PrettyFaces at JAXCon Munich

We are proud to highlight Christian Kaltepoth, who gave a fabulous presentation on [[PrettyFaces]] at WJAX/JAXCon in Munich on Wednesday, November 10th – 2011. Christan presented with Andy Bosch, who gave a short intro of URL-rewriting, what it means for applications in general, and why you should do URL-rewriting. Christian then took over after roughly 15 minutes, and began to highlight [[PrettyFaces]], and how it streamlines and simplifies JSF development by introducing page-load actions, simplified navigation, injection of values parsed, converted, and validated directly from the URL, and translation of existing non-RESTful application URLs into well-designed, clean, human-readable URLs. The demo application, which was both stylish and comprehensive, is available online. If you are interested in applying [[PrettyFaces]] to an existing or new application, be sure to check out the examples. Overall the talk, which was given in native German, was very interesting. Unfortunately we do not have a translation of the presentation into English, but the slides are posted below, and there is a lot of good information. Funniest quote from the talk, “Nobody likes a 3-kilometer URL.” — So very true! So thanks Christian, you and Andy did a fantastic job. We hope to see you up on stage again soon!
