Mid West Java Tech Days 2007 - Chicago Trip Report

Posted by arungupta on October 19, 2007 at 6:19 AM PDT

Mid West Java Tech Days
concluded in Chicago yesterday.

With approximately 160 participants, the conference attendees were slightly
larger in number than the
Minneapolis Tech Days.
The interaction with the audience was also good. The day started with Tim
Bray's key note and it was a

repeat of Minneapolis
.

I delivered two talks (same as in Minneapolis)- "Metro: Web services
interoperability with Microsoft .NET" and  "jMaki: Framework for
Ajax-enabled Web 2.0 apps". Here are the questions (with answers) that were
asked during the presentation:

Metro: Web services
interoperability with Microsoft .NET

  • Are slides available ?

    Yes, very well. They are available

    here
    . A link to the demos shown in the talk is available at:

     
  • Can Metro apps be deployed on JBoss ?

    JBoss WS 2.1.0 will support Metro. Read more details

    here
    .
  • .NET 2.0  ?

    Metro provides interoperability with .NET 3.0. We have not tested
    explicitly with .NET 2.0 however it would be nice if you can test and
    let us know.
  • Can the WAR created by NetBeans be deployed on other containers ?

    Yes, NetBeans IDE allows to configure Tomcat as a container. After
    Tomcat is Metro-enabled, using the script bundled with the standalone
    build of Metro (downloadable from
    http://metro.dev.java.net
    ), a Metro WAR can be easily deployed on
    Tomcat directly from within the NetBeans IDE. All the Metro features,
    except Transactional Web services will work on Tomcat.

jMaki: Framework for Ajax-enabled
Web 2.0 apps

  • Are slides available ?

    Yes, very well. They are available

    here
    . A link to the demos shown in the talk is available at:

     
  • Can jMaki be integrated with other MVC controllers such as Spring
    ?


    Currently jMaki integrates very well with
    Rails. Support for other MVC
    frameworks can be added by community participation.
    Let us know
    if you are interested.
  • Are jMaki widgets available as part of standard plugin ?

    Yes, jMaki plugin for
    NetBeans and
    Eclipse comes
    with all the palettes and widgets that are available.
  • Can the jMaki WAR be deployed on any container ?

    The only requirement for jMaki for Java is Servlet 2.4 and JSP 1.2. If
    you are using JSF then JSF 1.1 support is required as well.
  • Can a jMaki WAR be hosted on a public site ?

    Yes, The ISP need to have WAR hosting capabilities. If the WAR needs to
    access external services, then the ISP may also need to allow that
    explicitly.
  • Can I use it in production ?

    jMaki is ready for production. jmaki.com is using jMaki on PHP.
    Let us know
    if we can help you in any manner.
