It’s the second day of the four day training. A lot of things were covered:
- Modern Web UI including progressive enhancement, accessibility, and design.
- Applying Spring JS, an abstraction around other AJAX toolkit. The coverage includes AJAX events, client side validation, and rich widgets.
- Working directly with Dojo Toolkit, including DOM scripting and Dojo widgets (Dijit).
Lost VMs or Containers? Too Many Consoles? Too Slow GUI? Time to learn how to "Google" and manage your VMware and clouds in a fast and secure HTML5 App.
Last, but not the least, I have other choices like Adobe Flex, Sun JavaFX, Microsoft SilverLight. The Flex is based on the Adobe’s Flash technology. You can develop your client side application and package it as a .swf file downloadable to the client side. With their Flex Builder IDE, it’s pretty straight-forward to develop a nice front end in a similar way as a standalone application. Due to its huge success, Sun came up with JavaFX and Microsoft with SilverLight (). By the way, I don’t think JavaFX has a bright future because Sun doesn’t seem to have enough expertise on client side.
