You can always read the source code, but documentation has its place!
There are a few short guides to help you get started:
Getting Started explains installation
and getting the examples running.
Creating a New App details the small number of steps
required to create a new app and get it running.
Setting up IDE Integration describes how to configure your Eclipse or
IntelliJ IDEA IDEA for optimal AW development productivity.
AribaWeb by Example
The AribaWeb by example guide introduces the key concepts of each layer of the AribaWeb
stack while building a simple example application.
Start with the Introduction to the AribaWeb Stack to learn the role of the
major components of the AW stack. The move on to the chapters on the AribaWeb Core
and Widgets frameworks.
Check out the API Documentation.
AW Supports "enriched JavaDoc" for all UI components: in addition the the Java-level API
documentation, most UI components detail their bindings, named content areas, etc.
Examples and Screencasts
The best way to learn AW is to:
- Watch the screencasts (there are loads of them, and many go into great detail)
- Check out the included examples
The "Demo" app (which you can start simply by clicking on bin/start in the AW distribution)
contains many examples. Make sure to turn on Component Inspector as you click through --
then you can "X-ray" in on the code behind what you're seeing.
