About Web UI and 4-Tier Architecture Evolution Summary
Over the last 20 years I have streamlined the coupling between tiered frameworks within distributed platforms. Over the course of this journey I have decoupled and simplified each tier to focus on its strengths. So that web UIs are dedicated to the user experience, service containers focus on business objectives, databases model business semantics and integration cleanly links systems. I have found the most productive approaches recently to be HTML5, polyglot languages (Ruby, Groovy, Scala, Clojure & CoffeeScript), platforms (Akka, Grails, Ring, NetKernel), DSLs and REST.
