In previous episodes we have covered SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) pretty extensively as well as the advantages derived from adopting this new architecture style for enterprise applications.
Although we covered in depth the Enterprise Service Bus concept, so far we haven't spent much time discussing the presentation layer. That is due to the fact that there are many options available to create it. So, which one should you choose, JSPs with AJAX or portlets with Flash? Not all these technologies are equal, some are better suited for particular needs than others. Your decision may also be influenced by the available skills in your team. In this presentation we discuss and compare some of the most popular options such as XForms, JSF, AJAX and PDF forms.
