Server Side Web Frameworks, The Last Stand

I’m a fan of client / server architecture. I believe that…

  • the back end should be limited to the logic / data tiers
  • the presentation tier should be separate from the logic / data tiers
  • the presentation tier should integrate with the logic / data tiers

The Fall of Server Side Web Frameworks

I am a champion of front end development.

I am a back end developer.

I can do front end development, and I have, but I would prefer not to. It is not an efficient use of my time. I can spend a day developing the foundation for an enterprise application, or I can spend a day troubleshooting a minor user interface issue. A front end developer can spend a day developing the foundation for a mobile user interface, or they can spend a day troubleshooting a minor persistence issue.

The beginning of the end of web containers?

Is this the beginning of the end of web containers (i.e. servlet containers)?

Flexible Mobile Redirect with Red Hat JBoss Portal 6.1 Beta

In the previous post, we introduced responsive designed portal and portlet to JBoss Portal 6.1.  However, if you have existing portal applications, or if you do not want to create responsive portal website – you may want to consider using mobile redirects.  JBoss Portal allows you to manage different redirect configurations, based on conditions such as User Agent string as well as JavaScript detected attributes.

Mobile Redirect

Different devices can be redirected to appropriate website to provide the best user experience.

For example, you can setup a redirect for all of the iOS devices, and a separate redirect for Android devices.  Alternatively, you can also use JavaScript to detect whether the browsing device is touch-enabled – and then redirecting them to proper destination.

But there is more.  Let’s dive into some of these features in more details from top to bottom.
