The OpenAjax initiative has won the support of both SAP and Adobe, among others.
Among a number of other new participants, Intel, Software AG and Tibco have also joined OpenAjax.
Ajax allows developers to include more interactive user interfaces in web applications.
OpenAjax, launched this year, seeks to simplify Ajaxprogramming to make delivering these interfaces easier, particularly as there aren’t many AJAX specialists currently on the job market.
OpenAjax is also seeking to ensure that Ajax can be easily used on mobile devices too, as well as all other platforms.
Existing OpenAjax members include BEA Systems, Borland Software, the Eclipse Foundation, Google, Novell, Oracle, Red Hat, and Yahoo!
