In-depth lectures cover the skills and knowledge students need to customize an IBM WebSphere Commerce v7 site. Lecture topics include an introduction to the integrated development environment for WebSphere Commerce, which is built upon Rational Application Developer v7. From that starting point, students develop and configure storefronts, both with and without Web 2.0 capabilities enabled. In addition, students learn how to build custom business logic and data handling through the command framework, business object document (BOD) processing framework, Enterprise JavaBeans (EJBs), and the data service layer. Students are also introduced to many of the new features provided by WebSphere Commerce v7, including how to develop for the IBM Management Center with related activities like customizing precision marketing, promotions, Mobile Commerce, and Social Commerce. To complete the experience, students learn the basics of integrating WebSphere Commerce with other systems in a service-oriented architecture (SOA), including payments and Web services. Hands-on lab exercises provided throughout the course reinforce lecture content and let students gain practical experience designing and implementing customized WebSphere Commerce solutions. Students practice their newly developed WebSphere Commerce skills by performing tasks such as creating new views and commands, extending WebSphere Commerce capabilities by building custom projects in the persistence layer, deploying Web services, and developing new features for the IBM Management Center.
