RIA & Ajax: Article

"AJAX with Java" Session at AJAXWorld Conference

The emergence of AJAX does not require that you scrap all of your Web applications though it does cause us to think differently

Java technology is the base for many Web application frameworks which up until recently have focused on having the application control and state on the server. The emergence of AJAX does not require that you scrap all of your Web applications though it does cause us to think differently in how we design and manage your applications. This presentation will address using Java technologies such as Servlets, JavaServer Pages, and JavaServer Faces to create interactive AJAX applications. The presentation will address the programming model, including guidelines, patterns, and APIs for using AJAX in existing Web applications and discuss how to leverage AJAX libraries and frameworks with Java. In conclusion, this presentation will show how Java and JavaScript may be used together to build robust AJAX centric enterprise applications and how the Java web tier technologies are evolving to make the development of AJAX applications available to the masses.

Greg Murray is the Servlet 2.5 specification lead and now the AJAX architect for Sun Microsystems. He has been involved with the Java Enterprise Edition web tier since the creation of the platform. Greg started a grass roots effort at Sun promoting the use of AJAX with Java technologies. He contributed to the upcoming Java EE AJAX/Web 2.0 reference application and is the creator of a new technology to enable JavaScript and Java to work together (both of which will be formally announced soon). Greg is also working the Java BluePrints and other teams at Sun on developing the best practices for enterprise AJAX and looking for ways to better integrate the Java and AJAX worlds. Before taking on his current responsibilities Greg was a member of the Java BluePrints team for which he was responsible for the recommendations and guidelines for the Java Enterprise Edition web technologies. He contributed to the design and implementation of the original Java Pet Store Demo and Java Adventure Builder reference applications. Prior to working with the BluePrints team Greg worked on internationalization tools for the globalization group at Sun.
