JSR 170 Content Repositories

In many cases you want to achieve goals that are not easily implemented using a regular database — such as versioning of data, or tree structures — that are standard functionalities in a content repository. These types of functionalities are among the key requirements in JSR 170, which has as its goal to present a standard interface for different vendor content repositories.

In this session we will go through what lies behind JSR 170, and look at the Apache implementation: Jackrabbit. We will also look at how a blog and an issue tracking system were implemented using Jackrabbit on a live site.

XAP – eXtensible Ajax Platform

XAP is an XML-based declarative framework for building, deploying and maintaining rich, interactive Ajax powered web applications, independent from your backend technology. In this session we will go through what XAP has to offer, and whether or not we actually need another Ajax GUI framework alongside the other implementations, such as DOJO, AjaxAnywhere, AJAX4JSF and the rest of the pack.
