Ajax is the web's hottest user interface. Struts is Java's most popular web framework. What happens when we put Ajax on Struts?
In this session, we look at writing a new Struts 2 application from square one, using the Yahoo User Interface (YUI) Library on the front end, and Struts 2 on the backend. YUI provides the glitz and the glamour, and Struts 2 provides the dreary business logic, input validation, and text formatting.
During the session, we will cover
* How to integrate an Ajax UI with Struts 2
* Basics of the Yahoo User Interface (YUI) Library
* Business services Struts can provide to an Ajax UI
Who should attend: Ajax developers who would like to utilize Struts as a back-end, and Struts developers who would like to utilize Ajax as a front-end.
To get the most from this session, some familiarity with an Ajax library, like YUI or Dojo, is helpful.
