The Evolution of Cloud Connectivity By Frank Greco “Intelligence is based on how efficient a species became at doing the things they need to survive.” ― Charles Darwin “My theory of evolution is that Darwin was adopted.” ― Steven Wright Yesterday In case you missed it, the first phase of cloud computing has left the building. Thousands of companies are in the cloud. Practically all organizations regardless of size already have production applications in a public, off-premises cloud or a private cloud. Yep. Been there, done that. And the vast majority of these applications use the classic “SaaS-style” public cloud model. Someone develops a useful service and hosts it on Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud Marketplace, Google Cloud Platform (GCP) or one of several other cloud vendors. Accessing this external service is typically performed via a well-d... (more)

Super-Charge JSF AJAX Data Fetch

In our last article - "JSF and AJAX" (JDJ, Vol. 11, issue 1) - we discussed how JavaServer Faces component writers can take advantage of the new Weblets Open Source project (http://weblets.dev.java.net) to serve resources such as JavaScript libraries, icons, and CSS files directly from a Java Archive (JAR) without impacting the application developer. In this article we'll address the need to fetch data using AJAX with JavaServer Faces (JSF) components. The most common use cases for fetching data with AJAX are to populate dropdown lists and add type-ahead functionality in text fi... (more)

The Benefits Of The AJAX RenderKit

In an effort to provide developers with a productive environment, Oracle has been working on a very rich UI component framework for several years. This framework - ADF Faces - has now been donated to the open source community. More precisely, it has been donated to the Apache Software Foundation and is currently hosted in the Apache Incubator - http://incubator.apache.org/projects/adffaces.html. Craig McClanahan is mentoring the project during the Apache incubation. The Apache MyFaces community is also involved in the project to assist with graduation from the incubator, into t... (more)

Presso – a WebSocket Powered Social HTML5 Presentation Tool

At DevCon5 in Santa Clara Peter Lubbers, founder of the San Francisco HTML5 User Group, gave a keynote, titled The HTML5 Connectivity Revolution. For his presentation Peter used a WebSocket enabled presentation tool built by Kaazing, called Presso. Presso serves as a prime example for the types of apps you can build using real-time Web technologies. Peter’s presentation could be followed along by the audience on their tablets and laptops. As Peter was advancing the slides, attendees saw the same animation on their screens. Presso also features a remote control, allowing the pres... (more)

AJAX and Mozilla XUL with JavaServer Faces

In our previous JDJ article - Rich Internet Components with JavaServer Faces - we discussed how JavaServer Faces can fulfill new presentation requirements without sacrificing application developer productivity building Rich Internet Applications (RIA). We discussed how JSF component writers can utilize technologies, such as AJAX and Mozilla XUL, to provide application developers with rich, interactive and reusable components. In order to use AJAX and Mozilla XUL with JSF, component writers have to make sure to provide any resource files need by these technologies, such as images... (more)
