AJAX Update: AjaxAnywhere – Initial Release of v1.0

AjaxAnywhere Turns Any Set of Existing JSP Components into AJAX-Aware Components without a Complex Javascript Coding.

The AjaxAnywhere project has made available its intial release, version 1.0. According to company sources, "AjaxAnywhere turns any set of existing JSP components into AJAX-aware components without a complex JavaScript coding. Simply separate your web page into multiple zones, and use AjaxAnywhere to refresh only those zones that needs to be updated."

In contrast to other solutions, AjaxAnywhere is not component-oriented.

Advantages of AjaxAnywhere :
  • Less JavaScript to develop and to maintain. Absence of commonly accepted naming convention, formatting rules, patterns make JavaScript code messier then Java/JSP. It is extremely difficult to debug and unit-test it in multi-browser environment. AjaxAnywhere gets rid of these complexities.
  • Easy to integrate. AjaxAnywhere does not require changing the underlying application code.
  • Lower technical risk. Switch whenever required between AJAX and traditional (refresh-all-page) behavior of web applications. Applications can also support both behaviors.
  • LGPL license.

Of cource, AjaxAnywhere uses XMLHTTPRequest, but you do not access it from JavaScript.
