OpenAjax Hub 1.0 Approved

Tagged:  

Jon Ferraiolo announced today that the OpenAjax Hub 1.0 Specification was approved by the Interoperability Working Group, the members, and the OpenAjax Alliance Steering Committee. This represents the first approved Specification for OpenAjax Alliance per the terms of the OpenAjax Alliance Members Agreement.

OpenAjax Hub provides standard JavaScript that, when included with an Ajax-powered Web application, promotes the ability for multiple Ajax toolkits to work together on the same page. The central feature of the OpenAjax Hub is its publish/subscribe event manager (the “pub/sub manager”), which enables loose assembly and integration of Ajax components. With the pub/sub manager, one Ajax component can publish (i.e., broadcast) an event to which other Ajax components can subscribe, thereby allowing these components to communicate with each other through the Hub, which acts as an intermediary message bus. The umbrella use case for the OpenAjax Hub is the set of scenarios in which an Ajax developer needs to deploy a single application that uses multiple Ajax libraries simultaneously.

The next phase is OpenAjax Hub 1.1, which will add secure mashup support and client-server communications. We expect an initial draft specifications and open source to appear in the next few weeks.
