Question for Modern Web Development with IBM WebSphere

Hi Kyle, Roland, Karl and Matthew,

I remember when I migrated from WAS v6 to v7, and all it was a disaster, because I was developing my JPS's with WebWorks (now Struts2), and all JSP's failed due to that WAS v7 doesn't support webworks. Now my question is, in this book can I find which frameworks and tools are actually supported, and which are the principal differences between versions of WAS.

Hey Rafael - well, we do include a table almost like that in the book with regard to the JEE standards supported, but we don't cover all the frameworks that are supported but not part of the standard - there are just too many for that. Effectively, what this book is about is throwing away the old way of doing things and bringing your applications into the 21st century - moving away from Web 1.0 programming with Servlets and JSP's (we have one example that covers that in Chapter 2 just to show how the new Liberty Profile works) and move towards Mobile development with Web 2.0 architectures, REST development with JAX-RS and JavaScript development with Dojo, JQuery and other JavaScript frameworks.

They key here, is the UI frameworks have moves from server side rendering to client side rendering. As such, following the modern architecture in the book, it is probably a question of how well JavaScript frameworks work in a browser or mobile shell. The server drives API's across channels, weather you use angular JS, jquery, objective-c, or swift.
