(Gawkwire) – Developing a Web application today is like entering a programmer’s Tower of Babel. The user interface is written using HTML, cascading style sheets (CSS) and JavaScript with JQuery, or a similar library. The interaction with the backend is via POST, JSON or XML; the server-side logic is written using Java or PHP, and finally data is stored in SQL or another file format. Every step in that process brings the risk of mismatched conversions requiring coding workarounds.

WSO2 will conduct a free introductory webinar on how to escape this Tower of Babel by using Jaggery. A new pure JavaScript server-side scripting engine, Jaggery:

·     Offers a completely JavaScript way to write all parts of Web applications and services, reducing or eliminating conversion mismatches across the different layers of the Web application and API development experience.

·     Closes the gap between Web applications and Web services by allowing a developer to create both applications and APIs at the same time.

·     Combines the strength of JavaScript with the flexibility and freedom of PHP-like scripting environments.

The one-hour technical session, “WSO2 Product Release Webinar: Introducing Jaggery, the Server-Side JavaScript Framework for Composing Web Apps," is being held twice on Thursday, May 31: 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. PDT for the Americas and 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. GMT for Europe and Asia-Pacific.

Composing Web Applications with Jaggery

The webinar will introduce Jaggery and examine its core API. The session also will present a three-step guide on how to get a Jaggery application up and running. Additionally, the webinar will explore best practices for optimizing the use of Jaggery. Key topics will include how to:

·     Work with the request, response and session.

·     Expose JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) without doing extra work.

·     Create and read feeds.

·     Persist with relational storage and the use of a metadata store.

·     Address file handling.

The webinar will be presented by Nuwan Bandara, WSO2 associate technical lead and a member of the WSO2 development technologies management committee. Nuwan focuses on the WSO2 Gadget Server, WSO2 Mashup Server, Jaggery, and API Store. He also has provided technology consulting on customer engagements, including identity solutions and systems integration for the telecommunications, banking, and financial services industries.
