Building RIAs with a Direct RIA Solution

My submission to 7th International AJAX World RIA Conference & Expo has been accepted. I will have a session at 7th AJAXWorld Conference on June 23, New York. Topic: Building Rich Internet Applications with a Direct RIA Solution Summary: Building an enterprise application is never an easy task, not to mention enriching its user experience at the same time. Scaring JavaScript spaghetti, tedious asynchronous communicate between client and server, and the danger of exposure of business logic to the client make Web application complex, less secure, and un-maintainable. ZK is a Direct RIA framework for Java that solves all of above issues with its Direct RIA programming model. With the Direct AJAX programming model, Web applications can access data model and back-end integration directly. No more asynchronous communication between client and server, neither the security of... (more)

Open Source Alternatives to LiveCycle Data Services

Clear Tookit on Ulitzer Development of enterprise Flex/Java rich Internet applications benefits from using automated data integration solutions and productivity tools. Currently Adobe offers LiveCycle Data Services ES2 (LCDS) and open source BlazeDS 3. While LCDS is certainly a great piece of software for those who are looking to support thousands of concurrent users via the most efficient communication protocols, its high licensing cost makes LCDS unaffordable for the vast majority of the enterprise applications let alone small businesses and startups. If you are looking for an alternative solution for integrating Flex and Java EE layers, consider using GraniteDS, WebOrb, and Clear Toolkit. The first two products offer their own implementation of the AMF protocol, and Clear Toolkit uses the AMF libraries that come with BlazeDS . If you are looking for an open sour... (more)

Widget Wars: OpenSocial vs. OpenAjax vs. W3C Widgets

The popularity of widgets these days has brought to attention the need for interoperability, i.e. for widgets developed for one site or platform to be able to run in other sites and widgets developed by different people to be able to work with each other. So much so that I know of at least 3 somewhat competing specifications for widgets. There's the gadget portion of the OpenSocial specs which was adopted from the Google Gadgets work. Then there's OpenAjax which is more broadly focused on Ajax interoperability but has a lot of pieces geared towards widget interoperability. And finally there's the W3C's Widgets 1.0 Family of Specifications. Based on a preliminary analysis, the OpenAjax specs appear to be the most comprehensive for widget interoperability issues but OpenSocial seems to have gained more adoption. The W3C work appears to be moving very slowly (no surp... (more)

JSF Mojarra Extension Tags Validation and Focus

Here is something you may or may not know. JSF Mojarra comes with a small extension tag library with three tags: regular expression validator, credit card validator, and focus setting tag. They are available since JSF version 1.2_09, but maybe even earlier (I didn’t check). Page setup Before using any of the tags, add this xml namespace to your Facelet page: xmlns:mj="http://mojarra.dev.java.net/mojarra_ext" Regular expression validator mj:regexpValidator is probably all you need to validate any kind of input by setting the right expression.
