IBM developerWorks has this new article posted with a look at two tools that are looking helping bring more support for Ajax to the Eclipse software via its “Ajax Toolkit Framework” – Dojo and Zimbra.
The initiative puts a wide range of tools into the hands of the people who are building responsive user interfaces (UIs) into new and existing environments. The unified interface and advanced debugging capabilities in Eclipse bring an enterprise-class coding environment to the community. Eclipse’s ATF will offer easy access to toolkits from Dojo and Zimbra.
There’s a brief look at what the Eclipse Ajax Toolkit Framework is before they even get into any code. They include a small flow diagram to illustrate how it all integrates as well. After that, it’s all about the code.
All of this is due to a huge push from the Open Ajax Initiative, a wonderful collaboration between some of the major players in the web community to create better tools, resources, and even new technologies for the betterment of the web as a whole.
