New "AribaWeb by Example" Tutorials!

We couldn't be happier with the reception AribaWeb has received in its first two weeks in the public eye. In the interest of accelerating the learning process for our new developers we've just released some indispensable new documentation: the AribaWeb by Example developer's guide. And, to go with it, we're releasing AribaWeb 5.0RC2.

In addition to an Overview that breaks down the role of the various modules of the AribaWeb stack, the guide contains two in depth tutorials:
These chapters take a tutorial approach to introducing key framework concepts. And along the way are links to reference documentation for key AW classes and components to enable deeper exploration.

The coming few weeks will bring complete versions of the chapters on MetaUI and MetaUI-JPA, and the GA release of AribaWeb 5.0! In the meantime, please dig in to RC2 and the new documentation and let us know what you think!
