In this comprehensive course, you will get an overview of the techniques and tools you need to build and test modern web applications. You'll learn how the versatility of Spring MVC, as well as the elegance of its annotation-based configuration, make it an excellent server-side framework choice for tasks as diverse as serving AJAX toolkits and even building lightweight, web service interactions. On the client side, Spring JavaScript adds a lightweight abstraction over popular AJAX toolkits and provides you with a clean programming model. On the server side, Spring Faces provides a similar streamlined programming model with server-side Java Server Face (JSF)-based components.
You will learn how Spring Web Flow (SWF) can put the fun back into Web Development and allow you to manage the state and navigational needs of your application. SWF provides you with such modern features as partial page rendering and AJAX pop-ups. SWF also makes it possible for you to tap into the best part of JSF – its component model – within a Spring MVC application. This makes JSF much easier for and more accessible to developers with Spring MVC, Struts, or other request-driven framework backgrounds.
