Bill Dudney's talk this Wednesday, July 14th will take you through the
basics of building a JavaServer Faces application. You will understand
how to build a basic JSF application. We will build an application
manually and then build it again with Java Studio Creator. If time
permits, we'll compare the two implementations to identify when and
how to use JSCreator effectively. Bill is the co-author of three
books; J2EE AntiPatterns (Wiley), Jakarta Pitfalls (Wiley), and
Mastering JavaServer Faces (Wiley), and author of Eclipse Live
(SourceBeat). Bill is also on the J2EE 1.5 Specification Expert Group

Our Basic Concept's talk by Mark Maslyn will be on The Java Expert
System Shell (JESS).
JESS is a rule engine and scripting environment written entirely in
Java. You write declarative rules, if/then, and the system generates
code that does artificial reasoning to find solutions to your
constraints. Using Jess, you can build Java software that has the
capacity to "reason" using knowledge you supply in the form of
declarative rules. Jess is small, light, and one of the fastest rule
engines available. Come learn the foundational concepts of rule
programming and describing in the Jess language.
