CommunityONE: same app 3 ways
Just listening to a talk on building the same app using JPA, Spring, and then Seam. Not the most dynamic talk, no actual coding going on, just a basic slide walkthrough. Nice to see all of these frameworks supported on Glassfish.
They should have done a comparison between JPA/Spring/Seam and a dynamic language framework like RoR or Django. So much less code using Ruby or Python. Not that there isn't a place for some of the big Java EE frameworks but sometimes you just need to build the app fast, or you are prototyping, and you can get much more milage out of the dynamic frameworks.
