Not much is hotter today than mobile web development! This mobile world has new restrictions and old issues. As Java enterprise developers you're dedicated to standards. You've also got existing JSF applications (hopefully written with RichFaces) that need a mobile face. Do you have to move away from JavaServer Faces (JSF) to write kick ass mobile web applications?
This session will go through the details, resources, and code you need to create near native, mobile web applications with todays enterprise technologies. That means your Java Enterprise Edition 6 app server (JBoss AS7) running with JSF 2, CDI, JMS, bean validation, etc…, but enhanced with device and feature detection, HTML5 and CSS3. This is a very technical session, that will assume some understanding on the mobile web and JSF. Don't worry, if you saw Burr Sutter's webinar on September 21st (vimeo.com/29403374), and have basic knowledge of JSF you'll be all set.
With JSF 2 and RichFaces 4 you can still get the advantages of working with Java EE6 while working with the latest in client technology. It's not all good news though and we'll go over some of the pitfalls of working with JSF on mobile devices, and how you can work around them.
