I'm hoping to find a good tutorial for using Java for web backend development. The kind that includes code that can be modified, etc. and other hands on would be best. Hopefully would include some database connection technologies. I have an ocajp7 and have used Java for desktop and android development, including Swing and JavaFX. Any suggestions?
The technologies to look into would be
Servlets (for backends that are web-accessible, FAQ)
JSP (for creating web GUIs in conjunction with servlets, FAQ)
JAX-RS (for creating RESTful web services; it is based on servlets, FAQ
JPA (for database connectivity)
Common implementations would be the Tomcat server (for servlets and JSP, FAQ), Jersey (the reference implementation of JAX-RS, it can run in Tomcat) and EclipseLink (for JPA, along with an SQL DB of your choice like MySql or PostgreSql).
You're probably best off for looking for tutorials for these individual components, rather than one that covers all or most of it.
It's a tiny ad. At least, that's what she said.
