OW â€“ Lincoln, thanks for meeting with me today.
LB3 â€“ Thanks Oliver, itâ€™s nice to see you again!
OW â€“ Likewise LB3. So, youâ€™ve got a couple projects I wanted to discuss with you. Letâ€™s just start with what theyâ€™re named and a little about them.
LB3 â€“ I have a lot of projects, including two that many people probably already know, PrettyFaces and Rewrite - URL Rewriting for Servlet and Java EE apps - but the two that I want to tell you about today are called Errai, which is from JBoss, and the other one is a project called SocialPM, which is one of my personal side projects thatâ€™s just getting off the ground. SocialPM is a social project management tool that actually uses Errai, which is a web framework for building rich, interactive, highly-responsive distributed applications.
OW â€“ Umm, you know Iâ€™m a marketing guy, right? What exactly does this mean?
LB3 â€“ Oh right, sorry. So, Errai lets you do things like really fast flashy visuals, interactive stuff for users, super responsive apps. Hopefully making things more productive than what weâ€™ve got traditionally with normal server-side type web frameworks.
