Course Outline
This advanced course shows JSP and servlet programmers how to build €oeModel-2€ Web applications using the Jakarta Struts project from Apache.  Students learn the Struts architecture and see how it captures a great deal of pre-existing best practice in Web application development.  They build applications from scratch using the Struts 1.3.8 code base, advancing through actions and action mappings, form beans, and request forwarding.  They use relational data at the model layer and learn to configure JDBC data sources under Struts.  Throughout, the course emphasizes the great facility in Struts of using XML declarations to replace boilerplate Java coding.

The course then shifts from these controller techniques to a focus on presentation.  Students learn to use various libraries of custom JSP tags:  the JSP Standard Tag Library (which supersedes a number of Struts tags), Struts HTML tags for form-building and validation, and the Tiles library for robust and reusable page layouts.

Two chapters near the end of the course treat issues of effective Struts development:  one focuses on €oeunder the hood€ coding techniques and one on best practices at a design level.  By the end of the course, students are building complex, internationalized Web applications that validate user input, handle error conditions gracefully, and make best use and reuse of control and presentation logic through actions, form beans, validators, business and persistence JavaBeans, and Tiles.

I realize that we are constantly dealing with technology, but I still think for a registration fee of almost $3,000, that a hardcover book should be included. I know that the option to print the book on a one-time basis exists.

This course provides an excellent overview and a bit of practice on the various functions of SharePoint 2013. I was disappointed at the number of exceedingly long breaks given after each module. I would have preferred less break time and more content to the course. Having never taken a SharePoint course with another provider, I don't know if this is the norm with all providers of just this one in particular.

I ranked the "Use of Technology" low because for Users who were remote the VM's that were setup were a little wonky. Could be very slow at times and then sometimes they needed to be refreshed to work properly with the lab. In some instances we couldn't follow along as replication would not occur fast enough and we would have our lab cut short (for us remote Users).

The instructor was good at remembering to acknowledge the online students even though he was facing a classroom of students also.

Insructor was not so good with the live examples. Also the handouts was not so useful

The trainer was excellent, very knowledgeable and had a lot of valuable experience to share. The problem was that there were way too many workshops that took too long and interfered with getting the maximum benefit from the instructor and the course.

This was quite informative. It was a great opportunity to have ‘real life’ discussions with certified PMs. The instructor had excellent examples and was able to share his PM experiences with us with concrete examples. In addition, this was a great opportunity to network with private sector/public sector PMs and develop a better appreciation of PM on both sides of the fence. Cheers, CL

As a remote attendee, it appeared the instructor paid attention to the "Attendee" and "Chat" windows only a few times throughout the day, so I was not confident that he would see if I sent a message or raised my hand during the course.

The chairs were not very comfortable and the material contained spelling and grammatical error (a few but still)as well as repetition of words.

Was a bit slow the last 1/2 day. Of course, for some, this was the last of a 4 day course (not just 2 days).

The room was excellent on its own - less distraction and no noise around you. There was no direction to the room when I walked in and therefore was not sure if I was heading in the right direction. We were not provided with the direction that there was coffee and fridge on the 3rd floor, and the bathroom floor was dirty.

Instructor was eager to assist but lacked subject matter expertise. Course time management was very poor. Content provided could have been delivered effectively in a one day course.

The course content was interesting; however, the instructor didn't have enough knowledge about Microsoft Sharepoint 2010 Development and wasn't able to answer questions without google search. In the future CTE needs to make sure the instructors have real on-hands experience and are highly trained in the technologies they are supposed be teaching.
