Java SIG: AJAX and Java



  • The Monthly Meeting of the Java SIG


    First Half:

    AJAX and Java

    Java technology is the base for many web application frameworks which up until recently have focused on having the application control and state on the server. The emergence of AJAX does not require that you scrap all of your web applications though it does cause us to think differently in how we design and manage your applications. This presentation will address using Java technologies such as Servlets, JavaServer Pages , and JavaServer Faces to create interactive AJAX applications. This presentation will address the programming model for AJAX based applications, including guidelines, and patterns. A discussion on using JavaScript libraries such as Dojo effectively with Java will be follow along with a discussion on how to expose JavaScript widgets (such as those in Dojo) in Java using jMaki (a JSP/JSF library for wrapping JavaScript). In conclusion, this presentation will cover the use cases and provide recommendations for the using the various Java approaches for AJAX.

    Greg Murray

    Greg Murray is the AJAX architect for Sun MicroSystems. He is the Sun representative to the Dojo foundation and also one of Sun's representatives to the Open AJAX alliance. Greg started the grass roots effort at Sun promoting the use of AJAX and JavaScript with Java technologies. Greg is the creator and project lead of Project jMaki (a new technology to enabled JavaScript and Java to work together). Greg contributed to the design and implementation of the new AJAX based Java Pet Store 2.0 Demo as well as the Java BluePrints solution catalog entries for using AJAX with Java technologies.

    Greg has been involved with the Java Enterprise Edition web tier since the creation of the platform. Before taking on his current responsibilities Greg was the Servlet 2.5 specification lead and worked with the Java BluePrints team to define the best practices for Java Enterprise Edition web application development. Greg has spoken at many conferences including he AJAX Experience 2006, Java One 2001-2006, Sun Developer Days 2006, JAOO 2000-2001, and O'Rielly 2000.

    Second Half:

    AJAX frameworks, tools, and approaches

    AJAX has already taken the Web application development world by storm. And in the past year, JavaServer Faces has emerged as the standard essential technology for building richly interactive Web applications. When combined, you have access to the most powerful rich component-based approach for developing modern Web applications on the market today, allowing developers to create rich enterprise Web 2.0 applications. In this session we will discuss various AJAX frameworks, tools, and approaches and how JSF and AJAX work together to create enterprise Web 2.0 applications, all using easy to understand live examples.

    Max Katz

    Max is a senior systems engineer at Exadel, responsible for technical support, training and customer care for the Exadel product line. He also conducts online and onsite JavaServer Faces training. With more than seven years of IT experience, he brings a wide array of skills and experiences from his technical and managerial positions. Mr. Katz holds a B.S. in computer science from the University of California at Davis.
