TIBCO Tries Cleaning Up with AJAX

Previous Acquisition Gives it Tools to Succeed, Company Says

Tibco’s purchase of  General Interface may reap new benefits for the company, as the AJAX approach to application development grows. Tibco is also focused on developing SOA solutions for companies who are trying to distribute and push apps closers to users, while optimizing performance.

“While Ajax isn't a necessary part of SOA, they're certainly an optimal pairing," said Kevin Hakman, director of product marketing for Tibco Software Inc.'s Ajax-based graphical interface tool. "They're able to leverage each other's strengths. You can develop (applications) in parallel. If teams can get together in the early phases and agree on the user interfaces, then the handoffs can be memorialized in a WSDL."

A recent Forrester Research Inc. report points out that features such as cascading style sheets, the DynamicHTML Document Object Model and a client-side JavaScript engine that decides when to call the server for backup helps to make Ajax user interfaces faster, and also lightens the server load.

AJAX is not without its critics, nor is it seen even by its boosters as a panacea for application development. Yet its growth is apparently foreseen by all, as the industry returns to previous client-server architectures when possible to avoid the key bottleneck associated with much of today’s web development—requests back to a centralized server for every new page (and all its elements), which can result in a certain sluggishness familiar to all web users.

The newest Tibco interface tool will reportedly look to leverage AJAX’s speed potential to drive new business for the company. Its interface builder follows the model of SOA tools by putting security and policy a level of abstraction away from the service creation. "We've created an abstraction layer that insulates developers from the complexities of browser protocols," Hakman said.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
