Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

Simple Web Framework

You gotta admit, the Simple Web Framework does look interesting with all of the recent Ajax talk:

The Simple Web Framework (SWF) is an event based framework targeting Struts developers who want to build rich Web applications but do not want to migrate to JSF. The SWF is built upon the same Jakarta commons basis as Struts, but uses a different request processor (front controller.) The SWF event model supports form/submit style event posting, similar to VB.NET or JSF, as well as XmlHttpRequest based event posting with In place Page Updating (IPU) rather than page reloading, similar to the techniques underlying gMail. Read the SWF Overview for additional information.

My hope is that all web frameworks have some support for IPU by the end of the year. Then I won't have to build it into AppFuse. ;-)

Very interesting. Too bad they didn't built directly on Struts via struts-chain, which would have allowed them to replace any parts of Struts they desired. Would make an interesting Struts subproject... :)

Is somebody sea the potential of this combination: IPU and portlets??? A portlet server with update portlets (not all page refresh)????
