This course is intended for staff who'll be responsible for the installation, support and maintenance of Web applications written in Java. The course starts with a brief review of the stucture of Java, including the Java Runtime Environment, and a brief review of HTML before leading on to the main topics.

Apache is the most used Web Server worldwide; it's available for free (Open Source) and bristling with facilities. On the course, we download, install and test apache. We configure Apache, including virtual host support, access security, MIME type handling, and add modules to support extra facilities. We also cover error handling and log file analysis.

Tomcat is also Open Source. It provides a container for the deployment of Java based Web applications and can function both as a web server in its own right, and in conjunction with other servers such as Apache and IIS. We start the Tomcat section of this course by overviewing Tomcat, and then move on to sourcing installing and testing it. Tomcat is highly configurable at a variety of levels, and we'll study the deploying of Web Applications through their own directories, through .war files, and through the overall Tomcat configuration files.
You'll need some knowledge of the structure of the web and the operating system (Windows, Linux or Unix) on which you're going to deploy your Java application prior to this course. You can learn these skills for Linux on our Linux Basics and Linux Administration courses.

Apache httpd and Apache Tomcat are two web servers which, when used together, provide a flexible, stable and configurable platform for organisations to deploy web based applications written in Java. You'll find the two servers in use together on many large scale services - commercial, educational, voluntary sector, research and governmental.
