Will "Mobile AJAX" Dominate Web 2.0?

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)

Yahoo Reportedly Puts Zimbra Up For Sale

Yahoo has evidently been rummaging through its closet looking for stuff it can sell off, especially now that it’s decided it’s a consumer company and will put $100 million into promoting that image starting Tuesday. Anyway, that business construction reportedly means it doesn’t need Zimbra and its online, cross-platform Collaboration Suite, the open source-cum-commercial e-mail-shared calendar-instant messaging-and-document authoring widgetry it paid $350 million for it almost exactly two years ago. It’s been peddling the thing around, according to Boomtown’s Kara Swisher, the Yahoo familiar. Yahoo’s reportedly not harboring any delusions that it’ll get anywhere near what it paid for the thing. Swisher thinks it could go to rival Google or maybe Comcast, a Zimbra client, or maybe a private equity firm, maybe even Redpoint Ventures, one of Zimbra’s original investors... (more)

An Introduction to AJAX with Ross Dargahi and Satish Dharmaraj

Developers from around the world logged in today via http://webcast.sys-con.com and enjoyed a high-level webinar from Ross Dargahi and Satish Dharmaraj devoted to AJAX, the technology whose name was coined just 7 months ago but which has in fact been available for a great deal longer, even though it is only today that it is picking up speed...fast. Coined by Jesse James Garrett, what AJAX does was nonetheless already available to developers, via a 'poor man's remote procedure' (RPC), years ago. Ross Dargahi and Satish Dharmaraj explained that AJAX is a combination of technologies available in most modern browsers (Firefox, Netscape 7, IE5 and above, etc). The webinar covered all the elements of AJAX, including XMLHttpRequest which was invented by Microsoft and has been available since IE4.0. Those attending learned how AJAX enables the development of apps with "desk... (more)

Flashback to January 2006: Exclusive SYS-CON.TV Interviews on "OpenAjax Alliance" Announcement

Read Sun's Take on "Open AJAX"– Tim Bray Speaks Out IBM is leading, but apparently not controlling, a bold initiative known as "Open AJAX" that brings this open-source application development approach to the forefront of the worldwide i-technology industry. The Open AJAX initiative does not have a centralized structure or website, but is rather an idea that is being formally backed by BEA, Borland, the Dojo Foundation, the Eclipse Foundation, Laszlo Systems, Mozilla Corporation, Novell, Openwave Systems, Oracle, Red Hat, Yahoo, Zend and Zimbra.

What Makes AJAX So Special? AjaxWorld Magazine's Executive Survey

 Jeremy Geelan's i-Technology Blog: "Truly, Madly, Deeply AJAX" View on SYS.CON.TV: Real-World AJAX San Jose "AJAX Power Panel" Not since the formation of NATO in 1945 have four letters been combined to such globe-spanning effect, nor has any 4-letter acronym since then been the subject of such hyperbole. (Quod erat demonstrandum.) I refer of course to "AJAX." What is it about AJAX that sets it apart from other programming acronyms and approaches? SYS-CON Media's AjaxWorld Magazine asked a number of its most active and industry-engaged contributors to offer their thoughts. Here are the results. BILL SCOTT, an Interaction Designer and AJAX Evangelist at Yahoo! has no doubt what makes AJAX so special. "Since the 80s, the desktop application world has had a rich a set of user interaction idioms and ways to get at large sets of data and present them in an almost unlimited typ... (more)

Applying AJAX: Speeding the User's Journey from Idea to Information

In his deeply useful session on Monday, in San Jose, CA, at SYS-CON Events' "Real-World AJAX" One-Day Seminar, Eric Miraglia from Yahoo! Presentation Platform Engineering (pictured) is going to be underlining one of the major themes of the full day's professional education: namely that the challenge for developers is not merely to add AJAX to applications but rather to shorten the interaction loop that separates users from information - and the loop through which users travel when they enhance or share that information. "AJAX, of course, helps us respond to that challenge in unprecedented ways because it marries the vast power of the server to a richly interactive client interface that can play in any modern browser on any OS platform," says Miraglia. But we mustn't, Miraglia adds, lose sight of the fact that AJAX is only useful insofar as we have smart ideas about h... (more)

Moving Beyond AJAX: 2008 Is the Decision Year For RIAs

[For an A-Z of RIA Frameworks, from Adobe AIR to Zimbra, click here] Is AJAX fit to serve as spear carrier for next-generation Web technology? That question, asked by the San Diego Business Journal in March 2007, was answered by the sheer scale of the last two AJAXWorld Conference & Expos, in March (New York) and September (Santa Clara). The undisputed answer is "Yes!" So many companies have jumped aboard the AJAX train that when we wanted to do an informal survey the other day on upcoming Web and Internet technology trends, I was able to quickly compile a list of 800 different companies that are leaving the station. AJAX is moving toward the enterprise. Google, the company that helped light the AJAX wildfire in the first place by using it in Google Maps and Gmail, has since then released a paid version of its Web-based applications for small businesses, Google Apps Pr...
