Speaker: Matt Butcher (Aleph-Null, Inc.)


This session will focus on integrating the jQuery JavaScript library with OpenCms. It will assume basic knowledge of JavaScript and JSP. Knowledge of Java will help, too.

We will look at using jQuery to manipulate the HTML DOM, add visual effects to a page, and use AJAX and JSON to query OpenCms.

We will also talk about some of the practical aspects of using jQuery together with OpenCms.
