Kaazing’s own Marcelo Jabali posted a nice write-up on accessing a MySQL
database directly from the browser using WebSockets.
Marcelo describes the building blocks and the config changes he had to make.
Sample code is coming soon too.
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
As part of my prep for the talk we give at JavaOne 2012, I built a WebSocket
app using JavaFX 2.2 front-end with NetBeans 7.2 and the brand new JavaFX
Scene Builder 1.0.
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

I had the great privilege of being a speaker at HTML5 Developer Conference in
San Francisco recently. It was the second HTML5 Dev Conf I have presented
at, with the first one being October 2013. This time, I paired with Frank
Greco to present a session entitled “WebSockets: Past, Present and
Future”. Frank took the stage for the first half of the session, and I
followed up with some hands-on Internet of Things (IoT) demonstrations that
were integrated with Kaazing Gateway.
Introducing the Tic Tac Toe Light
My personal favorite demonstration was a project I called the “Tic Tac ... (more)
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)
