Nexaweb Announces Enterprise Web 2.0 Fall eConference Series

Learn How Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) Enable the "Information Workplace" and the "Agile Enterprise"; Notable Speakers Include Representatives From Forrester, Nexaweb, and Roundarch

BURLINGTON, MA--(Marketwire - November 5, 2007) - Nexaweb Technologies®, Inc., the leading application platform provider for the Productivity-Driven Business, today announced its Fall eConference Series created to help IT directors, executives and software developers examine how Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) enable the agile enterprise and what Forrester dubs the "Information Workplace." Technical sessions will cover best practices surrounding large-scale Ajax application development.

Nexaweb's eConference Series will explore the next generation digital marketplace and how enterprises are able to become more productive, agile and efficient through the adoption of RIAs, enterprise mashups and composite applications. The series is divided into two tracks: "Enterprise Web 2.0 for Developers" and "Enterprise Web 2.0 for Executives," and it will address how to effectively optimize Ajax in the enterprise and how to overcome the technical issues for more cost-effective application development and maintenance.

The "Enterprise Web 2.0 for Executives" track includes:

"Rich Internet Applications: Enabling the Information Workplace," November 13, 2:00-3:00 p.m. ET

--  Presenters:  Erica Driver, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research;
    David McFarlane, COO, Nexaweb
--  Forrester defines an Information Workplace (IW) as a "next-generation
    digital workplace based on portal, collaboration, content management, and
    office productivity technologies, plus many emerging technologies in the
    Web 2.0 and Social Computing space." Attendees will learn about real-world
    IW strategies and how RIAs are enabling enterprises to become more
    productive, agile and efficient by empowering knowledge workers with the
    information they require, where and when they need it.

"Rich Internet Applications and the Agile Enterprise," November 27, 2:00-3:00 p.m. ET

--  Presenters:  Geoff Cubitt, President & CTO, Roundarch; David
    McFarlane, COO, Nexaweb
--  Agile enterprises use RIAs to empower workers with access to critical
    information that helps them make better decisions, faster. RIAs also bring
    together data from within and outside the enterprise and present it to
    users in a familiar format, resulting in a more productive and efficient
    workforce. Attendees will hear real world case studies about enterprises
    that have increased their agility, productivity and efficiency using RIAs,
    and learn how your organization can quickly and easily begin to enjoy the
    same benefits.

"Optimizing Ajax Applications," November 20, 2:00-3:00 p.m. ET

--  Presenter: Bob Buffone, Chief Architect, Nexaweb
--  As Ajax continues to mature, its use in large, robust applications is
    becoming more prevalent. However, enterprise-caliber applications
    require more extensive amounts of code, which leads to the inevitable
    performance bottlenecks and memory constraints associated with
    non-trivial application development. Attendees will receive detailed
    information on how toperformance-tune large Ajax applications by using
    a variety of available tools and techniques. Special attention will be
    paid to systematic techniques that yield the biggest return in the
    shortest amount of time, including:
    --  Mozilla's Rhino JavaScript engine as a complete performance
        monitoring tool for Ajax code bases;
    --  Injecting monitoring code into every function of JavaScript within
        an application to create a complete performance picture;
    --  Locating performance issues through drilldowns of function call
        counts, total time spent, average time per call, and call stacks;
    --  Start time optimization using Dojo, Gzip, Compression

"Easy Ajax Development with Markup + POJO," December 4, 2:00-3:00 p.m. ET

--  Presenter:  Bob Buffone, Chief Architect, Nexaweb
--  Leading enterprises rely on declarative Ajax to develop RIAs,
    enterprise mashups and composite applications. This approach separates
    the UI from business logic, resulting in faster and more cost-effective
    application development and maintenance. In this session, attendees
    will explore the advantages of the markup + POJO approach, covering
    topics such as:
    --  Declarative UI
    --  Declarative modifications
    --  Data binding
    --  Service invocation
