Jason McGee recently put out 3 videos on YouTube for Project Zero.
Installing Project Zero on Eclipse.Project Zero - Hello World on Eclipse.Installing Project Zero CLI (Command Line Interface)
In addition, if you would like to get a hands on tutorial, Steve Ims and I put out a tutorial back in October based on the M1 driver called Introduction to Project Zero: Part 1 - Building RESTful Services with Project Zero.
Part 2 of this series is going to be released in January, probably based on M3.
There are a few other articles out there as well:
Use Active Content Filtering for Project Zero application securityPreserve the security of your Project Zero applications, Part 1: Authentication and authorizationGet started with Project Zero and PHPOptimize database configuration and dependencies of Project Zero applicationsCreate a photo album application with Project Zero and REST design principlesAdd other scripting languages to your Project Zero applications
The Project Zero website itself has a few movies, samples, and tutorials worth checking out. There is a very comprehensive Developer's Guide as well.[Read More]

The WebSphere EJB 3 Feature Pack has GA'ed.
You can download it for free and install it on WAS 6.1.
You may also want to use the Web 2.0 FP as a way to expose your EJB 3 based solutions to Web 2.0 platforms like Project Zero. The Web 2.0 FP provides API's for exposing Enterprise Components via JSON, XML, or Atom. In addition, the Ajax Proxy component of the Feature Pack can help Dojo Applications invoke other services without worrying about the cross-domain issue.
The EJB 3 FP + the Web 2.0 FP I believe gives you a nice programming model for exposing some of your Enterprise Components via JSON based services. Below is an example of an Enterprise Application Model. I have seen more and more departmental apps (usually written in something like PHP or Ruby) need to access Enterprise Services. Project Zero makes it easy to invoke HTTP based services and build quick websites with REST Based Services, Dojo, Zero Resource Modeling, Rich client eventing and feed/rest assemblies. The main programming languages for Zero are Groovy and PHP.
Of course with Ajax Patterns, you may have to think about how chatty you want to be between the browser and the server. These are general concerns for most Ajax applications when exposing data.[Read More]
I recently stumbled across an Ajax article on sys-con that I can relate to How Hard is AJAX Coding? . I run into issues like this all the time. This article made me think of putting together a quick list of Ajax tools I have become a custom to using.
FireFox Poster has proven to be a nice little tool for testing my HTTP Based services. Project Zero has an REST Doc tester now, and it provides some meta-data rendering based on RESTdoc. This is really cool because I can get a sample of my RESTful service.
As an IDE, I usually use Eclipse Europa but also have installed the Aptana Plug-in, Recently, RAD 7.5 has released an Open Beta based on Europa that you may want to try out.
I am interested in knowing what other tools people use out there?
So for my first post, I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Roland Barcia, but a lot of people call me Roly. I work for IBM Software Services for WebSphere . I am a Senior Technical Staff Member (STSM) and Lead Web 2.0 Architect for my group. My focus is to help customers apply Web 2.0 concepts using our SWG, specifically in the WebSphere Brand. I specialize in various platforms, including the new Project Zero Platform, The Web 2.0 Feature Pack for WebSphere , the EJB 3 Feature Pack, and other areas such as WebSphere MQ or DataPower in the context of Web 2.0.
I am going to post on Web 2.0 topics related to middleware, specifically building services around REST, data access in a web 2.0 context, Ajax Patterns, and anything else related to Web 2.0 that may apply. I will talk about technologies like Project Zero and the Dojo Toolkit, and comment generally on what I see people doing in the Web 2.0 space, and try to be as objective as possible.
My latest entries can also be seen on the new Developer Works Project Zero Space.
I hope you enjoy my blog!
