Real-World AJAX Seminar, New York: AJAX and Faces - Friends or Foes?

Jonas Jacobi and John Fallows To Speak in New York City, June 5, 2006

Can a client-side AJAX solution and server-side Faces solution co-exist and play well together? Or are they each solving a similar problem in a different and incompatible way? The authors of Pro JSF and Ajax,   Jonas Jacobi and John R. Fallows, will discuss how the JavaServer Faces framework can be used to embrace AJAX today, while protecting Web applications from radical re-architecture each time there is a change in direction of client-side technology. Jonas and John will address the key aspects of Faces component development, and will introduce innovative techniques to adopt AJAX. Jonas and John will cover many issues that developers encounter when building AJAX-enabled JSF components, and they will discuss how best to leverage AJAX to create extremely interactive rich Internet components.
