Asynchronous AJAX for Revolutionary Web Applications at AJAX World

Jean-Francois Arcand and Ted Goddard's Session at AJAXWorld, March 18-20, in New York City

Emerging AJAX techniques, variously called AJAX Push, Comet, Reverse AJAX and HTTP streaming, are bringing revolutionary changes to Web application interactivity, truly moving the Web into the Participation Age. This session provides a detailed introduction to the Asynchronous Web and its application to social computing, explaining the underlying protocols and APIs, the challenges for application servers, and the high-level techniques available to application developers. Attendees will take away the information they need to add multi-user collaboration and notification features to their application, whether they develop with Dojo, DWR, or ICEfaces, and whether they deploy on Jetty, Tomcat, or GlassFish.

Speaker Bios: Jean-Francois Arcand has worked for Sun Microsystems since 2000. He currently works on GlassFish, mainly on the WebContainer and the new Java NIO-based http engine called Grizzly. Before joining Sun, he worked as a software architect for compagnies such as France Telecom, Microcell Telecom, and HMS Software in both Java and C++. Jean-Francois lives and works from home in Prevost, a small city in Quebec where life is perfect.

Ted Goddard is the senior architect of the ICEfaces AJAX framework. Following a Ph.D. in mathematics, he proceeded with postdoctoral research in component and Web-based collaborative technologies. Ted currently participates in the JavaServer Faces and Servlet expert groups.
