The OpenAjax Alliance has been focusing on two things:
The big news from last week for the OpenAjax Alliance was getting these pieces interoperating with each other across a range of products and projects:
With today’s announcement, multiple vendors have implemented key parts of OpenAjax Metadata. Developer tools from Adobe, Aptana, Eclipse Foundation, and IBM’s Rational software division consume OpenAjax Metadata and various popular Ajax libraries and widgets have been made available in the OpenAjax formats.
Vendors participating in mashup-related interoperability include Google, IBM, Nexaweb, SAP and TIBCO. The members of OpenAjax Alliance have completed a reference implementation for both OpenAjax Hub 1.1 and OpenAjax Metadata.
One of the highlights of AJAXWorld today was when Adobe’s CTO, Kevin Lynch, began his keynote at AJAXWorld today by talking about how Dreamweaver CS4 was using the widget format from OpenAjax Metadata as the product’s native widget format, with demos of drag&drop of widgets from some popular toolkits onto the Dreamweaver canvas (e.g., I am pretty sure I saw Dojo and YUI widgets showing up in Dreamweaver, but the screen was a bit blurry).
