JBoss Seam represents the primary counter to the hot and successful Spring Framework and perhaps even Ruby on Rails framework. The open source lightweight Java EE 5 standards based JBoss Seam framework is a part of this second wave of open source lightweight Java that’s taking place. This book aims to take advantage of this hot area. It gives an overview of Seam related JSF and EJB 3 as found in Java EE 5. It provides information on the tools to make development with Seam easier as well as a functioning in depth demo to truly learn how to use Seam. Tips and tricks to using Seam are also included.
This book not only teaches the necessary skill set to become a proficient Ruby on Rails developer, it also explains the theory needed for the developer to explore and learn on their own. The reader will not be burdened by yet another set of "hello world" and other mundane examples. In this text they will learn Ruby on Rails by creating real world projects; a task manager, RSS aggregator, a community manager similar to MySpace.com, and an Amazon based store. While the book covers the basics for beginners, it also offers more advanced tools, including Ajax and a detailed discussion of ActiveRecord and ActionPack.

The Google Maps API is a showcase example of the Web 2.0 development paradigm, designed to be invitingly simple for developers to incorporate dynamic mapping services into Web applications. Beginning Google Maps Applications with Rails and Ajax takes a developer’s perspective, showing how to integrate mapping features into their Rails-driven Web applications. The book shows how to draw on data sources such as the U.S. Census Bureau’s TIGER/Line data and Google's own geocoding feature to build comprehensive geocoding services. The book includes guided examples demonstrating how to encourage user interaction such as pinpointing map locations, adding comments, and building community-driven maps.
Web frameworks are playing a major role in the creation of today's most compelling web applications, because they automate many of the tedious tasks, allowing developers to instead focus on providing users with creative and powerful features. Java developers have been particularly fortunate in this area, having been able to take advantage of Grails, an open source framework that supercharges productivity when building Java–driven web sites. Grails is based on Groovy, which is a very popular and growing dynamic scripting language for Java developers and was inspired by Python, Ruby, and Smalltalk. Beginning Groovy and Grails is the first introductory book on the Groovy language and its primary web framework, Grails. This book gets you started with Groovy and Grails and culminates in the example and possible application of some real–world projects. You follow along with the development of each project, implementing and running each application while learning new features along the way.
