eWeek has a new piece claiming that support for AJAX Development Rising.
Sun gets more Ajaxian
Sun Microsystems Inc. is promoting an AJAX-supporting component model around its upcoming Java Studio Creator tool with hopes the model can succeed the way the component model Microsoft Corp. fostered around its popular Visual Basic development environment did, said Graham Hamilton, a Sun fellow and vice president of Sun’s Java Platform Group, in Santa Clara, Calif.
“The intent is to build components and create a catalog of them,” Hamilton said. “We think there are 10 to 20 common AJAX components you’re going to see” that Sun will likely build and then promote.
Jeet Kaul, executive director of Java EE (Enterprise Edition) and the Sun Java Application Server, said those two products already support AJAX and that Sun is looking to include AJAX support in other technologies.
