In 1977, the Eagles released "Hotel California", a song about drugs and the effects an addiction has on people. Putting "We are all just prisoners here, of our own device" in the context of our digital lifestyle today we find a lot of truth. There is a reason why Google provides most of its services for free or why Amazon wants us to have an Echo in every home or why Facebook has become our directory of "friends." What looks pretty convenient is a threat. It is a threat to the end consumers but also a threat to the established economy. And even if we have the choice to check out any time - we will never leave. The Feast of the Beasts After already two decades, the Internet giants - speaking of Amazon, Google, Facebook, Alibaba and Baidu - are still collecting tons of data, filling their databases with information of everyone's knowledge, opinions, recommendations,...

What Is AJAX?

(October 7, 2005) - AJAX isn't a technology, or a language, and there's no recipe to implement it; it's just a combination of various components to achieve something you otherwise couldn't: asynchronous http requests. However, since early 2005, when Google and Flickr popularized the concept, its use has grown rapidly. The name AJAX is short for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML. It uses the JavaScript XMLHttpRequest function to create a tunnel from the client's browser to the server and transmit information back and forth without having to refresh the page. The data travels in XML format because it transmits complex data types over clear text. AJAX uses XHTML for the data presentation of the view layer, DOM, short for Document Object Model, which dynamically manipulates the presentation, XML for data exchange, and XMLHttpRequest as the exchange engine that ties every...

How to Create a Real, Real-Time Experience with Enterprise Comet

Over the next couple of years the world of Internet as we know it will change dramatically, providing users with Web applications that go far beyond what we can create today using RIA platforms such as Dojo and Flash. Next generation Internet applications will provide you with instant news and real-time information without the need for plug-ins or 20th century polling techniques. Imagine using your Web browser to monitor ANY real-time data source, from server statistics to your favorite stock portfolio, with no polling, no plug-ins and no pain! Today we can create highly interactive, plug-in free, Web applications that mimic many of the features provided by desktop applications, but there is still one area that has yet to be fully integrated - scalable server-initiated message delivery - Enterprise Comet. Comet is an advanced technique to enable real-time messaging from... (more)

Walking Through the OpenAJAX Ecosystem

As the Internet continues to evolve, new business and technical opportunities are emerging almost daily. This session will talk in detail about some of them but focus on the concepts of remixability of all types of content.

A magical AJAX-enabled JQuery grid worth looking into

In streamlining the user experience of my ATK modules, I have been considering the integration of external sources. Two of these external sources have been the JQuery plugins: Flexigrid and jqGrid. Both plugins are great. They both provide AJAX paging and record searching among other things. I went to the extent of integrating Flexigrid into the dashboard of my ATK ERP/CRM module and it brought a completely new experience to the mix. Recently I have come to find another JQuery grid plugin, which probably offers more than Flexigrid. Its name is jqGrid. ... (more)

JavaScript Hall of Shame

Here's another pet hate in web bad-practice: Javascript. Javascript is a client-side scripting language that allows really useful interaction to occur with the page and the browser, thereby improving the end user experience when using a site. It's very easy to insert Javascript in a page, not so easy to do it right. ... (more)

Java EE PaaS and Application Server Interoperability

Java EE PaaS Growth & Interoperability Concerns As observed in my earlier articles, the Java EE PaaS portfolio is gaining in strength each day, with support from major players such as IBM, Oracle, VMWare, Redhat , Google and Amazon. However unlike the Microsoft > .NET Framework > Azure PaaS equation where there is just one version of the framework from one vendor, the openness of Java EE led to several implementations of application server-specific implementations. As Java EE standards define a core set of API, frame works and features as part of its implementation, an application server is the container that executes these instructions and provides a development and runtime platform for Java EE applications. While application servers are expected to implement the Java EE specifications & technologies like (SERVLETS, JAVA SERVER FACES, ENTERPRISE JAVA BEANS, PERSI... (more)
