Devoxx 2008: this year's buzzword

I have attended a variety of sessions the past days, but there is 1 buzzword that is being repeated like a mantra, be it in a session about REST, web sockets or AJAX/GWT:

STATELESSNESS

REST is all about stateless service invocations, make maximum usage of the available keywords and statusses of http. Web sockets will make it possible to keep a connection open and stream data full duplex, in whatever protocol (anything based on TCP). Heck, we could even access our mainframe from within the browser! And AJAX/GWT? Well you know: single screen applications no longer require the server to preserve a state.

Is there still a future for Spring WebFlow then...?
