Once the news got out that it had welched on its 2005 patent pledge to the
open source community and had threatened TurboHercules (TH) with patent
infringement, IBM had to come up with some cover story or another to contain
the fallout. So it switched places with many of its observers and turned
conspiracy theorist, accusing Turbo Hercules of guilt by association.
Besides calling TurboHercules a couple of dirty names - a stock response to
any threats to its monopoly in order to scare away its rivals' customers...
And besides claiming that it didn't really flat out actually and in fact
accuse TH of infringing - "we did not make any explicit assertions or
claims," it said, "that TurboHercules had violated" that list of 173 patents
and patent applications we sent them under the assertion that "IBM believes
[this IP] will be infringed by an... (more)
The 'Flex Developer Bootcamp' is in full swing in New York City, at AJAXWorld
Conference & Expo 2007 East, as SYS-CON Events presents the first in the 2007
series of this sellout one-day program of hands-on learning about Flex...not
by talking about it as much as by doing it.
With developers having traveled to New York's Roosevelt Hotel from as far
away as Texas, India and Canada, to take advantage of the "Learning by
Doing" approach that lies at the heart of the Bootcamp, the collective
concentration in the Roosevelt's packed Plaza Suite was almost tangible.
After an intense morning led by Yakov Fain, this afternoon Dr Victor
Rasputnis (pictured above) had attendees reading data SQL-Java-Flex, having
fun with customizing DataGrid controls, making their own Flex libraries,
updating Flex-Java-SQL, and learning how to support complex transactions.

AJAX's benefits to consumer sites are well known. But what benefits can AJAX
bring to enterprise environments? As a more technologically savvy, confident
workforce enters the marketplace, the demand for the integration of more
