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 fields. In contrast to using AJAX postbacks for events,
fetching data shouldn't affect the surrounding components on the page. And if
fetching data isn't affecting other parts of the DOM tree, then you don't
have to go through the full JSF lifecycle just to get the data, right?

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
One of the 2006 Soccer World Cup highlights must surely be the Trinidad and
Tobago versus Sweden game. The underdogs Trinidad and Tobago managed to push
off the onslaught from the Swedish team. The game ended 0-0, which was for
the people of Trinidad and Tobago a divine experience - their teams very
first World Cup point!
So, you are, of course, asking yourself: What are these guys talking about?
The question you should ask yourself is: Is Trinidad and Tobago going to be a
success in the Java EE world as well? With the addition of project Trinidad
to the Apache MyFaces community... (more)

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,
Smarter, and Sexier event than ever before.

The coming “Internet of Many Different Things” is not a world that is
still way out in the future.
According to researchers, somewhere between 2008 and 2009 there were as many
“things” connected to the Internet as the number of people on the planet
– over 6 billion!
According to GSMA, by 2020 there will be 24 billion “things” connected to
the Internet, of which half or 12 billion will be mobile devices.
So what’s all this going to be worth? Analyst firm IDC projects that IoT
technology and services spending will generate global re... (more)
