JSF2 European Tour, Spring 2009
I just returned from presenting JSF2 at three wonderful conferences
in German speaking Europe.
Irian JSFDays in
S&S Verlag JAX in Mainz, Germany
My trip to JAX included a side trip to Michael
Hütterman’s Köln Java
Mathema Füjahrcampus is a smaller and more intimate version of
the annual Herbstcampus put on
by Mathema in the Fall. I really loved the Füjahrcampus. Mathema
boss and noted author Oliver
Szymanski gave several sessions together, including a full day
workshop on JSF2. This was practice for my upcoming href="http://java.sun.com/javaone/2009/javauniversity.jsp">Java
University Workshop on JSF 2. Thanks to Oliver, Michael, Nana and
the whole Mathema team for putting on a great conference.
The annual JSFDays Conference in Vienna was a huge success, with over
250 attendees and many of the leading individuals in the JSF community
in attendence. For a conference mainly devoted to just to JSF, that’s a
good amount. I particularly enjoyed href="http://jsfdays.irian.at/main/speakers.jsf#speaker16">Hazem
Saleh’s presentation on GMaps4JSF, and href="http://jsfdays.irian.at/main/speakers.jsf#speaker32">Daniel
Lichtenberger’s presentation on his JSF enabled software stack
called Flexive. Very cool stuff.
The slides and videos for most of the sessions at JSFDays are available
at for a small fee at < href="http://jsfdays.irian.at/registration/preregindex.jsf">http://jsfdays.irian.at/registration/preregindex.jsf>.
The annual JAX conference is the largest non-academic software
development conference in Germany. I’d never had the pleasure of
attending before, and it was really excellent. S&S has been running JAX
since 2001 and they really have the conference thing down. This year
there was one “JSF Day” during the conference proper, and a
“JSF Experts Day” the next day after the conference. Thanks
to Andy Bosch and Matthias Weßendorf; for organizing these days.
It looks like the slides from the JSF Experts Day are available at
though that site may be for registrants only.
I’ve taken the JSF2 presentation that Martin and I gave at JAX and modified it slightly to make it available at <https://javaserverfaces.dev.java.net/presentations/jsf2-complete-tour.odp> and <https://javaserverfaces.dev.java.net/presentations/jsf2-complete-tour.pdf>.
