'The experience that web application users expect has changed profoundly as
'RIA' style application design has become prevalent,' says Microsoft's Joe
Stagner. 'Companies developing web applications can't wait any longer to
solidify their Rich Internet Application strategy.' Stagner was talking with
SYS-CON.com this week as part of an informal, virtual round table on The
Business Value of RIAs.
"It's a 'perfect storm' for Rich Internet Applications right now, just add up
the factors..." Stagner - a popular speaker at the upcoming in New York
City in March and a senior program manager in Microsoft's Developer Tools and
Platform Group - continues.
He then lists the main five, as he views it: Browser users are more and more
experienced and non-techies have become “experienced” users. Web
access in developed counties is approaching ubiquity and access in the ... (more)

It’s been about 10 months since ICEfaces.org was launched. Ten months
isn’t a very long time – unless you’re on Internet time.
Then it’s long enough to have an impact on just about anything.
With that in mind, what’s been happening with the open source AJAX
community designed specifically for Java EE developers? Actually, quite a
lot. ICEfaces, the open source AJAX development platform that allows
enterprise application developers to create Rich Internet Applications (RIAs)
in pure Java, has been downloaded over a quarter-million times. More than
20,000 users in 36 countries have become registered users on the ICEfaces.org
Web site, and are reaping the benefits of this rapidly growing community.

AJAX has forever altered user expectations regarding the experience delivered
by the Web. In today's world, users sit at the edge of their seat waiting to
see what scrumptious eye candy AJAX will serve them next. Some of the more
notable visual effects and desktop-like interactions include Prototype-esque
fades, Dojo style fisheyes, the near ubiquitous drag-and-drop, and, of
course, who can live without the entertainment provided by the assortment of
animated loading icons that now distract us while AJAX does its asynchronous
"thing." Yes, it would appear that AJAX can do it all and that no desktop
visual effect or gesture is safe from being outsourced to the Web.

Can We Fix The Web?
The Web needs fixing. The standards and recommendations that define it were
last revised in 1999, since when it has grown from a document retrieval
system into an application delivery system. The current Web is overly
complex, visually underpowered, and hopelessly insecure. It is now under
