Most Java developers are quite happy to focus their efforts on server-side code; they view the browser as an untamed world that is plagued by cross-browser incompatibilities, cryptic markup, and sub-standard scripting languages. However, new approaches are emerging which attempt to "tame" the browser. In this talk, Tim will present technologies such as the Dojo toolkit, JSON, and REST. But more importantly, he'll present it from the perspective of the J2EE developer. If you've ever wondered how to leverage "Web 2.0" technologies without becoming an HTML/CSS/JavaScript expert, this
talk is for you.
