Today there is a spectrum of architectural approaches to AJAX solutions.  At the simple end of the spectrum HTML pages are becoming enriched with simple AJAX behaviors exemplified by the likes of Yahoo Maps, Google Suggest and a myriad of AJAX libraries and widgets that have been published.  However for more robust Rich Internet Applications (RIA) approaching the look, feel and behavior of desktop applications, a "Client/SOA" architectural approach offers many distinct advantages.  And then there's all the approaches in between.  Kevin Hakman, Co-founder of TIBCO General Interface and leading expert on AJAX technologies in the enterprise, believes that AJAX solutions today exist in four quantum states. In this session, Kevin will outline each of these four states and reveal how make sure your approach to AJAX is aligned with your strategy and skill sets while sharing real-word case studies of enterprise AJAX implementations in context of SOA infrastructure that are sure to blow away perceptions of what you thought were the limits of AJAX.
