There are four components in the a4j: tag library which enable you to send an Ajax request. They are a4j:commandButton, a4j:commandLink, a4j:support, and a4j:poll. All provide rather specific functionality. For example, a4j:commandButton will generate an HTML button that fires an Ajax ...
One of the things that drove me absolutely nuts about Enterprise Search in MOSS 2007 was that there was no built-in way to export your managed property mappings and install them on a new server.  A third party utility on CodePlex helped, but it was still less than ideal.  Wit...
By now most web developers are familiar with Ajax and the benefits that it provides.  In short, Ajax allows you to communicate asynchronously from the browser to a server.  This is usually done using the XMLHttpRequest object which is now supported in all major browsers. ...
As 2009 comes to a close, a recent editorial in CIO magazine sums-up a nagging issue -- "Despite the emergence of improved IT management tools over the past decade, CIOs continue to grapple with the same IT challenges they dealt with five and even 10 years ago. Which can make a CEO won...
In talking with Andy Schwartz before our recent talk together at Oracle Open World, Andy mentioned that he'd like to see some new components make it in to JSF 2.1. I'd like to see that too - but what new components? To aid the discussion, I thought it might be handy to make up a lis...

I spoke on a panel at Mashup Camp this week on why Ajax Standards matter. I was quoted by Doug Henschen of Intelligent Enterprise as saying that we are locked in a struggle for the soul of the web, so I thought I would expand on that theme. Just because the web has been open so far doe...
WebMethods are one of the "oldest" kittens in the Ajax World, still many need them for their projects since they beautifully glues together "old Ajax" with "new Ajax". Now Ra-Ajax have them too :)
Before describing solutions available for rich client application development, it would be a good idea to explain what exactly a rich client application is and which rich client topologies can feasibly be built using the Java platform.

I am very easy to make angry, and sometimes I get angry mostly for "nothing" or things I shouldn't get angry for. Though more often than not my anger is channeled so that in the end I often end up with something which is useful. Here is a comparison matrix against many of the commonly ...
