The Evolution of Cloud Connectivity By Frank Greco “Intelligence is based on how efficient a species became at doing the things they need to survive.” ― Charles Darwin “My theory of evolution is that Darwin was adopted.” ― Steven Wright Yesterday In case you missed it, the first phase of cloud computing has left the building. Thousands of companies are in the cloud. Practically all organizations regardless of size already have production applications in a public, off-premises cloud or a private cloud. Yep. Been there, done that. And the vast majority of these applications use the classic “SaaS-style” public cloud model. Someone develops a useful service and hosts it on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud Marketplace, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) or one of several other cloud vendors. Accessing this external service is typically performed via a well-d... (more)

More precisely, it has been donated to the Apache Software Foundation and is currently hosted in the Apache Incubator - http://incubator.apache.org/projects/adffaces.html. Craig McClanahan is mentoring the project during the Apache incubation. The Apache MyFaces community is also involved in the project to assist with graduation from the incubator, into t... (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)

Enterprise Comet: Awaken the Grizzly!

There's a common misconception among many end users, consumers, and developers that AJAX is the ultimate solution for the Web and that it can provide all the same functionality as a rich desktop solution. Sure, AJAX can cover most of our expectations for a rich client, mimicking functionality provided by a desktop application, but there's still one area that has yet to be fully integrated ­ scalable server-initiated message delivery. With server-initiated message delivery, all end users of a particular application are simultaneously notified of any changes to the application sta... (more)
