Enterprise-Class Web 2.0 Development Gets a Boost from OpenAjax Alliance

OpenAjax standards initiatives will enable better AJAX developer tools

At AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo, the OpenAjax Alliance announced the successful interoperability of two key technologies with more than a dozen AJAX products. These advances will further enable software developers to create enterprise-class web sites with Web 2.0 features using its open standards software.

AJAX, based on open formats such as HTML and JavaScript, is the web development technology behind most interactive, rich Web 2.0 applications - such as mashups, widgets and gadgets. With today's milestone, the Alliance is showing that the technologies announced in the spring can successfully interoperate with AJAX products.

The OpenAjax standards address two workflows: AJAX Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) and AJAX mashups. These OpenAjax standards initiatives will enable better AJAX developer tools and will promote greater security and interoperability with mashups. This is critical as Web 2.0 applications extend from the consumer space into the enterprise.

Adobe, Aptana, the Dojo Foundation, the Eclipse Foundation, Google, IBM, ILOG, Lightstreamer, Nexaweb, ProgrammableWeb, SAP and TIBCO are among the vendors who received interoperability awards today for OpenAjax standards for Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) and mashups, a website or application that combines content from more than one source into a browser-based web application.

The OpenAjax Alliance is an organization of vendors, open source projects and companies using AJAX that are dedicated to the successful adoption of open and interoperable AJAX-based Web technologies. OpenAjax members include more than 100 organizations including Adobe, the Eclipse Foundation, Google, IBM and Microsoft working towards the mutual goal of accelerating customer success with Ajax. The prime objective of the group is to accelerate customer success with Ajax by promoting a customer's ability to mix and match solutions from AJAX technology providers and to help drive the future of the AJAX ecosystem.
