In this short and concise course you will learn everything to get started with web scraping using Java.
You will learn the concepts behind web scraping that you can apply to practically any web page (static AND dynamic / AJAX).
We start with an overview of what web scraping is and what you can do with it.
Then we explain the difference in scraping static pages vs dynamic / AJAX pages. You learn how to classify a website in one of the two categories and then apply the right concept in order to scrape the data you want.
Now you will learn how to export the scraped data either as CSV or JSON. These are some popular formats that can be used for further processing.
Unfortunately many websites try to block scrapers or sometimes you just do not want to be detected. In the section going undercover you will learn how to stay undetected and avoid getting blocked.
At the end of the course you can download the full source code of all the lectures and we discuss an outlook to some advanced topics (private proxies, cloud deployment, multi threading ...). Those advanced topics are covered in a follow up course I am going to teach.
Why you should take this course
Stop imagining you can scrape data from websites and use the skills for your next web project, you can do it now.
In this course, you will adopt techniques to help you build a graphical user interface, more specifically a GUI, with the Java programming language and SWING library. For the development of a graphical user interface, the most important are the operating systems Apple Macintosh and Microsoft Windows. Thanks to them, the graphical user interface succeeded in completely replacing previously impractical textual interfaces that were complicated for efficient use. The course is split into four sections. In the first part of the course you’ll have the chance to find out what a Graphical User Interface is and when it’s used. After this, you’ll also learn everything you need about its AWT and SWING libraries. The second section is dedicated to the basics of SWING components. You’ll get a complete picture of the classes JLabel, JButton and JTextComponent, but also about what and how simple and stylized control texts are used. You’ll also get acquainted with other classes such as JToggleButton, JDialog, JColorChooser and JFileChooser. You’ll be trained to print text as well as handling SWING controls using the NetBeans GUI Builder. The third section will focus on SWING events. During these lectures, you’ll see how to create event classes and interfaces for their listeners. After that, you’ll be looking at a lesson that’ll talk about connecting to the MySQL database through NetBeans. You’ll then work on SWING's competing programming, while the last part of this study unit will deal with the use of actions and JSwing timer classes. Finally, through the final section you’ll deal with advanced SWING components, that is, by using focus and linking controls, as well as connecting through binding methods.
This course will deal exclusively with web programming in the Java programming language. We’ll mention some basic terms, such as scripts, servlets, applets, JSP stations, methods for integrating Java code into HTML and more. In addition to handling basic concepts, the course will also focus on processing the most commonly used frameworks in the development of a web application: Spring web MVC and JSF. Upon successfully completing the course, you’ll be trained in the practical use of the most common programming language when creating web applications. In other words, the course will introduce you to advanced web concepts, the security and the efficiency of web applications, while these and many other acquired skills during the lecture will enable you to start a professional career as a web application developer.This course is just an introduction to web programming and web technologies such as Spring, JSF, JSP, you must continue learning after this course if you want to actively use one of these technologies. This course also prepares you for the ORACLE certification exam (Oracle Certified Expert, Java EE 6 Web Component Developer), increasing your chances of finding a great job.

In this course you’ll have the opportunity to equip yourself with the skills to independently create graphic user interfaces in Java FX. The first study units will focus on introducing you to the Java FX world, before moving onto creating your first Java FX application. Apart from this,during the first topic of study you’ll learn about terms such as Java FX properties, binding and observable collections. This segment will be followed by the basic elements of the Java FX UI, and you’ll also get to learn what a stage is, how to modify its dimensions and styles and why it serves as the foundation for creating every application. You’ll also learn what a scene is and how to create it, and what importance lies in nodes. The third section will focus on components called containers, also known as Java FX Layout panes. Hbox and Vbox controls will also be featured, as well as FlowPanes and TilePanes. The fifth section will show you the most important controls available in the Java FX graphical system, with all the important Java FX functionalities being presented and explained in the last study section. The goal of this course is for all the students to master the basic concepts of Java FX, declarative syntaxes, tools to develop Java FX applications and their practical implementation. Upon successfully completing the course, you’ll be able to work on Java FX APIs and develop apps with a graphic user interface using Java FX.
