Last week at Community One day, the jMaki session included a couple of speakers from the community. It is great to see jMaki used in the real world.
We had four speakers at our session and I'll admit it was a lot given we only had an hour. But I was excited to include both Jennifer Myers and Daniel Ziaoure since they are both using jMaki in their projects.
To prepare for our JavaOne session, GWT and jMaki: Expanding the GWT Universe, I decided I should add a jMaki Yahoo widget to a GWT application. Here is what I did.
I wanted to start with an existing application and I chose the Java PetStore demo application which Greg had rewritten using jMaki widgets and GWT.
Community One day and JavaOne are just around the corner. Community One day is a free event so we hope you will come out and learn about jMaki, GlassFish and NetBeans.
Come to Moscone Center on Monday May 5 for many interesting sessions.
Greg and I will be speaking along with some folks from the community.
Session: jMaki: The power of Ajax made easy.
Time: 12:25- 1:20
I've gotten a few questions about how to get datainto jMaki widgets. This blogs describes the different ways in jMaki to load data into widgets.
Let's look at the JSP tag for including a jMaki accordionMenu widget in your web application.
I've noticed a few web sites are using jMaki in their web apps and thought that there are probably a lot more. If you are using jMaki I'd love to here about what you are using and alittle about your application. Let me know if I can post a link to your site on the jMaki site.
Don't forget to send me ( carla dot mott @ sun dot com) your address so I can send the t-shirt.
There's a lot of new functionality in the developer release of jMaki 1.1.
Today Ludo and I spoke at EclipseCon on Glassfish and jMaki. Our talk was well attended and well received. Here is an overview of the talk and some comments.
Ludo started the talk with a discussion about Glassfish V2 and V3. He mentioned that Glassfish v2 is enterprise-centric providing clustering, load-balancing and HA support.
Recently I wanted to load data from a blog feed into a jMaki widget. Here I describe how to do just that.
The feed I want to read is coming from The Aquarium. I want to view the the title and the first 60 characters of each blog entry using the jMaki blockList widget since it automatically handles paging.
We just posted the jMaki wrappers for many of the Dojo Dijit 1.0.2 widgets. Widgets wrapped include the grid, tabbed view, tree, accordion, button, fisheye, calendar and more.
In a joint effort with the ExtJs toolkit team, the jMaki wrappers for the ExtJs 1.1 toolkit are now available, jmaki-ext-1.0.1.zip. Included are wrappers for the menu, grid and tree widgets from the ExtJs toolkit.
