Lecture:  3

Year:  IV 

Tutorial:  1

Part:  I

Practical:  1.5

Course Objective: 

This course covers programming for both single system software distribution and across networks/devices. In particular, the course focus is on the advanced topics that a Java programmer will need to know so that they will be in a position to do commercial Java development both for single services and also for distributed processes across multiple devices. The course provides an in depth coverage of object serialization, Java Beans, XML, Servlets, JSP’s, networking, remote objects (RMI), distributed computing, and Java database Connectivity.
