eCirkit.com is a new social networking platform that has it’s fair share of Ajax sprinkled in.
- On your profile page you can mouse over your user interests and a tooltip popup appears showing the full text of your interests, like favorite TV shows. You can then click the tooltip popup to go into edit mode, edit your data right in place, mouse out and your changes are sent to the server via Ajax.
- On your manager page, you can view your emails, then click an individual one to see full view in the main content window. From there you can reply and delete.
- You can use drag and drop to delete users from your contact list into a trash can. The contact is deleted from the backend server.
- You can use drag and drop to drag 2 of your contacts into the eCirkit connect panel, then type and introduction email. This will introduce the 2 users to each other, and they can then add each other to their contacts list.
The backend is a full Java J2EE web server. I use JSP pages and servlets in the web tier, EJBs in the middle business layer tier, and hibernate persistence layer for the database access.
