Here is an update on the current state of the Open AJAX Alliance:
Though two notable hold outs to OpenAjax still exist (Microsoft andSun), the ranks of OpenAjax continues to swell, with originalsignatories including well-known industry notables such as IBM, Adobe,and Oracle. Recent additions to membership now include over a dozen new members including SAP, TIBCO, Backbase, and JackBe. ...The article also notes that Boloker announced that the Alliance now has a new web site. There isn't anything useful on the site yet, but its worth bookmarking for future reference.
Boloker also outlined some of the future goals for OpenAjax and theywere essentially a laundry list of features you would expect anyenterprise platform to have including internationalization,localization, security, and much more. The seriousness and scale ofthe effort shows that Ajax has grown from a simple pattern fordevelopment Web applications into an increasingly well-defined andindustry supported platform model.
I'm glad to see this alliance continue to grow and develop. Kudos to Craig Becker and his team for continuing to make this stuff real. Nice job, gang.
