Audible Ajax Episode 13: Patrick Lightbody of WebWork

Category: Podcasts

Download Episode 12

Opensymphony WebWork is a quality Java web framework than is known for its simplicity, in a world of complexity. WebWork recently had a 2.2 release that offered up a ton of Ajax features, so we wanted to get the thoughts from a server-side web framework developer on what Ajax means to them.

We had the pleasure of interviewing Patrick Lightbody on his Ajax experience from the server-side.

What you will learn in this podcast

  • What WebWork is, and how it fits into the framework world
  • How WebWork builds on top of JavaScript frameworks such as Dojo and DWR
  • How you are able to build Ajax components for your WebWork applications without being a JavaScript guru
  • The notion of “widgets” in Dojo, and how they encapsulate complex Ajax components
  • What widgets you get for free with WebWork
  • How you can simple have a div that listens to a pub/sub topic
  • Use cases where you would want to use the pub/sub approach
  • How Ajax developers should be thinking about building ajax applications with a widget based approach
  • Why DWR is used with WebWork, and how it compares to Dojo
  • How you implement ajax form validation with WebWork
  • About the myths of Java web development
  • Getting the power of Shift-Reload debugging with Java
  • The future of Ajax web frameworks
  • The future for Apache Struts
  • Why Ajax developers should be using Selenium to test their web applications
  • How to get started using Selenium
  • How consilidation is needed in the Ajax framework world

Great podcast, haven’t previously looked at WebWork but definitely will. That echo is pretty bad though :(

Heh, you think it’s bad to listen to… try speaking with an echo of yourself in the background ;) Thanks Dion for the time, I hope that your listeners enjoy it.

Comment by Patrick Lightbody — January 23, 2006

Well, it’s good to hear I’m not the only one hearing voices, err, echoes. What I could stand listening to sounded interesting though:)

Comment by Scotty Allen — January 23, 2006

Ok so episode 13 I was able to “hear” the entire show complete with the sign-off. So does that mean the previous podcasts just abruptly ended by design?

The echo thing wasn’t so bad. Yes annoying, but I care more about the information than the production values. I really appreciate and the effort to produce podcasts. How about checking out the folks at broadcast machine? Maybe you should produce a video podcast? (do we really want to see what you look like?) You could incorp. some screen casting with the interviews. Just and idea, like you have the time for all this.
