WebSphere Webexpirience Factory v7.0 Development
This course is designed to help web application developers acquire the skills needed to create and assemble multichannel applications easily and rapidly using WEF, formerly known as WebSphere® Portlet Factory. On Day 1 of the course, the audience is introduced to WEF through an overview of developing multichannel applications for desktop browsers, smartphones, and tablets, and then begin using WEF to create a simple application. More in-depth, hands-on experience is offered on Day 2 of the course, during which you will create a simple, data-driven application and a desktop application. On Day 3, mobile and multichannel enhancements are explored through discussion and hands-on activities.
