Oracle donates Ajax tools to open source community

Oracle is contributing its Ajax user interface technology to the web development open source community.

Oracle is contributing its Ajax user interface technology to the web development open source community.

Ajax, or Asynchronous Javascript and XML, helps enable web pages to be more interactive, and is a growing open source development language among programmers.

Oracle said it was donating a set of Ajax-enabled user-interface components, and reckoned developers would be able to assemble the reusable components on a page and connect them to an application data source.

Oracle has integrated Ajax with the JavaServer Faces technology to build interactive user interfaces that run within a browser.

Ted Farrell, chief architect and vice president for tools and middleware at Oracle, said, “Java, open source and scripting languages are key elements for the development of the next wave of web applications.”

Oracle also plans to support a number of open source scripting communities and the new JSR-223 specification, to enable scripting languages, such as Groovy, Grails and PHP, to be used in Java server applications.
