Who Are The All-Time Heroes of i-Technology?

I wonder how many people, as I did, found themselves thrown into confusion by the death last week of Jean Ichbiah (pictured), inventor of Ada.  Learning that the inventor of a computer programming language is already old enough to have lived 66 years (Ichbiah was 66 when he succumbed to brain cancer) is a little like learning that your 11-year-old daughter has grown up and left home or that the first car you ever bought no longer is legal because it runs on gasoline in an age where all automobiles must run on water. How can something as novel, as new, as a computing language possibly already be so old-fangled that an early practitioner like Ichbiah can already no longer be with us? The thought was so disquieting that it took me immediately back to the last time I wrote about Ichbiah, and indeed about Ada Lovelace for whom his language was named. It was in the context ...

Where Are RIA Technologies Headed in 2008?

I am always being told off by i-technologists for quoting Picasso as having said that computers are useless. But I still love his reasoning? "Because they can only give you answers." Picasso, like AJAXWorld Magazine, liked questions. So we thought we would share with you what some of the world's leading rich Internet application pioneers are thinking may be the next questions that we need to see answered. From that readers can themselves infer where AJAX is headed. What are the top questions to ask next about AJAX? Eric Miraglia of Yahoo! 1.  (From March'08) How do I calculate the ROI of building my RIA on the iPhone SDK vs using AJAX? 2.  How do I assess the performance of my app and decide what to do next to make it faster?  3.  When it comes to accessibility, how do I know what's required of me for my rich web apps?  Beyond what's required, what makes good business se...

"Mobile Web 2.0" – How Web 2.0 Impacts Mobility & Digital Convergence

This is a series of three articles – the first (this one) outlining the significance of Web 2.0 technologies, the second article discussing the impact of Web 2.0 technologies on mobility and the final article on the impact of Web 2.0 technologies on digital convergence. If you are already familiar with Web 2.0, my goal, in a nutshell (no pun intended!) is to extend Tim O Reilly’s seven principles to mobility and digital convergence. Thus, I will not attempt to add to the body of knowledge in terms of basic Web 2.0 concepts themselves. I would rather prefer to build on some of the excellent work done on the subject from folk such as Tim O Reilly, Richard McManus and others. I will use their work as a background and extrapolate the basic Web 2.0 principles to mobility and digital convergence (areas which I am more familiar with). My approach will be to ask a series o...

StrikeIron Survey Reveals Web 2.0 Challenges

StrikeIron announced the results of a survey conducted to identify the leading challenges faced when integrating live data into new applications and enterprise mashups. Web 2.0 drew over 10,000 technical, design, marketing and business professionals who are building the next generation Web. Mashups are a new genre of interactive Web applications that use content retrieved from external data sources to create entirely new and innovative services. They are a key feature of the second generation of Web applications informally known as Web 2.0. Respondents were asked to rate on a scale of one to five the degree of challenge faced when integrating live data into their applications and enterprise mashups.  The obstacles listed included:  ·         Quality of available data ·         Finding relevant data ·         Ease of integration ·         Securing consistent access ...

AJAX, Java, Flash, and .NET

Enterprise Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) are the next evolution of business application development. There are four different approaches to RIA development - AJAX, Java, Flash, and .NET - and many different RIA solutions available today. This article answers the following questions: What are enterprise RIAs? Which approach should you use? Which solutions are appropriate for you? And how are RIAs being adopted today? Welcome to a New Paradigm The Web began as an environment for content sharing and small-scale data transfer via e-mail, newsgroups, and so forth. These initial uses quickly led to more sophisticated applications particularly in the e-commerce arena. However, the Web wasn't architected with rich application services in mind. Its document-centric model has by and large thwarted developers looking to leverage the Web as a platform for enterprise-class ap... (more)

AJAX and the Spring Framework with TIBCO General Interface

Introduction Ajax Ajax (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) means many things to many people. However, one thing is certain: To users it implies a higher level of functionality and an improved experience. To the developer, another certainty follows: More work. The only question is how much work and to what end. There are at least three separate tracks to consider: Communications and messaging, user interface components, and client side scripting. Since in the Ajax world the server no longer sends down html to the browser, your developers need to agree on a message format. The user's expectations of a dynamic UI are high. They want a desktop experience and Web simplicity. You will need to develop or obtain components to meet many requirements: Legacy integration, micro-content, predictive fetch, drill down, visual effects, specialized and generic UI widgets. Finally, your... (more)
