Ajax mature enough for the enterprise

Edwin Aoki, technology fellow at AOL LLC., delivered a keynote address titled "Ajax in the Real World" at The Ajax Experience conference in San Francisco on Wednesday. A veteran of user interface technology development, having worked at Apple Computer Inc. and Netscape, prior to its acquisition by AOL, he talked about how Ajax and rich Internet technology has grown and matured to the point that it is ready for the real world. Following his keynote, SearchWebServices talked to Aoki about the latest work at AOL, which includes implementing one of the hot topics at the conference, "progressive enhancement," which starts with the simplest HTML for limited browsers and slowly builds up to high end Ajax. It is a way to serve various browser capabilities including screen readers and cell phones. He also talked about what Ajax and JavaScript need to do to reach full maturity including identity management and data storage support. These next steps for the technology are issues that he and other members of the Ajax community are hashing out face-to-face at the Ajax Experience, he said.
