What do Java SDETs do?

The goal of a Java SDET is to combine software development and testing expertise to ensure the production of high-quality, reliable software. 

They are critical in the software development life cycle as they help identify and correct issues before the software is launched.

Why do companies around the world need Java SDETs?

Given the increasing reliance on software in today’s world, the role of a Java SDET in assuring the quality and performance of that software becomes all the more critical. 

Thus, companies around the globe require their expertise to maintain their digital infrastructure and provide high-quality services to their clients.

Holistic Approach To Learning

Our educational strategy considers the entirety of a learner’s experience, rather than focusing on learning isolated facts or skills in a fragmented way. 

The concept is rooted in the idea that learning is not just about accumulating knowledge, but it’s also about developing the whole person — emotionally, socially, and intellectually.

Market-Driven Curriculum

Our program is designed based on the needs and demands of the job market or industry. Our content is responsive to trends, changes, and skills gaps in the marketplace.

Learning That Fits Your Schedule

Our class blends self-paced learning (through videos), collaborative learning (through group projects), and personalized learning (through mentor assistance) to offer a versatile and comprehensive learning experience.

LIVE Instructor & Mentorship Support

Our course aims to provide learners with a well-rounded and personalized educational experience, equipping them with both the technical knowledge and practical insights they need to succeed in the tech industry.


The fundamentals of the Java programming language, including syntax, data types, variables, and operators. A strong grasp of the basics is critical for writing and understanding Java code.

  • Class & Object: Classes and objects are fundamental concepts in Java and object-oriented programming. A class is a blueprint for creating objects (a particular data structure), while an object is an instance of a class.

These are key concepts in Java and many other languages, including encapsulation, inheritance, polymorphism, and abstraction. They help organize and structure code effectively.

These are ways of organizing and storing data so that they can be accessed and worked with efficiently. They are crucial for problem-solving in coding.

Learning how to automate the testing of user interfaces (UIs) helps speed up the testing process and makes it more accurate.

  • Learn different UI test automation tools: There are various tools available for UI test automation, and knowing how to use them increases an SDET’s versatility and effectiveness.

  • Create advanced test automation frameworks: These are structured ways to perform automated testing, improving the efficiency and maintainability of test scripts.

This is the process that governs the development of software, from initial concept through to maintenance. Understanding this helps SDETs fit testing into the larger picture.

Agile-Scrum is a project management methodology that’s highly iterative and collaborative, used often in software development. It helps teams respond to unpredictability through incremental work cadences, known as sprints.

  • Team Structure at Work & Responsibilities: Understanding who does what in a tech team helps an SDET collaborate effectively with others.

Understanding databases is important as SDETs may often work with data in their testing.

  • Setting up Oracle Database using AWS Virtual Machine: This specific skill allows SDETs to set up and work with a widely used database system on a cloud platform, broadening their practical skill set.

  • Write SQL Query to Retrieve Data from Database: SQL is the language used to communicate with databases. Being able to write SQL queries is critical for working with data.

  • Programmatically Access Database with JDBC: JDBC (Java Database Connectivity) is a Java API that enables Java programs to execute SQL statements. This allows for interaction between the Java code and a database.

APIs are sets of rules that allow different software applications to communicate with each other. Understanding this is important for integrating different software components.

  • Set up AWS Virtual Machine for Internal Application for Course: This skill equips SDETs with the knowledge of setting up and managing a virtual machine in the cloud, which is increasingly important in modern software development and testing.

  • API Testing with Postman: Postman is a popular tool used for API testing. Being able to use it effectively is a valuable skill for an SDET.

  • API Testing with Rest Assured Java library: Rest Assured is a Java library used for testing and validating REST APIs. Knowing how to use it provides a Java-native way to test APIs.
