RIA & Ajax: Article

Transforming J2EE applications into Web 2.0 using GWT

Pathfinder's Co-founder & CTO Dietrich Kappe to Present at SYS-CON's AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo

The pressure is on to keep pace with Web 2.0 entrants into the marketplace. Rewriting is expensive; adding AJAX widgets results in a complex, unmaintainable application. Both require you to hire scarce JavaScript developers. Google Web Toolkit -- the SDK that allows you to write AJAX interfaces in Java -- enables your Java developers to layer a desktop-like interface on top of your Web app. Learn to analyze the service profile of your application, to change HTML views into XML or JSON services, and to resist opening security holes by putting state and control flow logic into the client.
