March 2009 Meeting Information

March 10, 2009
Getting Started with the Stripes Framework

Stripes is a presentation framework for building web applications using the latest Java technologies. Most modern web frameworks in the Java realm are over complicated and/or require a significant amount of configuration. Struts is featurelight, but has some serious architectural issues. Others, like WebWork 2 and Spring MVC are much better, but still require a lot of configuration where you seemingly have to learn a whole new language just to get started. Stripes provides simple, yet powerful, solutions to common problems. Developers can extend Stripes with minimal configuration and ramp-up time for getting started with this framework is less than 30 minutes. We will introduce you to the Stripes framework including a review of a small sample application to demonstrate some of its features.

Also, one (1) free pass to the 2009 Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise Conference will be raffled off at the end of the meeting!

Meetings are held every second Tuesday of the month at the Scotch Plains Rescue Squad second floor meeting hall starting promptly at 7:30pm. Meetings are open to the public, and visitors are encouraged to join ACGNJ.
