September 15, 2009 – jRecruiter 2.0 – Ajug
‘s Job Posting Service
[jRecruiter|http://code.google.com/p/jrecruiter/] is AJUG’s [Job Posting Service|http://www.ajug.org/jrecruiter/] and after a long time in the making, version 2.0 was recently deployed. This month, Gunnar Hillert, devloper of jRecruiter will demo the appllication and he will talk about the underlying used technologies. In that regard, this month’s presentation will follow a slightly different format. Instead of talking about single technology or framework, we will discuss a wide variety of different standards, libraries and frameworks that help developers implement web applications efficiently.
We will certainly talk about the frameworks used in jRecruiter, such as Struts 2.1, Spring 3.0, Hibernate 3.x and Maven. However, we will also touch subjects such as how you optimized the load times of your UI using JAWR, YSlow and Firebug. Also, how can you integrate your application with Twitter and Google Maps.
