Hi all.

oh ic... sorry about that...
anyway, it is a framework for developing object-oriented, event-driven Web applications. you will still use java language but you will have to follow some convention set but the framework.
if you have any idea about struts... they are both frameworks but offers various degree of functionalities.

I have never used it, but looking over it breifly, it looks kind of neat? Completely takes you away from html all together it seems. I may play around with the samples and see how it is.
Things I wonder
1. Performance?
2. CSS Support?
3. Performance?
4. Performance?

Well, the more I play around with it, the more I like it. I am still unclear as to how dynamic and robust it can be. Also, from what I can tell, it is all javascript actions, so clicking on a Button will just trigger an ActionEvent which does some work. But all that is taken down to javascript where a function is just being called in the code.
I will be interestd in seeing how it handles itself when you create links to other servlets, and delivering any dynamic code.
