This one almost never saw the light of day but it has been resurrected. Not even really sure what is on it aside from Ryan Stewart :)

Ok, I was a bit quick on the draw there about chapter 8 (thanks for the comments about the broken link!) but now the link for the Enterprise Ajax chapter 8 sample is live! Get it while it’s hot.

Btw Andre is in New York this week at Ajax World East and the OpenAjax meetings so if you are also in town be sure to ping him!


* JavaOne Presentation

Posted on March 19th, 2007 by Dave Johnson. Filed under AJAX, Conference, JavaScript, Nitobi, javaone.

It appears that I have been accepted to give a talk at JavaOne this year - w00t.

The title of the presentation is “Practical Parallels: From Development on the Java Platform to Development with the JavaScript Programming Language”. So essentially I will be talking about all the tools of the JavaScript trade used for testing, debugging, deployment, and documentation.

I will be talking at 6:45 on the Wednesday night (May 9 I think) and will certainly be around for some beers afterwards :)


* Resolving <fab:Fabridge>

Posted on March 17th, 2007 by Dave Johnson. Filed under AJAX, FABridge, Flex.

In case anyone is wondering, it seems that the easiest way to include the FABridge in your Flex applications is by copying the .as file into a folder in your application named bridge. The error that most people get due to this problem is “could not resolve <fab:Fabridge> to a component implementation”.


* Enterprise Ajax Sample Chapters

Posted on March 15th, 2007 by Dave Johnson. Filed under AJAX, Nitobi, Web2.0, enterpriseajax.

So I have finally gotten around to posting a sample chapter from the upcoming Enterprise Ajax tome written by yours truly along with Alexei and Andre. If you are so inclined you can even pre-order from Amazon to the right –>

The available chapters are number 3 - currently named Aajx in the Browser - and number 8 - currently named Ajax Usability. Chapter 3 is an overview of Ajax and how it relates to many of the traditional design patterns enterprise developers should be familiar with while chapter 8 covers usability issues and solutions. Without further ado, here is chapter 3 and here is chapter 8.

Please post any comments / questions if there is anything that needs revising or is missing.


* XTech 2007 - Declarative Progamming

Posted on March 11th, 2007 by Dave Johnson. Filed under AJAX, Conference, Declarative Programming, Nitobi, Web2.0, xtech.

It looks like I will be in Paris to give a presentation at XTech 2007 (May 15-18).

I will be talking about declarative approaches to Ajax and looking at some of the important cross browser issues that may be encountered. I will also give a quick high level overview of some of the important declarative languages that we can use for guidance and inspiration.

Ping me if you will be in Paris during that time - I will also be spending a little time in London around then as well.


* Nitobi Complete UI Almost Ready

Posted on March 3rd, 2007 by Dave Johnson. Filed under AJAX, Components, Nitobi, Uncategorized.

Just one or two more days now … we were shooting for Feb 28 but we decided to show a little more love to the docs to help get people up and running and quickly.

It should be cool though! What is even cooler are the new components we will be releasing in the next month or so - so stay tuned :)
