Duration 5 Days

This Oracle Commerce 11.1 course teaches web application developers the baseline knowledge and skills required to begin implementing solutions built on the Oracle Commerce Platform. It introduces the core technologies, capabilities, and services that support configuration, customization, dynamic page development, access to persistent data, user data entry and web services for Oracle Commerce applications. While the emphasis is on foundational skill building, examples and use cases illustrate how the baseline technologies are used in the implementation of essential commerce application constructs, such as the user profile and the product catalog, creating a cohesive bridge to follow-on enrollment in the Oracle Commerce: Customizing the Commerce Platform Rel 11.1 course.This course is appropriate for on-premises deployments only.A Live Virtual Class (LVC) is exclusively for registered students; unregistered individuals may not view an LVC at any time.
