Improving ASP.NET User Interfaces with the AJAX Control Toolkit and Silverlight

There are many controls and extenders provided by the AJAX Control Toolkit that can be used to enhance ASP.NET user interfaces. The ValidatorCallout is used with the existing validation controls to show a nice box with the validation message that points to the field in error. The CollapsiblePanel provides an area of the screen that can be collapsed to hide the content but leave a title bar with the header. The ModalPopup displays a popup window and disables the remainder of the page. There are many controls provided which provide a much richer experience for ASP.NET Web sites.

AJAX World 2008 East Keynote: Can We Fix The Web?

The Web needs fixing. The standards and recommendations that define the Web were last revised in 1999. Since then, the Web has grown from a document retrieval system into an application delivery system. We have made significant progress since then, due to the cleverness of the Web development community and the surprising expressive power of JavaScript, but we are at the limits. The Web is no longer a driver of innovation. It is now a serious impediment. The Web is overly complex. It is visually underpowered. It is hopelessly insecure. It is now under competitive assault by new proprietary platforms that hope to capture the next generation of applications. Can a system as large and as open as the Web heal and adapt itself to the challenges of the 21st Century? Speaker Bio: Douglas Crockford, creator of the JSON data interchange format, is currently an architect at Y... (more)

iPhone Early Adopters: The Key to Free Publicity or the Fall of a Technology

Since the iPhone was first released, early adopters haven't stopped talking about what they think of the device. While the free promotion can be a great marketing tool for wireless carriers, it can be crippling if users have issues with session and network quality. Verizon's Voyager and Nokia's N810 must isolate and prioritize network problems to ensure that customer issues are addressed as quickly as possible. Ensuring that these early adopters have a positive experience is essential for having any chance at the viral adoption the iPhone experienced, along with a low customer churn rate. Speaker Bio: Mark McIlvane is President & COO of Velocent Systems. A "startup specialist," he firmly believes that startup companies are a science, and that they will succeed if managed properly. Mark joined Velocent from Personeta, Inc., where he was President, and CEO. Prior to Pe... (more)

Azul Systems and Axway Team to Address Critical Business Application Performance

Azul Systems and Axway announced that they are working together to address complex and demanding application performance needs for global financial businesses. Business critical applications present scalability and response time challenges that traditionally have led to server sprawl, low asset utilization, and growing IT administration costs. Azul Systems and Axway have partnered to address these challenges by automating check processing and other financial batch processes that are typically very time-consuming and inefficient. Joint customers have experienced a four-fold increase in throughput while reducing the number of traditional general purpose server CPUs required by a factor of ten or more, resulting in reduced total cost of ownership by as much as 30%. "We are very excited to work with Azul Systems – our combined expertise and experience is a win fo... (more)

ColdFusion 8.0.1 Ajax Improvements

Adobe ColdFusion 8 Update 1 (8.0.1) was released April 3rd (most of you knew already). The good and safe news is that it seems to work fine... nothing broke with the update. What was updated? You can get the full list here, but I will concentrate only on the Ajax part. The docs say "We have improved functionality in several areas including AJAX functions, CFPDF, and CFIMAGE. And we have updated several software libraries including Yahoo YUI, EXT JS, Spry, and the FCKEditor." The FCKEditor component used in the cftextarea tag’s rich text editor has been updated to version 2.5. As a result, the rich text editor now supports Safari 3 and Opera 9.50 browsers. This is great news, but 2.5 was released 11/30/2007... 2.6 was just released, so they went with the latest stable, though it was pretty safe to try the 2.6 RC, which was released a while back. Next, the Spry fr... (more)
