Presenting: AJAX Push for Revolutionary Enterprise Applications

By: Ted Goddard, Sr. Software Architect at ICEsoft, and Micha Kiener, Head of Research and Development at mimacom.

Ajax Push Explained!

Ajax Push is a revolutionary capability of the ICEfaces framework that enables asynchronous, web-based push of presentation changes to the client browser based on server-side events. Any web application where users are observing dynamic data can benefit, as Ajax Push brings that data alive with dynamic, instantaneous updates. When multiple users are interacting with the same data, Ajax Push enables real-time collaborative features, because everyone can be instantly aware of each others actions. Ajax Push is a fundamental capability of the ICEfaces framework, available from the very first release. The framework handles all of the low-level intricacies of the push mechanism, providing the developer with a simple, pure Java API for application development. This frees the developer to focus on creative aspects of push-style application development. For more information visit: Ajax Push Explained.
