Screencast #Web1: JavaScript Everywhere! JavaOne 2007 Demo

Developing a Web 2.0 app is really simple with Phobos and jMaki. Phobos is a light-weight scripting-friendly web application environment that runs on Java platform. jMaki is an Ajax framework and also provides a unified data model by wrapping components from existing toolkits such as Yahoo and Dojo.

Currently the primary language supported by Phobos is JavaScript and jMaki has support for Java, Phobos, PHP, and Ruby. Using the same language, JavaScript, on both client and server eliminates the impedance mismatch between the data format. Both of these technologies can be installed as plug-in modules in NetBeans IDE.

If you are attending JavaOne 2007, TS-6381 (Tue, May 8, 4:40 pm) and booth #953 in the Pavilion shows how easy it is to build a "Developer Dashboard" that allows you to monitor different activities of your project. If you want to build this application, then you can follow the screen cast.

Enjoy it here!

Three key points to be highlighted in this demo:

  1. jMaki and Phobos are made-for-each-other. They allow to use same skill set (JavaScript) on both client and server and eliminates the impedance mismatch by using the same data format on both the sides.
  2. NetBeans IDE provides a rapid development, run and test cycle increasing your development time. There is no deployment or compilation required.
  3. All these apps can be deployed on GlassFish V2 or V3, an open-source, production quality, and Java EE 5 compatible application server.
