Rich Internet Application Architectures: Part III: Canoo's ULC
Etienne Studer, the meeting presenter, is a senior software developer at Navis LLC, where he is in charge of the RIA framework for Navis' next-generation products. Before joining Navis in 2004, he has worked for Canoo, the Switzerland based company behind ULC.
Two years ago, Navis LLC recognized that their DHTML based web applications, used for mission-critical supply chain execution software, were lacking from a user experience perspective. After thorough evaluation, Navis decided to replace their Struts-based UI framework with the pure Java RIA solution UltraLightClient (ULC).
After summarizing the decision process behind this significant architectural change, this talk will focus on the experiences made when switching to the ULC-based UI framework, as observed during development, deployment, and customer runtime. In addition, other architectural decisions that have increased developer productivity, application robustness, and customer satisfaction will be discussed, with a critical eye on the pros and cons. Finally, a live demo of a production system will be given.
SDForum's SAM SIG focuses on Software Architecture & Modeling.
