A bit lost in the noise of JavaOne was the announcement of the Release of SWDP R2. This is a bundle (home page, download page) of a several key Web 2.0 technologies that can work on Java containers, including Tomcat and GlassFish.
The technologies include: jMaki, Dynamic Faces, Phobos, WADL, Rome, and Rome Propono. Also included are some Java APIs for REST which were the original submission on JSR-311; and check Paul's recent blog for a report on how that is going...

Check out Roberto's Report on his presentation at Web 2.0 Expo on (Scripting and the Java Platform: Productivity and Performance (slides). A very interesting presentation where he covered a number of areas, from Phobos and jMaki to Scala and GlassFish v3.
The presentation's main point is the importance of some sort of soft / hard architectural boundary in successful systems. I agree, variations of this are everywhere - as one example, see the plug-in architectures in JAXB, JAX-WS and Hudson. Roberto is appylying this principle in Phobos, and it is also implicit in the extensibility ideas of the Java EE 6 proposal.
The presentation also showed how these concepts are combined with the modularity principle of GlassFish v3 to deliver a very productive and performant system that has low footprint and very fast startup: less than 2 seconds.
JavaOne and CommunityOne will cover all these topics. At CommunityOne they will be partly in the Web 2.0 track (jMaki/Phobos) and partly at GlasssFish Day (GF v3). CommunityOne is free and includes keynotes, multiple sessions and demo stations, free lunch and goodies and complimentary access to some JavaOne events but you need to register.

Phobos was included in the latest Sun Web Developer Pack. The SWDP was released a week ago but it was announced this week at AJAX World, which is a bit unusual but the timing and venue of the announcement (and the content, one hopes!) has generated a lot of interest in the Press, including SysCon, CBR, eWeek.
Hopefully all this will lead to more users and contributors, and, indeed, the USERs list has jumped from 2 to 86 in two weeks. The dev team is going to be very busy! I also noticed that Tony Zakula has started a blog about Phobos; it will be interesting the situation by Java One.

Last week several of us participated in the very first jMaki Day. We wanted to provide training material including presentations, labs and demos to get folks started. The talks included a session on Web 2.0 technologies, Introduction to jMaki, Introductiion to Phobos, Tools, and State of the Union for jMaki.
This set of talks were presented to Sun internal folks mostly because we wanted to keep the number of attendees small and also have the ability to get specific feedack. All material has been made available on the jMaki website here. See my blog and Arun's blog for more details on jMaki day.

The pet store may be the most famous of Sun's sample web applications, but it's certainly not the only one. Sun's Web 2.0 team has put together a collection of live samples covering a slew of web technologies--AJAX, Dojo, RSS, JSP, JSF, Woodstock, jMaki, and more. And, of course, they all run on the GlassFish Application Server.
Try each sample out directly on the web site. Then follow the "learn more" links to get additional information on how each was made and how you can use similar techniques in your own work. As the team says, "We hope you're inspired by these apps, components, and widgets."

For more information on developing applications using Phobos see Jennifer's lastest post, New Technologies for Ajax and Web Application Development: Project Phobos. This article is currently highlighted on The Server Side.

If learning how to write Ajax enabled web apps is one of your New Year's resolutions then check out the following blogs.
My blog, Building web 2.0 apps with jMaki uses one of the layout templates, glue code to tie widgets together and the injector code to load pages within a div tag to create a web application. The glue code ties the Yahoo Geocoder and Google Maps widgets. The injector is used to load the page containing those widgets in the div tag genereated by layout template and navigation is done using the Dojo fisheye widget.
Jennifer published two blogs at roughly the same time. Fun with jMaki: Using the Yahoo Geocoder service with the Dojo Combobox also uses the Yahoo Geocoder but she used the Yahoo Map and a combobox to select the city to map. More Fun with jMaki: Getting Data From a Bean shows how to get data from a bean using an EL experssion to a widget (in this case ComboBox). The data is converted to JSON format using the org.json libary.
Finally, checkout the new project jmaki-charting. This friend of jMaki project provides a charting widget which can be added to the jMaki framework. It's open source, freely available and it supports Java, PHP and Phobos.

jMaki beta 2 release is now available for download. Highlights of this release include a new widget model, improvements to the dynamic container which loads pages on demand and of course, bug fixes. Check out my blog for more details.
jMaki is a framework that provides a lightweight model for building Ajax enabled web applications using standards-based technologies. It allows you to use widgets from popular toolkits and includes support for PHP, JSP, JSF and Phobos.

Via TheGalaxy, in his recent blog, Roberto discusses some interesting aspects of building the application atomserver, which is an implementation of the Atom Publishing Protocol v9 in Phobos. The application also uses some new REST libraries. For more details, please check out Roberto's blog.
Added: Seems Atom v9 has expired and the doc is no longer available. The most recent version is v11 which is available here.

Via TheGalaxy, hot on the heels of Pramod's blog about how to set up the debugging feature in NetBeans for Phobos, Roberto is giving us more details on the new features of NetBeans including how to develope and debug a Phobos application. Hopefully with the help of both Pramod's and Roberto's nice demonstration, not to mention the cool features in NetBeans, your adventure into Phobos will be a breeze. Let us know what you think!

Sun's WebServer 7.0 provides a Java Web Tier as well as good connectivity (NSAPI, Fast-CGI) with many non-Java applications. As an example of the former, Seema also shows how to run Blojsom, which follows from Blojsom on GlassFish, as did our previously reported Phobos on Web Server. As an example of the latter, Seema describes in detail how to Run Ruby On Rails.
