The Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) architecture is explored starting with the
presentation layer which includes the servlets and Java Server Pages (JSP).
Java Server Faces (JSF) is also covered as part of the presentation layer.
The business layer is examined using the enterprise java beans (EJB).
The persistence layer is studied through the Java Persistence API (JPA) and the
Hibernate framework. Jave based web services are explored using JAX-WS (SOAP based) and
JAX-RS (REST based) APIs. The Spring framework is compared as an alternative architecture.
