    Overview of the Training Series


    Features of the Training Series


    Java Security Module


    Java for C/C++ Programmers Module


    Resources


    Summary

    Price: $995 annual subscription / single developer
    Supported Platforms: Window 95 and Windows NT

    The MindQ Developer Training for Java is a professional quality suite of multimedia training modules that covers

    all aspects of acquisition and application of the Java language. At the recent Java Internet Business Expo (JIBE)

    in New York, MindQ's Java training series was announced as a finalist for the Editor's Choice award in the category

    of ``Java Training.'' It was the only interactive desktop training course announced as a finalist.

    Her e is the summary of the modules included in the Developer Training for Java. Note that those with a dart are

    available at no cost from MindQ's Web site .



    Features of the Training Series
    When you start the MindQ tutorial, you see a screen that shows the tutorial's content. Then you have the option to

    learn how to use the tutorial. After you have worked through the tutorial introduction, you head straight into the

    contents of the lesson.

    Navigation through the tutorial screens is a snap. You can use the contents screen and the mouse to move between

    lessons. Each lesson contains several subtopics. To move sequentially through the subtopics, you hit the space-bar

    or right-click the mouse. Finally, other navigation options are shown in the navigation bar in the left-hand corner

    of the screen.

    The multimedia presentation of the Java material is ex cellent. You notice immediately the high production quality

    of these tutorial modules. The application window is easily navigable while remaining informative.

    The MindQ training series has an impressive list of features:

    Comprehensive reference
    Underlined keywords, advanced user reference, URL hyperlinks that launch your browser.
    Multimedia
    Audio and scrolling text, graphics, animation, video clips.
    User-defined options
    Attach notes to slides, extract notes to a text file, preferences for audio/text, set-up browser to load

    hyperlinks.
    Instructional Topics
    Different types of presentation methods, conceptual and interactive to hands-on application of principles.
    Self Assessment
    Reality Checks, or self-assessment quizzes embedded within the lessons.
    For this review, I examined two modules of the MindQ Developer Training for Java. ``Java Security'' is a conceptual

    module that describes the theory and practice of using and writing Java applets in a World Wide Web setting. The

    ``Java for C/C++ Programmers'' module is application module. Its goal is to ease the transition to Java from a C/C

    ++ background. Both provided a good contrast of the training techniques employed by the MindQ developers -- the

    ``Java Security'' module is conceptual, while the ``Java for C/C++ Programmers'' takes the hands-on approach to

    learning the Java language.

    Java Security Module
    Audience:
    New Java users, MIS, Applet Developers, Corporations that allow Internet access by employees.

    Technicality: Low (2 of 5) (See our Rating Scale )

    Summary:
    Balanced presentation of the current state of Java security. Content written by computer science professors from

    Princeton. Includes practical advice on Internet risk assessment and exact steps a company could take to p rotect

    its intellectual property and data from rogue Java programmers. MIS managers, non-technical staff will reap many

    benefits. Novice Internet programmers also can learn the details of the Java security model.

    If you would like to demo Developer Training for Java, you can download the ``Java Security Module'' at no cost

    from MindQ's Java Training page .

    Lesson 1 - Intro to Java Security


    Architecture of Java


    Java Security Model


    Browser-dependent security


    Risks of using Java



    Lesson 2 - Hostile Applets


    Describe hostile applets -- denial of service, stealing process time, forge electronic mail


    How to recover from hostile applets


    How to disable Java in browser





    Lesson 3 - New Java Security Features


    Java firewalls


    Cryptography (CRYPTO API in JDK 1.1)


    Digitally-signed applets


    Verification



    Lesson 4 - Guidelines for Java Users


    How to Implement a Java Security Policy


    Common sense precautions





    Appendices - Seven Attack Applets -- Historical Java applets that were found by Princeton computer scientists and

    independent consultants. Many were discussed in popular press such as New York Times and Washington Post. Of

    course, all the security holes utilized by these applets are fixed in current browser implementations.


    Java for C/C++ Programmers Module
    Audience:
    Experienced C or C++ programmers. MindQ developed this tutorial so C/C++ programmers could omit the ``Overview of

    Java'' and ``Basic Java Syntax'' modules.

    Technicality:
    High (4 of 5) (See our Rating Scale ).

    Summary:
    Starts with simple concepts and drills down to the details of programming with Java. Details the differences

    between Java and C and C++. Covers syntax, primitive data types and core language classes. Builds to objected-

    oriented concepts, including superclass overloading and polymorphism. Ends with thorough discussion of event-driven

    programming. Several hands-on exercises will definitely challenge even the most seasoned C/C++ programmers. Do not

    try to tackle this module in one sitting!

    Summary
    In total, the ``Mind Q Developer Training for Java'' is the best computer-based training (CBT) tutorial that I have

    used personally. I think it has the correct mix of multimedia, reference, options, and hands-on training converge

    to provide an excellent learning environment. In particular, I enjoyed the audio option of the modules and the

    video clips used to elaborate on particular topics.

    Corporate IS shops who look to use Java to update their intranet or Internet sites will find these tutorials to be

    a valuable and inexpens ive alternative to seminar training. ISVs who look to use Java as a core development

    language should also find this training suited to their needs.

    Within the Java for C/C++ programmers, I thought the hands-on code exercises were challenging enough to make me

    focus on the problem solution. However, I definitely needed my Java reference book to complete the exercises.

    I liked the keyword highlight for language keywords in the Java code examples; however, the highlights became quite

    annoying within text regions because so many words are highlighted -- I turned off the keyword highlight option

    about three slides into the first lesson. To highlight only keyword syntax in code examples would be more useful.

    Finally, like most tutorials, the MindQ Developer Training for Java will only take Java education to a certain

    point (albeit a high point). Nothing beats real-world application of the principles learned in the modules!

    Rating Scale
    1 = Non tec hnical -- understandable by anyone.


    2 = Low technical -- understandable by computer-literate individuals, i.e., people who can use a computer for

    spreadsheets, word processing, etc.


    3 = Mid technical -- understandable by those with technical computer skills and limited experience, e.g., novice to

    mid-level programmers.


    4 = High technical -- understandable by those with advanced technical computer skills and experience, e.g.,

    experienced programmers.


    5 = Extreme technical -- Only understood by experts within the field in question.
