Spring Creek Parkway, in Plano. The new class, Java Web Application Development II, begins Feb. 8. Check out the continuing education schedule online at for more information.

"Java Web Application Development II" introduces students to the advanced features of Java Servlets and JavaServer Pages. Topics to be covered include custom tag libraries, Servlet filters, authentication, authorization, security and basic design patterns for web development. Students will also learn how to use several open-source tools including Jakarta Tomcat, Ant and Log4j.

"Java technologies are platform-independent and follow the premise of write-once, run-anywhere," said Ron Day, Java instructor at Collin. "Much of the software needed to develop Java applications is open-source, meaning it is free for the asking. It is very easy for the Java developer, once properly trained, to keep up with current technology at very little cost,” said Day.

Other Java courses are listed in the continuing education schedule or on the website at For more information, call continuing education at 972.985.3750.
