When the student leaves this JSP training... the developer/student will be knowledgeable in writing Java Server Pages (JSP) and Servlets. The student will have a thorough understanding of the J2EE platform and be able to write applications utilizing the Model-View-Controller architecture. After this JSP training, the student will be able to expertly use the intrinsic Servlet objects, query databases, logically partition application code and understand the sophisticated architecture behind J2EE.

"Everything was well-presented! The instructor was very knowledgeable and very aware of what we were trying to understand." -Nancy Zotti, Duracell
