Interoperable AJAX Tools and Mashups

IBM's Jon Ferraiolo to Present at SYS-CON's AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo, Oct. 20-22, in San Jose, CA

This session describes current work at OpenAjax Alliance around AJAX tooling and AJAX mashups. AJAX developer tools have been hampered by lack of interoperability among various IDEs and AJAX toolkits. This session introduces a new XML industry standard, OpenAjax Metadata for AJAX Libraries, designed at OpenAjax Alliance's IDE committee by representatives from Adobe, Aptana, Eclipse/ATF, and Microsoft Visual Studio. This standard will result in plug&play between AJAX IDEs and toolkits.

The second major topic in this session focuses on mashups. Mashups have the potential for revolutionizing the way Web applications are developed where users create their own applications, but there are interoperability challenges and security risks. In order to unleash the industry, OpenAjax Alliance has developed an open source secure mashup framework as part of OpenAjax Hub 1.1 (leveraging a set of techniques called "SMash" that were originally developed by IBM Research and allows for secure mashups that run in today's browsers) and a companion set of widget standards (OpenAjax Metadata for Widgets).
