In this lab, we will use NetBeans™ IDE to rapidly develop rich web application and then we will use Glassfish™ open source application server to deploy the application. You will learn many tactics and best practices on how to use jMaki to build the Ajax mashup applications, how to enable communication between widgets using jMaki event mechanism, how to work with multiple technologies (JSP, JRuby, etc) and multiple toolkits ((Dojo, Yahoo, Google and others), how to access to external RESTful web services, and how to work with database persistence data using JPA. At the end of the lab, you will be able to accomplish a real life rich web application.
