Hello Everyone,

I am trying to create a web application that consists of POJOs and hibernate communicating with a DB as of now. I am stuck in which UI framework/presentation layer to use. I have in mind HTML5, JavaFx, GWT. I am leaning towards HTML5, only for the reason it is the "next" big thing that companies look for in a resume when hiring. I have dabbled with JavaFx and i like it. However, I don't see companies using JavaFx unless they are naive. :-) Anyhow, does anyone have any experience or know any documentation where someone used HTML5 (presentation layer), SpringMVC and Java (backend) to build a web application? I have been "googling" around for a day and I haven't squat. Unless, I am really ignorant and it can't be done.

Thanks for any responses.

Allen

Of course it can be done. Most web apps using SpringMVC will use JSP-generated HTML for the UI. Whether it's HTML4, XHTML or HTML5 is rather moot.

My previous job was working on a few dozen such apps.

You won't find many companies advertising what they use as a technology stack, so I'm not sure what you expected to find in a search.

Hi Gallen,
It just so happened that I was reading about this a little earlier. It appears to me that Oracle is planning to use JavaFX mostly with desktop applications and use HTML5 for the presentation layer of Java EE applications. I was just thinking that I need to get up to speed on HTML5 myself. Good Luck!
