Workshop in Zurich ...and San Jose: Designing The Boundary - Rich UI Meets Efficient Java EE Backend

Last year there were too many registrations - so I had to repeat the workshop next day. I actually didn't expected that much interests on Java EE 5, EJB 3 and JSF (class evaluations are available here). This year the workshop will start, with what the last ended - the design of boundary between the presentation and business tier. The students asked me about this topic - and here we go :-). I intend to introduce Domain Driven Design in contrary to SOA together with JSF, EJB 3, Wicket, GWT and Google's Guice and concentrate especially on the boundary between the two layers. I would like to highlight the issues and challenges like eager / lazy loading, versioning, detachment caching, data binding, data transportation between layers, working with WYSIWYG editors and transactions.

I will explain the idioms with lots of code and some slides - the same procedure as last year :-). I really looking forward to this event. The location is beatiful (Zurich Lake, in the near of sail boat harbor), well organized with really nice students. I will give this workshop in German - however if you prefer English - come to San Jose - to the U.S. JAX :-).


A lot of things you talk about look interesting to me but I can't attend your workshops or read your books because I live in Canada and don't speak German. Will there be English translations of your books or course materials that people can get online? How about online trainer lead or self-paced courses like Sun does?
