Building Web Services with Java Network Programming

Video description

Get hands-on with networking web services in Java Programming

About This Video

  • Gain expertise in the networking features of your own applications to support various network architectures such as client/server and peer-to-peer
  • Explore the HTTP/2 protocol in depth, including REST, HTTP headers, HTTPs, push and cookies
  • Develop more complex network applications: SOAP and REST Web Services

In Detail

Web services drive networking on the web and have been at the center of modern application architecture. Regardless of language or platform, understanding how web services work is a serious skill. This course explores web services: the concepts, commands, and tools that allow you to communicate and share data between applications.

You will learn how to use HTTP services in synchronous and asynchronous modes by configuring an HTTP client. You will also explore protocols such as SOAP, and REST and shares simple programming tips for writing web services that are as efficient as possible. Plus, you'll learn how to secure your communications across the web with security standards and create key-store and server applications that use symmetric and asymmetric encryption for client and server.

By the end of this video tutorial you will be equipped to handle WebSocket functionality supported by servlets in Java and will have mastered advanced concepts well enough to build web services, ensuring the audience is able to understand and secure network applications through encryption and by interfacing with other languages.
