Basic working knowledge of the Windows or Linux (Unix-based) operating system. The student must have experience with the following:
Creating directories, files and modifying access rights to the file store
Installing a JDK
Configuring environment variables, such as JAVA_HOME, for an Operating system
Launching Java applications and executing an OS-dependent script that launches a Java application.
Creating and expanding a Java archive file (the jar utility)
No prior knowledge of J2EE or the JBoss Application Server is required. Some familiarity with supporting Java applications with XML configurations, however, is strongly recommended.
