Developing Zero-Install Rich Internet Applications Using XML

3:00 p.m.

The J2EE platform provides the server infrastructure for thin client Web applications as well as fat client desktop applications. Thin client applications run inside any browser, are centrally managed and deployed, but do not offer high client functionality and performance. Fat clients offer great client functionality and performance, but require client installation and are expensive to maintain. As a result, many developers have been asking: can we possibly develop J2EE applications that have the benefits of both thin client and fat client but without the drawback of either?

The session describes Rich Internet Applications (yet with zero client footprint) using J2EE and XML, an emerging architecture that offers the best of both worlds. The session would initially discuss what are Rich Internet Applications, the technology landscape, and technology evaluation guidelines. Then the session will discuss how J2EE and XML can be used for developing Rich Client Applications. Demonstrations of real world applications and hands-on coding examples will be shown.
