Comprehensive Free Java EE 6 Video Tutorial!

  • submit to reddit

Reading blogs, articles and books is still the way most of us learn new technologies. However, nothing really beats someone showing you how to use a new technology step-by-step first hand, which is why video tutorials always shine.

Java EE enthusiasts should rejoice that a lone Mumbai based developer, Ashitraj More, took the time and effort to do exactly this for Java EE 6! Ashitraj created an entire comprehensive free online tutorial broken up into a series of very digestible videos covering database design, JPA, EJB 3, JSF, JMS, JAX-RS and CDI. The tutorial starts from the very basics and teaches Java EE, API by API/feature by feature, through a series of progressive code examples that build on the one before it. The tutorial uses GlassFish, NetBeans and MySQL.

Here is what one developer had to say about the tutorial: "Excellent tutorial on Java EE 6. The author(Ashitraj More) leaves nothing to imagination, lots of diagrams for clear explanation. Waiting for his tutorial on Java EE 7..."

Ashitraj plans on beefing up his already excellent JPA coverage and updating the tutorial to cover Java EE 7. If you are a Java EE beginner, you seriously owe it to yourself to check out the tutorial. If you are already a Java EE fan, you can use the tutorial to effectively advocate Java EE. Ashitraj really deserves commendation for his creativity, passion, knowledge and hard work, so please do share a few kind words with him for his invaluable contribution to the community!

The tutorial is completely free, but you can choose to make a small donation to help support the effort.
