Thinking in Web 2.0: Sixteen Ways With apologies to Bruce Eckel, I sat down this afternoon and put together a draft list of the first-order elements of Web 2.0 thinking.  It's not that I have the hubris to consider this list official in any way but it should be a serviceable starting point for debate, discourse, and reference.  I'd also like to give credit to Jeremy Zawodny for his write-up pointing me to Tom Coat's excellent presentation notes from his Future of Web Apps talk which partially inspired this effort.  I think both of them have really solid source material.  But they still don't quite capture a complete high-level picture of the ingredients, forces, and decisions that have to go into thinking about, using, and building complete Web 2.0 software experiences. That simple fact is that creating software of any kind is hard work.  And creating good software is... (more)

i-Technology Viewpoint: Is Web 2.0 the Global SOA?

The subject of Web 2.0 has become profoundly important over the last year. Web 2.0 describes the next generation of the Web as an application platform where most of a user's software experience resides.

Dion Hinchcliffe's SOA Blog: Creating Open Services That Last And Anyone Can Use

Creating Open Services That Last (And Anyone Can Use) I just finished up a podcast discussion this evening on Web 2.0 and Global SOA with David Linthicum that he was kind enough to host on his popular SOA Expert Podcast show.  We were discussing how the software worlds are rapidly converging into each other with mash-ups and Ajax helping drive a seemingly unquenchable demand for open services on the Web.  All of this while individual organizations themselves are trying to build almost identical service ecosystems behind the firewall and create their own type of mash-ups, known as...

Adobe Announces A New Flex/AJAX Bridge

Adobe has announced a new Flex /JavaScript bridge; known as the Flex AJAX Bridge (FABridge), it is a small, unobtrusive library of code that you can insert into a Flex application, a Flex component, or even an empty SWF file to expose it to scripting in the browser, according to Adobe. Adobe says the bridge enables seamless integration of Flex applications with the browser’s JavaScript environment. The Flex DOM and ActionScript environment can be completely manipulated from the JavaScript environment and vice versa, and complex types can be marshalled across seamlessly. The ... (more)
