jMaki at Mashup Camp Report

Thursday (Jul 19) is the last day of Mashup Camp. Greg gave a jMaki session on Monday and today Carla helped staff the tabletop and I participated in Speed Geeking. This was my first experience and lot of fun to give a 5-minute pitch to bunch of participants. Here is the 5-minute pitch that I presented:

  • jMaki is a lightweight framework to create Ajax-enabled Web 2.0 applications.
  • jMaki - "j" stands for JavaScript and "Maki" is to wrap in Japanese (as in Sushi).
  • Toolkits: It allows to create native widgets and provide wrappers over widgets from multiple toolkits such as Yahoo, Dojo, Script.aculo.us and others.
  • Platform: jMaki widgets can be embedded in Java Server Pages (JSP), Java Server Faces (JSF), Phobos, PHP and Ruby-on-Rails applications.
  • Tools: jMaki-enabled applications can be easily created using NetBeans IDE, Eclipse and Ant-based command-line tasks.
  • The biggest benefit of jMaki is that it provides standard data models allowing developers to seamlessly change the underlying toolkits (for a better look-and-feel) and also shields developers from changes in data models in future version of these toolkits.
  • jMaki allows to create powerful mashups easily. Some of the powerful mashups that can be created are described here. Stay tuned for detailed blog entries and screencasts showing how to create them.
