In this article, which focuses on the impact of Ajax on mobile application development only (i.e. he does not discuss Ajax in general), SOA Web Services Edge speaker Ajit Jaokar contends that - since his e-mail, calendar and other applications are on the web, and he can store all my documents on the web, all he needs is a browser. "One client to rule them all! Thus, today I would use a ‘browser-only PC’," he adds. Earlier this year, I published an article called AJAX for Mobile Devices Will Be the Hallmark of "Mobile Web 2.0" in 2006. It created quite a stir .. and I am thankful for all the feedback. Specifically, I would like to thank C Enrique Oritiz , Thomas Landspurg , Paul Golding and Jan Standal (Opera) for their feedback. Special thanks go to Paul Golding for brainstorming some of the ideas in this article with me. I did not intend to write a follo... (more)

We live in uncertain economic times where money is tough… but the cloud and more importantly, services within the cloud appears to offer value for money. You pay for what you use and so on. But… will this lead to chaos? A decade or so ago the likes of PC World started to make a big impact on business computing. You could nip down there in the lunch break and buy a wireless router or a printer, pop back to the office and have it all connected up to the corporate network. Hu... (more)

The OpenAjax Technology Vision: Accelerating Customer Success with AJAX

OpenAjax ­ Fulfilling AJAX's Promise One would think that an industry would slow down as it matures, but the Web has proven to be just the opposite. Innovations are happening at breakneck speed. Companies have to move faster than ever to keep up and survive. AJAX is clearly a case in point. The term "AJAX" was first mentioned publicly in February 2005 by Jesse James Garrett. But roughly 18 months later, we have hundreds of companies delivering AJAX products, dozens of AJAX open source projects, and nearly everyone in the industry planning to adopt AJAX techniques as part of their future Web development strategies.
