Session Summary for Attendees:  Although it’s very popular, the JavaScript/HTML5/REST architecture doesn’t lend itself easily to use by newbies. Even experienced developers often find themselves spending too much time on mundane coding rather than on delivering important functionality. A new generation of development tools aims to provide a faster approach for JavaScript-based development through the power of visual development. This demo focus session discusses how Oracle approached development simplification for its developers (and for you) and shows you the results of its efforts.
