Genova JUG Meeting @ NIS on elements web library and Javaday 2010 – 02/02/2010

January 19, 2010

The next meeting of the Genova JUG will take place at 6.30pm on the 2nd of February 2010 at the new location of NIS in Via al Porto Antico 7, 16128 Genova

We’ll talk about:

  • Elements web component library (Giampiero Granatella, Paolo Predonzani)
  • report from Javaday Roma 2010 (Carlo Bonamico)

Elements is an open source library of web UI components for high productivity in small to large projects. It is not “yet another framework” competing in the framework arena; rather, it is a library that integrates with regular JSP’s, with Struts 2 and, in future developments, with other frameworks. The components cover all levels of abstraction: low (single fields), medium (forms) and high (multi-page wizards, integrations with JFreeChart and GoogleMaps, etc.). Elements does not require any xml configuration but uses reflection and annotations to interact with regular pojo’s. This JUG presentation will show how to create a feature-rich multi-page form (see the picture below) in 15 minutes.

Participation is free and open to all; if you plan to attend, please register on http://www.jugevents.org/jugevents/event/22798. Note: If you plan to join us for a pizza in a nearby place, please add “(pizza)” to your last name when registering.

-4 days: looking forward to the Application Server Day 2009

May 17, 2009

The first Java Aplication Server day is coming to Genoa this Thursday (May 21st, 2009).

The four speakers – Alexis Moussine-Pouchkine (Sun GlassFish), Paolo Ramasso (Oracle Fusion Middleware), Alessio Soldano (RedHat JBoss) and Alef Arendsen (Spring dm Server) – are warming up the presentations and the demos, ready to make this one of the most interesting, thought-provoking, fun event to be at this year. Four Java application servers discussed and debated in one big room with the community: yes, it’s real!!!

Talking about the community, if you’re in Genoa or can visit Genoa for at least one day (Genoa can easily be reached by train from northern and central Italy, as well as from other places through its international airport), please register on-line. Participation is free, but your registration can help us organize a few things in advance. Invite your friends, invite your colleagues. Help make this a great community event.

The Application Server Day will be held at the Faculty of Engineering, in the Albaro district of Genoa. A map and directions on how to reach the venue are published here.

So see you all on Thursday at 14:00!
