Silverlight for Java Enterprise
At first sight Silverlight doesn't seem to be the first choice for Java frontend development.
But having a closer look the Silverlight/Java combination offers unparalleled usability and developer productivity especially compared to existing HTML/JSF/AJAX approaches.
Two factors that are very important in todays competitive markets.

Silverlight integrates very well with Java technologies on many levels such as build and development, operations and testing, just to name a few.

If you want to know more, please attend my session the RIA Forum in Zurich - Switzerland on 29.October 2010.
I would be glad to see you there.

If you are wondering how to create DSLs using .NET, the tutorial Implementing a Domain Specific Language on .NET might be interesting for you.

The case study shows how organisations can greatly increase efficiency by the use of modern technology approaches such as Groovy, SOA and Domain Specific Languages (DSL).
You can read the case study here.
