Run time: 6 hours 42 minutes
Database programming and design are core competencies expected of every Java programmer. This code-oriented course moves you toward competency by providing a detailed overview of how to program for the two most common types of database systems used today: The traditional relational RDBMS systems (e.g. Oracle, SQL Server, and PostgreSQL) and the now popular non-relational NoSQL systems (e.g. Mongo DB and Apache Cassandra).
Filled with hands-on action, you'll work with three databases: SQLite3 (relational), PostgreSQL (relational), and MongoDB (NoSQL) and three APIs: JDBC, JPA, and the Java API for MongoDB. In addition, the course also covers the basics of schema design and normalization in RDBMSes.
