This course is intended for experienced programmers who have knowledge and experience programming in a Web application environment. Students should have skills developing and deploying Java servlets and JavaServer Pages in dynamic Web applications.

In addition, students should have a basic understanding of IBM VisualAge for Java or have taken the IBM VisualAge for Java course, we also offer our self-study VisualAge for Java module VAJW).

This course is intended for WebSphere Commerce Developers, Java Programmers, WebSphere Application Server Programmers, and Database Developers who are involved in developing Java components for store business logic and designing extensions to the data model to support store business processes.

Because these roles have similar prerequisite knowledge and skills (programming SQL, Java, Javascript, HTML, XML), the responsibilities have been combined into a new role called Store Programmer
