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

The tools were a pleasant surprise, they were pretty straight-forward to use.
Most of the Oracle tutorials were helpful too, although I couldn’t find
signs of an active and extensive JavaFX developer community out there.
The app I wanted to build consumes the same data source as the lightning
fast Kaazing portfolio demo.
This video demonstrates what it looks like in the development environment, as

This is the second post of a two-part blog post that discusses HTML5
WebSocket and security. The first post, HTML5 WebSocket Security is Strong,
talked about the security benefits that derive from being HTTP-compatible and
the WebSocket standard itself. In this, the second post, I will highlight
some of the extra security capabilities that Kaazing WebSocket Gateway
Kaazing WebSocket Gateway makes your Web application architecture more
secure. We leverage the HTTP and WebSocket standards as well as
Kaazing-specific technology for capabilities beyond what the standard

In his recent blog post, SPDY and WebSocket Support at Akamai Stephen Ludin
(pictured), chief product architect talks about Akamai’s vision of the Web.
Stephen discusses that at the 2012 Santa Clara Velocity conference Akamai
announced upcoming SPDY and WebSocket support. He talks about the performance
improvements SPDY and WebSocket bring to the table, about the possible
combination of the two technologies, and points to Kaazing’s demos to
showcase how the WebSocket technology is pushing the interactive web to new
