AjaxWorld Special: Creating AJAX and Rich Internet Components with JSF

This article is based on, and contains excerpts from, the book Pro JSF: Building Rich Internet Components by Jonas Jacobi and John Fallows, published by Apress. Book is now available on fine bookstores and Amazon as of February 25, 2006. JavaServer Faces (JSF) standardizes the server-side component model for Web application development but doesn't standardize the presentation layer at the browser. In a series of articles we are going to look at how JSF can fulfill new presentation requirements without sacrificing application developer productivity building Rich Internet Applications (RIA). Consumer Requirements It's always the end user who feels the effect of any chosen technology, especially at the presentation layer. The end-user experience should be top priority for any developer building applications, whether they are Web applications or desktop applications. En... (more)

Yet Another Half-App From Google

Kevin Hoffman's Blog The last time I took a look at the list of products Google had to offer, my eyes glazed over and I just kept moving. The list of stuff they've got cooking was two scrolling pages long. The odd part was that the only things I ever use from Google are search and gmail, I've rarely ever touched any of the other stuff. So when I saw today that they've got a Powerpoint clone to add to their suite of online office applications, I took a look at some analysis of the features. In short, it works just like all of the other Google applications - take the features used 75% of the time by office application users and put them online and throw away the other 25%. While Microsoft has some pretty good FUD surrounding this particular design choice, they do have a point - the problem with picking 75% to implement is deciding which 75% to implement. While it mig... (more)

AJAX and Enterprise RIA Tools - JSF, Flex, and JavaFX

2008 is going to be an important year for Rich Internet Applications. Most organizations are delivering or planning to deliver Rich Internet Applications; however, at the same time, most IT managers are facing a dilemma: which Rich Internet Application technology and platform to use? The number of different frameworks and libraries is too vast to even consider evaluating a fraction of them.  To make this task manageable, I'm going to narrow things down to three different technologies for delivering enterprise-level Rich Internet Applications. While the first two (JSF and Flex) are proven technologies that have been used for a numbers of years, JavaFX is a new declarative language for building rich user interfaces using Java. It's essential for IT managers to consider and be aware that more than one delivery platform exists today for Rich Internet Applications. Tab... (more)

How Linked Data and AJAR Changes Everything

The Web has evolved into a structured data space of loosely connected databases, enabling granular data access-by-reference to Web-accessible entities, courtesy of HTTP. This evolution and the emergence of AJAX-based RIA technologies lay the foundation for a new generation of libraries, widgets, and frameworks, that together embrace and extend enterprise data access practices of yore. This session will cover access and exploitation of Web-accessible Linked Data using AJAX- and AJAR-based technologies (Asynchronous JavaScript and RDF).

AJAX for Cloud Computing

The computing forecast, quips WaveMaker CEO Chris Keene, calls for continuing heavy clouds. But what are the technical issues for building AJAX applications in the cloud? What is the most productive way to build AJAX applications for deployment to EC2? These and allied enterprise IT questions will be answered in Keene's upcoming session at the 6th International AJAX World RIA Conference & Expo, to be held October 20-22, 2008, in San Jose, California. Entitled "Cloudy AJAX: Putting RIAs on EC2," Keene's session will draw on lessons learned building enterprise applications using Dojo, Spring and other open source technologies.

He was the founder, in 1991, of Persistence Software, a San Mateo, CA-based company that created a new approach for managing data in high-transaction banking and communications syste... (more)

XAJAX Perfect Choice for Cloud Computing Environments

XAJAX at Cloud Expo An interesting thing happens when you combine toolkits like XAJAX and SAJAX and the ability to perform content-based routing: you can actually achieve function-level load balancing in both cloud-based and traditional architectures.  As you might have discovered from previous posts mentioning it, I still do web application development to support hobby interests in my (very little) spare time. I’m currently in love with the XAJAX library, which has made development of what is supposed to be a very interactive application nearly effortless. I’m also very much enamored of load balancing/application delivery and cloud computing, specifically how to get the most out of the latter using the former. XAJAX is a perfect example of how the choice of development environment can impact – positively – the ability of an intelligent intermediary to drill-down... (more)
