Transcript

  • 1. Report from AjaxWorld West 2008 Conference codecentric GmbH Fabian Lange © 2008 codecentric GmbH
  • 2. Overview 3 days, 15 exhibitors, 100 sessions in 6 parallel tracks Enterprise RIA, Frameworks & Toolkits, Web 2.0 & Mashups Hot Topics, iPhone, Future of the Web , Took place in The Fairmont hotel San Jose, California My focus was on Enterprise RIA, Future of Web and Frameworks These slides contain condensed & subjective information about 2 Products: Keynote KITE, Appcelerator 3 Key Topics: Applications in the Browser, HTML 5, The Cloud Asorted nice-to-know stuff from the sessions know My prediction on the evolution of web 2.0 Main message: Ajax brings value for everyone and will be important for applications running on a SOA Stack 2 © 2008 codecentric GmbH
  • 3. Keynote KITE – Testing Web Performance Worldwide KITE, short for Keynote Internet Testing Environment Web performance tool working similar as JMeter Can run recorded scripts from 240 locations worldwide and give a detailed report More detailed reports than YSlow, and testing how real users would experience the application. No data center local testing. Could complete codecentric performance management offering for internet sites 5 global sites testing is free 3 © 2008 codecentric GmbH
  • 4. Appcelerator – Agile UI Development For customers the application is the UI Specifications never help defining the UI Agile methods help getting faster feedback Still slow because one has to always create the heavy serverside Appcelerator can create Rich UIs without server code Appcelerator UIs are not “throw away” prototypes, but evolve into the real user interfaces The next version supports prototypes that can be commented by customers directly in the application It is lightweight and free Ideally suited for agile development 4 © 2008 codecentric GmbH
  • 5. Future Apps are Running in the Browser SOUI – Service Oriented User Interfaces SOFEA – Service Oriented Front End Architecture Server will act only as data provider, not executing application logic Applications are connected via the network, but also work offline Browser can open WebSockets to directly access anything, bypassing proxy server applications. Content Delivery Networks will be the main source for content AppServers just orchestrate: Deliver URLs for obtaining images, runtime engines and frameworks. Provide information where to obtain data from Act as helpers for some calculation noone wants to do. Keeps track of business processes, not application state Saves a lot costs on server infrastructure 5 © 2008 codecentric GmbH
  • 6. HTML5 – Future Standard Existing Today Evolved from massive need for standards Once a section of standard is agreed upon, solutions supporting it appear Videotag – Adobe Flash Eventsource, WebSockets – Kaazing Canvas – All major JS Frameworks HTML5 has really nifty stuff that is either implemented by browsers already or easily implementable by JavaScript . Applications can use it already. Ajax has always been driving Web Standards to the limit, so working in a not yet standardized environment is well known. 6 © 2008 codecentric GmbH
  • 7. All Move into the Cloud “The Cloud” is shaped as term for the internet acting as service and storage for everyone Data comes from the cloud SOA Stacks and Databases can be accessed from everywhere Applications come from the cloud Mash-ups and Standards allow aggregation of distributed applications ups Development happens from the cloud Collaboration tools allow virtual teams Servers are in the cloud Amazon takes the leading role “The Cloud” will be the next hype for sure 7 © 2008 codecentric GmbH
  • 8. Asorted Microsoft concentrated on streaming technologies recently. One result is Sliverlight DeepZoom. Try it http://memorabilia.hardrock.com/ Silverlight is heavily fighting for market share, currently only 20% of all browser have installed it. Silverlight allows development in any .net language Dojo.Data and Google Gears support Web Apps offline, enabling thinking in a new way of web application architecture Oracle thinks REA creates value for companies because: Employees get empowered with the tools to innovate, rather being restricted by processes Oracle wants to sell the whole Oracle stack for that but that’s not accepted because it is not open Simple Text Oriented Message Protocol allows Ajax applications to communicate with Java MDBs. Very nice! See http://kaazing.com Web Sockets are a cool and powerful thing. Kaazing recently released Kaazing Web Gateway to support all the new protocols. 8 © 2008 codecentric GmbH
  • 9. Asorted cont. Accessing resources via REST/JSON becomes more popular. Also true for Databases. See http://nextDB.net for challenges to overcome. Open Ajax alliance provides OpenAJAXHub 1.1 to solve security issues within mashup applications, allowing safe third party mashups. Adobe heads towards open standards, while tools remain commercial Adobe focuses on the Open Screen Project: start designing for smaller Screens and only later for desktops. Over 50% of internet devices are mobiles. Pretty ambitious project. JSF 2.0 coming soon, but not bringing anything new. Standardizing old JSF Ajax workarounds. JSF might not be the ideal web 2.0 platform. . Portal 2.0 Spec also struggles with legacy. No real hope for near future. Icefaces and Richfaces seem to be the only survivors with Ajax and JSF. 9 © 2008 codecentric GmbH
  • 10. Asorted Cont. ADF Faces has automatic adaptive components for different devices. Doesn’t free one from thinking about that screens are not unlimited. Unfortunately ADF is not free for non Oracle AS GWT 1.5 supports Java 5 – Making development really effective GWT as really powerful and proven concepts, but don’t use JSNI – its ugly. JavaScript language redefinition will remove bad parts, leaving “the good parts” Enterprises might jump onto the toolboxes rather on the technologies. They want Data+Process Data+Process=UI – Isomorphic or Curl provide such tools 10 © 2008 codecentric GmbH
  • 11. The Future ? Toolkit oversaturation -> Time for Consolidation > My prediction: jQuery will take the slot for basic JS framework. It is fast and well designed YUI will be the widget framework, because its not too complex for mid size apps GWT will be the toolkit of choice for Java Rich Web Apps* Flash/Flex/Air will be the runtime for media and CPU heavy applications JavaFx is very late on that train and might not make relevant market share Users will accept browser plugins (flash, sliverlight etc) more easily No compelling reason for big companies to move into web2.0 yet How users will use applications will be more in focus rather than how we can easily make a UI for our business logic. * It makes me sad, but I think Eclipse RAP wont make it for many usecases 11 © 2008 codecentric GmbH
