Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 3rd and 4th, 2009session
a briefing on itemscript: a system for building loosely-coupled declarative applications using JSON
About This Session
<b>Itemscript</b> is a set of standards and tools for building declarative JSON applications and working with JSON data.
This presentation introduces the Itemscript system and philosophy, the <b>Itemscript JAM</b> language, and the <b>Item Lens</b> animator.
We'll share what we've learned about collaborative, iterative development using the declarative Itemscript system.
Itemscript can be adopted to enrich or document existing applications. It can also be used to describe a loosely coupled application model that's dynamic, with hot swappable components.
We'll demonstrate <b>Item Hash</b>, a rich web application built using the Item Lens (built on GWT) and the Item Store (built on Apache Derby). We'll share what we've learned about iterative development with itemscript.
Of interest to: Web developers looking for a declarative language for AJAX applications; Java & GWT developers looking for a way to build dynamic applications; developers working with JSON looking for ideas on how to go beyond the capabilities of basic JSON.
