Web Frameworks of the Future: Flex, GWT, Grails and Rails


Published on

What if the choices in web framework were reduced to 4? If RIA are the way of the future, it’s possible that these 4 frameworks are the best choices for this development paradigm. This session will explore these frameworks, as well as entertain other opinions on the future of web development.

RESTful backends are easy to create with both Rails and Grails. Ajax frontends are simple to create and maintain with GWT. Flex gives you Fash and a pretty UI. If you’re an HTML developer, Rails allows you to quickly develop MVC applications. If you’re a Java Developer, GWT + Grails might be a match made in heaven. This session is designed to help you learn more about each framework and decide which combination is best for your project.

In addition, licensing, community support, and documentation/training for each project will be discussed.
