Collin Offers Java Courses


April 15, 2005 - This spring, Collin County Community College District (Collin) is offering a new advanced-level Java programming class at its Courtyard Center for Professional and Economic Development (CYC), 4800 Preston Park Boulevard in Plano. The new class, Introduction to Java Server Faces, begins May 3. Check out the continuing education schedule online at for more information.

JavaServer Faces (JSF) is a new technology that allows for the development of true component-based web applications. JavaServer Faces have been approved for inclusion into the standard J2EE specification in future releases and will become a popular technology for the future web application development. As an alternative to the Struts framework, the JSF API provides a rich set of user-interface components, allows client event handling on the server and provides validation, page navigation and internationalization support. JSF also provides custom tag libraries for connecting user-interface components to server-side objects. The class Java Web Application Development II is a prerequisite.

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.
