Bigger, better, and beefier, or smaller, smarter, and sexier? Which one do
Personally, I think the AJAXWorld organizers have managed to blend the two
extremely well at previous conferences and now with Jeremy's SYS-CON.TV
Webcast announcing twice as many attendees, 3-times the number of exhibitors
etc... I can only assume that this will be a Bigger, Better, Beefier,

Comet and What It Does for AJAXFor those of you attending this years East
Coast AJAXWorld Conference and are interested in server-initiated message

This article is based on, and contains excerpts from, the book Pro JSF:
Building Rich Internet Components by Jonas Jacobi and John Fallows, published
by Apress. Book is available on fine bookstores and Amazon.
In our previous article - "Rich Internet Components with JavaServer Faces"
(JDJ, Vol. 10, issue 11) - 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
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
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)
This is our last article in a series of four that have been introducing the
concepts of creating AJAX-enabled JavaServer Faces (JSF) components. In this
article we are going to summarize and encapsulate the concepts that were
introduced in the three previous JDJ articles starting with the "Rich
Internet Components with JavaServer Faces" (Vol. 10, issue 11), and design a
Google-like JDJ InputSuggest component.
We will show you how to use Mabon to create a simple and powerful input
component with built-in suggest functionality similar to what Google Suggest
provides. To make it ea... (more)
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)
