By 17:00 REST-service started showing real message, rather then stubbed one. Not a moment to late, as we had to start the demo.
As already stated in a previous entry, the demo was a great success! The application displayed entries from our dedicated mailbox ran completely within a webbrowser, without any plugins (a modern, up-to-date browser is needed though), and accessed the Spring-based backend webapplication via JSON. Without a proper front-end, there wouldn’t be much to demo - of course every other team can say the same of their contribution.
