This course teaches you how to develop web forms with IBM Forms Experience Builder.
IBM Forms Experience Builder dramatically reduces the time and effort that are required to deliver compelling interactive applications. It provides features and applications for creating, customizing, deploying, and maintaining forms, styles, and themes. The simple web-based user interface allows any web designer to quickly assemble a series of application screens, capture data into a relational database, and provide email notifications an integrated workflow. Forms Experience Builder also provides a ready-to-use portlet for integration with other WebSphere Portal applications.
In this course, you develop the skills that are needed to create and design multiple types of web forms for a wide range of companies and services. In hands-on lab exercises throughout the course, you apply concepts that you learn in the lectures.
The lab environment for this course uses Microsoft Windows Server 2008.
