(Santa Clara, CA) - Imbibing AJAX cheek-by-jowl with Yahoo!, Sun, Intel, Nortel Networks, McAfee, and a host of other major headquarters buildings is an uplifting experience. It is as if the AJAX approach, which got itself a shiny new name in San Francisco in February of 2005 but is based on technologies spawned in the Valley and elsewhere (including Redmond) long before that, has come "home."
What leads me to so fanciful a conclusion? Well, for one thing the world's first-ever AJAXWorld Conference & Expo[disclaimer - I am Conference Chair] is taking place, from tomorrow, here and not anywhere else in the USA. Since the sponsorships of this 3-day event sold out within a few weeks of announcing the show, and since 750+ delegates are expected to be in attendance, the choice of location must have resonated with a very broad spectrum of attendees.
Sun seems certainly to sense this happy sense of completion and, its own Swing initiative notwithstanding, has embraced AJAX with open arms. Just look at the sessions that Sun is giving at AJAXWorld, where with 6 speakers it has the largest presence of any single company at the event.
For example Greg Murray - former Servlet 2.5 specification lead and now the AJAX architect for Sun - will in his session address using Java technologies such as servlets, JavaServer Pages, and JavaServer Faces to create interactive AJAX applications.
Craig R. McClanahan, original author of the Apache Struts framework for building Web applications, is giving a session entitled "Encapsulating AJAX Functionality in JavaServer Faces Components." He was part of the expert group that defined the servlet 2.2, 2.3 and JSP 1.1, 1.2 specifications and is also the architect of Tomcat's servlet container Catalina.
