Friday, April 27th, 2007p>I hope Joe had a nice warm beer last night after he released the final version of DWR 2.0.
We have been talking about this release for awhile, and it is great stuff. Now you can do amazing things with Reverse Ajax, and know that security is core to the framework.
We asked Joe now that this version is out of the door, what is he looking to do for future releases:
JMS support, and OpenAjax Hub support so you can do pub/sub across
reverse ajax from one browser to another and back onto an enterprise
ImageConverter to take Swing Images and turn them into Gifs. This would
make things like JCaptcha easy, but it also enable sexy things like
running a Swing app with -headless, taking screenshots and broadcasting
them to browsers. Add some event handling and you have multi-user X over
example GI ;-) and create a Java version that generates script that can
be posted over reverse ajax.
An a million dull things like a better API to convert from
ScriptSessions to HttpSessions, session delete on window close, etc.
Good stuff to come!
