Deryk Sinotte is a senior developer at ICESoft, the company that manages the
ICEfaces open-source project. He will present the ICEFaces AJAX application framework.

ICEfaces is an integrated Ajax application framework that enables Java EE application developers to easily create and deploy thin-client rich Internet applications (RIA) in pure Java. ICEfaces is a fully featured product that enterprise developers can use to develop new or existing Java EE applications at no cost.

ICEfaces leverages the entire standards-based Java EE ecosystem of tools and execution environments. Rich enterprise application features are developed in pure Java, and in a pure thin-client model. There are no Applets or proprietary browser plug-ins required. ICEfaces applications are JavaServer Faces (JSF) applications, so Java EE application development skills apply directly and Java developers are isolated from doing any JavaScript related development.

Deryk will be talking about the origins and architecture of ICEfaces, demonstrate some applications and portlets that use ICEfaces, and answer any questions that the audience may have.

We will raffle off a personal license for IntelliJ IDEA sponsored by JetBrains as well as an ipod nano sponsored by ICEsoft.
All VIJUG members and anybody else interested are welcome to attend.

We hope to meet you there.

  1. Wow.. this was a long meeting. Deryk captured the audience and ended up showing all his presentation and keeping discussions going for over 70 minutes. 15 of us were present and I am certain that everybody learned something about ICEFaces, JSF, AJAX, AJAX push and more. A few of us stayed behind after the raffle and got some more show and tell from Deryk. It was great.

    After the presentation and Q&A session we raffled off the iPod Nano, sponsored by ICESoft, and taken home by Adam. The lucky winner of the IntelliJ license was Aidan.

    Once again thanks to our sponsors ICESoft for the presentation, JetBrains for the IntelliJ license and VITP for the meeting room.
