Best of this Week Summary 17 November - 30 November 2008

  • Interesting recent long discussion (with a bit of framework flame-war in between) and tips on when to pick what web client framework. Tapestry, Wicket, Stripes, GWT, Flex seem to jump out.

  • Interesting Javascript optimizer: Razor Optimizer. It dynamically analyzes the runtime profile information, trying to load each Javascript function only when needed, potentially creating 60-90% savings. It does require a client and server component. The question is: are you prepared to take a (small?) risk that your Javascript is dynamically modified?

  • Good article that explains why Scrum often fails as implementation of Agile. Lots of times Scrum is only seen as fast Sprints and Scrums. But: "Don't leave out the 'regular' agile good engineering practices". Check also the comments for good tips.

  • A good introduction to RESTful webservices.

  • Great, soapUI 2.5 now also suppports testing RESTful webservices. It includes testing JSON output.
