It was a little disappointing. I suppose I was expecting to see an app created from scratch...
Rob Harrop did cover a lot of good info though. Demonstrated integrating Maven and Jetty. He also pointed out some of the difficulties of Maven and showed a good way to get around. He also demonstrated many techniques for testing while developing.
There was a (very quick) demonstration of Site Mesh for site wide formatting. I'm always surprised that more people don't just use servlet filters for that. I guess we'll be seeing copied includes, and tiles for a long time. Site Mesh is a step forward but, I think I'll stick to filters. They're a lot more versatile and allow changing look and feel on the fly.
anyway, off to lunch
