Best-selling Author on Servlets and JSP, Marty Hall, to Keynote at GIDS 2010

GIDS is the Biggest Independent Summit for India's IT Professional Ecosystem. Registration for Event Open.

Bangalore, March 5, 2010: Marty Hall is an expert on JSP, servlets, Jakarta Struts, JSF, Ajax, GWT and Java programming. He is the author of six popular books on Java and Web technology that have been worldwide bestsellers, been translated into 15 languages, as well as being reprinted in English in India. Marty is coming this summer to India's biggest summit for the software developer ecosystem -- Great Indian Developer Summit (www.developersummit.com) -- to conduct a keynote address comparing various approaches to building rich Internet applications with Ajax. Although it is widely used in diverse types of Web applications, Ajax development is difficult, and there are several fundamentally different strategies to building Ajaxified Web applications. At GIDS 2010, to be held 20-23 April in Bangalore, Marty's keynote address will survey the three most important of these approaches: using an Ajax-enabled JavaScript library such as jQuery, Prototype, Scriptaculous, Dojo or Ext/JS, using a Web framework such as JSF 2.0 or Struts 2 that has integrated Ajax support, and using the Google Web Toolkit (GWT) to build "pure Java" Ajax applications. The talk will compare and contrast these three approaches, discussing the types of applications that fit best for each option.


At GIDS Marty will also conduct several in-depth sessions -- comparing the most popular JavaScript libraries to help choose the best Ajax/JavaScript Toolkit that fits your needs, explaining how Version 2.0 of the Google Web Toolkit works and the types of applications for which it is best suited, teaching how with JSF 2.0 developers can Ajaxify their applications with little or no JavaScript programming, and discussing the powerful yet relatively simple tools the Prototype library provides for various types of Ajax requests.


Marty has authored Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages, More Servlets and JavaServer Pages and Core Web Programming. Core Servlets and JSP is the single most popular book on servlets and JSP internationally, was selected by amazon.com as one of the best five computer programming books of the year, has been the overall weekly #1 bestseller at fatbrain.com nine different times, and spent more than six months as one of the top 10 best-selling computer-related books at amazon.com and at Borders stores. He has given lectures and training courses in seven countries and dozens of US venues, including speaking five times at JavaOne. He also directs the Java and Web technology concentration areas in the Johns Hopkins University part-time graduate program in Computer Science. Marty is the president of coreservlets.com, a US-based consulting and training company focused on Ajax and Java EE.
