If you have been following my blog, then you know it already. But a picture is worth a thousand words so here it is.
Three key points about jMaki:
- Languages - jMaki-enabled web applications can be deployed on the Java platform, for example Java Server Pages (JSP) or Java Server Faces (JSF). They can also be deployed on Phobos - a server-side scripting environment that runs on the Java platform. And jMaki widgets can be embedded in PHP or Rails applications. It provides a natural format to the developers' language of choice.
- Tools - jMaki comes with NetBeans and Eclipse plug-ins that allow you to drag/drop widgets in a page and generate the appropriate code fragments. And for non-IDE developers, there is an Ant task that allows you to create a project with the appropriate library dependencies.
This is my "speedgeeking" @ OSCON 2007.
And for those with a "serious" interest, I'm showing how some of the cool mashups are empowered by jMaki. Couple of them are available as screencasts at:
And more videos will be available later.
