Read Sun's Take on "Open AJAX"– Tim Bray Speaks Out IBM is leading, but apparently not controlling, a bold initiative known as "Open AJAX" that brings this open-source application development approach to the forefront of the worldwide i-technology industry. The Open AJAX initiative does not have a centralized structure or website, but is rather an idea that is being formally backed by BEA, Borland, the Dojo Foundation, the Eclipse Foundation, Laszlo Systems, Mozilla Corporation, Novell, Openwave Systems, Oracle, Red Hat, Yahoo, Zend and Zimbra. A spokesperson for one of the major backers said that Google will also be backing this initiative.

Re: Top 5 posters to xml-dev

MarkLogic has kindly made this list available and the XSL list as well. Yes, it is marketing for them, but this really is a fine example of XML and XQuery in use. (I agree with the browser war comments on defining XQuery) Personally, I threw away years worth of semi-indexed XSL-List archives and said "thank you". The XSL-List is a great place to mine for examples to use as quizzes for beginner classes. This list is more for me, "don't I remember Len saying..." --Debbie -- ====================================================================== Deborah Aleyne Lapeyre mailto:[email protected] Mulberry Technologies, Inc. http://www.mulberrytech.com 17 West Jefferson Street Direct Phone: 301/315-9633 Suite 207 Phone: 301/315-9631 Rockville, MD 20850 Fax: 301/315-8285 ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Mulberry Technologies: A Consultan...

Long live SVG

SVG short for scalable vector graphics is thriving. The 7th International SVG Conference is going to be held in Mountain View, CA between Oct 2 to 4, 2009 XAML is proprietary and SVG is not, that is good enough for most folks these days. Last year the conference  was in Germany and before that in Japan. Well Google (Google Maps and Google DOcs) is behind it and is natively supported by iPhone. Most browsers except you know which does not support it. ... (more)

U.S. Census Bureau Daily Feature for June 19

WASHINGTON, June 19, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following is the daily "Profile America" feature from the U.S. Census Bureau: THE FULL SPECTRUM Profile America — Friday, June 19th. As radio broadcasting matured and television was being birthed, the Federal Communications Commission was established on this date 70 years ago to regulate use of the airwaves in the public interest. The agency's job has grown much larger and more complex in the years since, and includes all nonfederal government use of the frequency spectrum. Current issues include obscenity on the air and the blurring of distinctions between telephone companies and cable television. Among the outlets the FCC monitors are nearly 9,000 radio and television broadcasting establishments, over 5,300 cable television systems, and nearly 12,000 wireless telecommunications carriers, along with satellite and...

Google Maps and ASP.NET

I am sure that most of you have heard about or have had a chance to use Google Maps. It's a great service and I was really impressed by the responsiveness of the application and the ease with which users could drag and zoom maps from a Web browser. It has in many ways heralded the arrival of AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML), which I am sure will revitalize Web development in the days to come. What makes the service even better is the availability of the Google Maps API (Application Programming Interface) as a free Beta service. The API allows developers to embed Google Maps in their custom applications. It also allows them to overlay information on the map and customize the map to their needs. As I write this article there are quite a few sites that utilize Google Maps, and more and more of them are appearing by the day. The API by itself is pretty straightfor... (more)

Creating Web Applications with the Eclipse Web Tools Project

The Web Tools Project (WTP) by the Eclipse Foundation is a set of open source tools that substantially reduce the time required for the development of Web applications, EJBs, and Web services. The WTP's current version is 0.7.1 and version 1.0 is coming later this year. The framework provides wizards and tools to create EJBs, Web components such as servlets and JSPs, and Web services using the Axis engine. It also provides source editors for HTML, JavaScript, CSS, JSP, SQL, XML, DTD, XSD, and WSDL; graphical editors for XSD, WSDL, J2EE project builders, models, and a J2EE navigator; a Web service wizard, explorer, and WS-I Test Tools; and database access, query tools, and models. In this article I'll show you how to develop and deploy a JSP Web application with WTP in less than an hour. I'll also cover the creation and deployment of a basic servlet and editing JSP ... (more)

Google Maps! AJAX-Style Web Development Using ASP.NET

In the past few months, the design pattern of combining Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX) to develop highly interactive Web applications has been growing in popularity. High-profile Web applications such as Google Maps and A9 are currently leveraging the combination of these technologies to produce rich client-side user experiences. The individual technologies that compose AJAX are not recent developments; they have been around for some time and have been continuously updated and improved. However, it is the recent confluence of these technologies that is leading to interesting possibilities. I have three goals in this article. First, I want to provide a high-level overview of AJAX-style applications. My second goal is to provide a detailed description of asynchronous callback features of ASP.NET 2.0. Finally, I want to provide an insight into upcoming enhance... (more)

Reporting Made Easy with JasperReports and Hibernate

JasperReports is a valuable and viable reporting solution for Java Web applications. It simplifies report generation through the use of XML report templates that are then compiled using the JasperReports engine for use in reporting modules. These compiled report templates can be filled by data received from a variety of sources including relational databases. JasperReports can be integrated into Web applications and create reports in several file formats including PDF and XLS. Reporting in Java Applications Often reporting modules increase in complexity and size during the course of application development. Clients tend to demand more information from report modules when they become aware of the benefits reports offer. The reporting module developed as something of an afterthought in such environments suddenly becomes a much more integral part of the application. Rep... (more)

Developing Web Services "Eclipse Web Tools Project"

Today's trend is to integrate existing systems in a standard way to make disparate implementations interoperate. Web Services and XML came along with the ability to provide a standard communication interface between these systems, as well as the standard description language - WSDL - the Web Services Description Language that lets those systems define the structure of the services they're providing. Web Services are built using three classic components: SOAP - Simple Object Access Protocol - the XML-based communication protocol for sending data using Web Services. WSDL - Web Services Description Language - the XML-based language that describes the Web Service that's provided by a particular system and how to access it. UDDI - Universal Description Discovery Integration - a directory that helps to identify dynamically where particular Web Services are and how to fin... (more)
