is built on top of the Java Web Programming model uses the MVC pattern with a Front Controller as central element. The architecture of the JSF Framework which uses a statefull component model on the server is discussed.

    JSF Request Life Cycle

    Next attention is paid to the role of the Faces Servlet and the different phases of the JSF Request Life Cycle. The role of the central configuration file faces-config.xml is explained and the navigation rules in JSF and the role of the managed beans are treated.


    Also the structure of a JSF page using Facelets, the use of expression language and the usage of the different UI components and custom tag libraries is discussed.

    Event Handling

    The handling of events coming from the UI elements is also covered. Next attention is paid to the validation and conversion of input from the User Interface using JSF built-in or custom validators and converters. Also it is discussed how the modern Ajax asynchronous request model can cooperate with JSF.

    Custom Components

    Finally attention is paid to the creation of custom components, facelet templates and view parameters.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.


    The intellectual property rights of the published course content, also referred to as an information sheet, belong to SpiralTrain. It is not allowed to publish the course information, the information sheet, in written or digital form without the explicit permission of SpiralTrain. The course content is to be understood as the description of the course content in sentences as well as the division of the course into modules and topics in the modules.
