2006 Meetings

Next Meeting

JavaServer Faces (JSF)
a new standard framework for building web applications

Guest Speaker - Mike Burton of Myco Systems Ltd

Presented by The Association of Independent Computer Specialists

Tuesday 28 March 2006

JSF provides a clean, object-oriented way to deal with the complex world of http-based systems, separating the presentation layer from the underlying business logic, and making applications much more manageable. In large projects this approach also allows coders and web designers to work together without "getting under each others' feet". It is particularly good at handling validation, and sophisticated navigation or "page flow" within large systems. JSF is touted as the next "must-have" skill, so even the non-technical among us would benefit from knowing about it. The presentation will show how to create a simple web database using JSF, along with associated useful software such as Eclipse, Hibernate and MySQL.

Mike Burton of Myco Systems Ltd has been developing software for the past 25 years in a wide range of environments from centralised mainframes to client-server PCs, and now multi-tiered web-based applications. He has 15 years experience of C++ and Java, mainly as a developer but also providing training in these technologies.
