The tools were a pleasant surprise, they were pretty straight-forward to use. Most of the Oracle tutorials were helpful too, although I couldn’t find signs of an active and extensive JavaFX developer community out there. The app I wanted to build consumes the same data source as the lightning fast Kaazing portfolio demo. This video demonstrates what it looks like in the development environment, as well as running, side-by-side with the aforementioned JavaScript implementation of the Kaazing portfolio demo. Step 1 – Creating a JavaFX App First, I created a new project: JavaFX > JavaFX FXML Application. Step 2 – Defining the UI Then, using the new JavaFX Scene Builder, I created the grid layout I wante... (more)

AJAX and Mozilla XUL with JavaServer Faces

In our previous JDJ article - Rich Internet Components with JavaServer Faces - we discussed how JavaServer Faces can fulfill new presentation requirements without sacrificing application developer productivity building Rich Internet Applications (RIA). We discussed how JSF component writers can utilize technologies, such as AJAX and Mozilla XUL, to provide application developers with rich, interactive and reusable components. In order to use AJAX and Mozilla XUL with JSF, component writers have to make sure to provide any resource files need by these technologies, such as images... (more)

Why the Web Dinosaurs Died

A fast-moving Comet is about to impact the Internet. When it hits, it will wipe away the architecture flaws we have lived with for the past 15 years and allow a new World Wide Web to evolve.

Brace for Comet Impact Comet (or Reverse AJAX) introduces a significant departure from the stale “click-and-wait” interaction we traditionally associate with Web applications, and resurrects push-style c...

Building a Simple Peer-to-Peer WebSocket App – Part 2

In Part 1, we looked at the completed application, which we’ll start building here. Before we get started with actual development, let’s take a look at the starting application. Open a new browser tab or window with the starting application in JSFiddle. The starting app is as simple as it gets. First, take a look at the HTML code, then read the explanations below the code snippet. Kaazing WebSocket Tutorial - JMS
