Tools for MVC in Java EE 8

 

clip_image002Last week at Devoxx, Manfred Riem (MVC 1.0 Co-Specification Lead) did a session on MVC 1.0 (JSR 371) to a packed room. During the session, Geertjan Wielenga (Principal Product Manager in the Oracle Developer Tools) did a cameo appearance to discuss the tooling in the context of MVC. Amongst other things, Geertjan is looking at some of the potential features an IDE could bring to simplify the development of MVC based applications.  During the session, Geertjan did a demo based on a prototype he wrote for NetBeans. This demo was also using Manfred’s experimental action based prototype.

So clearly, it’s early days! After all the MVC Experts Group has just started and is now discussing important orientations for the specification (e.g Should the Controller be based on the Servlet API or should it be layered on top of JAX-RS?). Nevertheless, it is interesting to follow Geertjan’s explorations around tooling in that space.  This also demonstrates that adding new features to NetBeans is not necessarily a daunting task!

You can find more details on Geertjan’s blog: Tools for MVC in Java EE 8 – Part 1 and Part 2.
