In the course Java for Application Managers the foundations of the Java SE and EE platform, the Java language and the options to manage and monitor Java software are discussed.
The participants become familiar with Java applications and their data types, the object oriented nature of Java, the packaging of Java applications, the principles of garbage collection and the Java thread model.
A key module in the course treats the various logging mechanisms in Java software and the configuration of logging.
Also attention is paid to principles of exception handling in Java and how stack traces can be interpreted.
The Java EE standard is discussed and attention is paid to Java EE Web Components like servlets and JSP's. In this respect the reference implementation for Web Components Tomcat is treated.
The participants also become familiar with Java Management Extensions (JMX) as a standard and API for the (remote) management and monitoring of Java Applications. The principles of memory management in Java and the various options to configure garbage collection are discussed as well.
The final subject of the course is the performance monitoring and performance tuning of Java applications. Optional appendixes about Java Database Connectivity (JDBC) and the Java Messaging Service (JMS) are provided and will be discussed if this is the desire of the class.
The course Java for Application Managers is intended for persons responsible for the monitoring, management and troubleshooting of Java Applications and for other interested persons.
General basic knowledge of computer systems and software development. Programming experience is an advantage in following this course.
In this hands-on course the theory is treated by means of presentation slides and is interchanged with exercises. Demos are used to clarify the theory. The course material is in English. The course times are from 9.30 up and to 16.30.
Participants receive an official certificate Java for Application Managers after successful completion of the course.

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.
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.
