Java Enterprise

JavaOne was fantastic this year. Being a presenter did put a very different twist on the week-- especially going at the end. This left Ed Burns, Adam Winer, and I plenty of time to go over our presentation. I might as well been tied at the hip with them because of all our practices dotted throughout my session schedule. While I didn't get a chance to attend all of the sessions I planned to (I...

Sun started working on a lot of AJAX things about a year ago. As the manager for the Java Web Tier, that meant that I was pretty involved with most of the work we're doing. But for the most part, we kept quiet - in large part because we don't like to preannounce things.

Spring, Struts, Webwork, Tiles, Velocity . . . the list goes on! There are so many choices for Java Web Frameworks, but none are really at JavaOne. What happened? I'm very excited about all the REST coverage at JavaOne and there is plenty of AJAX coverage (as we all know), but I would have loved to see more talks about Java Web Frameworks. Maybe I chose the wrong sessions and missed them, but...

With JSF, we have this robust component model, an extreme amount of collaboration that has existed since the spec's inception. AJAX has arrived, but many of the examples online simply jump outside of JSF to provide ivory tower solutions with lots of manual coding by the end developer. This can inevitably falter long term and place developers back into the same situation they were in with JSP...
