2008 is going to be an important year for Rich Internet Applications. Most
organizations are delivering or planning to deliver Rich Internet
Applications; however, at the same time, most IT managers are facing a
dilemma: which Rich Internet Application technology and platform to use? The
number of different frameworks and libraries is too vast to even consider
evaluating a fraction of them.
To make this task manageable, I'm going to narrow things down to three
different technologies for delivering enterprise-level Rich Internet
Applications. While the first two (JSF and Flex) are proven technologies that
have been used for a numbers of years, JavaFX is a new declarative language
for building rich user interfaces using Java.
It's essential for IT managers to consider and be aware that more than one
delivery platform exists today for Rich Internet Applications. Tab... (more)
Here is something you may or may not know. JSF Mojarra comes with a small
extension tag library with three tags: regular expression validator, credit

http://demo.flamingo.exadel.com/booking/. You will also see JSF/RichFaces and
Flex versions of the application. All instances are connected to the same
Seam back-end. Once you register, you can use the same name/password
information to login using any other user interface.

I was thinking about this for the past few months, how do I use or how should
I use all the social “stuff” out there? As I thought about it, this is
the picture that surfaced. It works for me, maybe it will work for you, maybe
not. Maybe I’ll change some things in the future. I use the three main
social sites: Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter.
Facebook is purely personal, I will not accept any professional invites. I
only connect with family and friends. Sorry, I just don’t think someone who
I met at a conference needs to see my family pictures.
