Struts Creator Craig McClanahan To Speak at AJAXWorld 2007 East

McClanahan's Session Title: "Encapsulating AJAX Functionality in JavaServer Faces Components"

The original creator of the Struts and Shale web application frameworks, Sun's Craig McClanahan (pictured), is to give a session on "Encapsulating AJAX Functionality in JavaServer Faces Components" at AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 East, being held 19-21 March at The Roosevelt Hotel in New York City.

His session recognizes that one of the challenges of deploying AJAX-based web applications is the complexity of composing the UI. Says McClanahan: "There are many advanced JavaScript libraries available, but they are generally not accessible to 'mere mortal' developers."

His session will therefore describe techniques for using JavaServer Faces components to encapsulate AJAX functionality, making it possible to shield the application developer from much of this complexity.

McClanahan is currently architect for Sun Java Studio Creator, and the NetBeans Visual Web Pack, IDEs designed to provide a visual development experience for creating web applications. Previously, he was co-specification lead for JavaServer Faces 1.
 

At AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 East, delegates will hear and learn not only the history, process, and inspiration behind AJAX, they will also be helped to design actual AJAX applications using JavaScript, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), the Document Object Model (DOM) and XMLHttpRequest Object.

Delegates can hand-pick sessions from six tracks pitched at a a variety of levels from Beginner to Advanced. Rather than staying at the platform-agnostic level, developers and IT professionals will find among the 100+ sessions at AJAXWorld real-world examples in all the main server-side technologies such as PHP, Java, .NET and ColdFusion.

The first International AJAXWorld (a registered trademark of SYS-CON Media) Conference & Expo generated record press coverage for any i-technology event in the past 6 years. A quick search on Google News brought 410 stories filed under the keyword search "AJAXWorld."

Typical of the coverage was the story from ADT Magazine, whose John K. Waters wrote, in a report titled "Nexaweb and JackBe Take Web 2 to the Enterprise":

"Last week's AJAXWorld Conference and Expo ... had the feel of an early JavaOne?which is to say, the place was positively quivering with possibility."
