Showcase: JotSpot Live

Category: Showcase

The Jot folks are really getting into Ajax. Firstly they talked about howJotSpot does AJAX, Dojo-Style, which makes sense since Alex Russell works over there.

Then they talked about JotSpot Live, which is:

a real-time wiki interface that allows multiple users to edit the same page at the same time. Calling it “SubEthaEdit for the web� is an oversimplification, but that’s probably the quickest way to wrap your head around the concept. Unlike SubEthaEdit, JotSpot Live doesn’t require any special client software: it’s a web application that runs in Firefox, Internet Explorer, and Safari, using nothing but HTML, script, and CSS.

I also like how they use JavaScript on the server side, which is going to happen more and more IMO. Especially as the next version of Java is going to have JavaScript builtin.

Kudos to the Jot team.

Sorry for the off-topic comment, but what’s the odd set of characters that I’ve seen so frequently on this site: ’ ? For example, this articles uses “that’s,” so I tend to think it’s an apostrophe, but why not use an apostrophe or some ASCII code instead of this set of non-latin characters?
