Ajax Unplugged: Architecture and Tips for Taking Your Applications Offline

Kevin Henrikson, Director of Engineering, Zimbra

Date: Wednesday, March 28
Time: 5:25pm - 6:10pm
Location: Douglas B

Looking back, 2006 may have been the year of Ajax. Ajax did deliver a new set of internet-based applications that provide users with a rich set of integrated features traditional applications have failed to provide. But despite its game-changing hype, Ajax is limited in its usefulness, it only helps people when connected to the Web. Surprisingly enough, people want access to their applications even when they aren't connected to the Internet.

This session will cover architecture for taking Ajax applications offline. Kevin Henrikson will explore how Zimbra managed to integrate several open source projects—Jetty, Derby, Jakarta, and Firefox—to create an architecture for offline AJAX applications. Using the Zimbra e-mail client as an example, Kevin will show how others can use these technologies to take their own Web-based service offline as well.
