Designing and building a web application using AJAX and Java EE 5 can present a lot of challenges to developers: how much AJAX to use, how to apply Model View Contoller and other design patterns, how to build your domain model with Java Persistence APIs, whether to return XML or HTML or JSON to XMLHttpRequests, how to leverage RSS feeds as data sources, how to mash up with Google Map APIs to provide location-specific searches of your data, how to wrap AJAX in JSF components, and many other challenges.
The Java Pet Store 2.0, Early Access, provides a reference application illustrating the blueprints for designing a complex AJAX web application on Java EE 5.
Download the first public release of Java Pet Store 2.0 and explore this reference application.
