This year at JavaOne I’ll be presenting two session and participating in one BOF:
BOF4149 – Web Framework Smackdown 2012 – Monday @ 8:30pm
Much has changed since the first Web framework smackdown, at JavaOne 2005. Or has it? The 2012 edition of this popular panel discussion surveys the current landscape of Web UI frameworks for the Java platform. The 2005 edition featured JSF, Webwork, Struts, Tapestry, and Wicket. The 2012 edition features representatives of the current crop of frameworks, with a special emphasis on frameworks that leverage HTML5 and thin-server architecture. Java Champion Markus Eisele leads the lively discussion with panelists James Ward (Play), Graeme Rocher (Grails), Edward Burns (JSF) and Santiago Pericasgeertsen (Avatar).
CON3845 – Introduction to the Play Framework – Tuesday @ 8:30am
The Play Framework is a lightweight, stateless Web framework for Java and Scala applications. It’s built on Java NIO, so it’s highly scalable. This session gives you an introduction to building Web applications with the Play Framework. You will learn how to set up routes and create controllers and views, plus how to deploy Play Framework applications in the cloud.
CON3842 – Client/Server Applications with HTML5 and Java – Thursday @ 11am
I hope to see you there!
