jMaki Day presentations available
Presentation and lab material from the first jMaki day are now posted on line. This jMaki day was available to Sun internal folks only because we wanted to get feedback from a small group. The feedback was good overall but looks like we need to provide more details on data binding.
The presentations in the morning included an overview of jMaki and Phobos and how Sun is using Web 2.0 technologies in its offerings. In the afternoon folks learned about specific features in jMaki and also built applications using those features. See Arun's blog for pictures from the day. The first lab given by Doris talks about a jMaki application structure and goes over the steps needed to create a applcation using NetBeans. I did the second lab which covered 2 main featuers; the glue code feature for communicating with widgets and loading data in a table widget. The final lab was run by Greg where he builds on the second lab and shows how to load data from your blog into a table widget. The lab slides have been posted too so you can try them out.
Greg and I have been working on sample applications for jMaki. I'm working on samples that correspond to what I showed in my lab (lab 2). Greg already posted a sample that corresponds to his lab.
Check out the presentations and labs and let us know what you think.
