It is fully based on namespaces and does not extend native JavaScript types with other libraries and existing user code.

  • tibet:- TIBET is the oldest AJAX project.
  • TIBET solves the URI problem through a number of mechanisms.

First,TIBET supports a unique syntax of Unix paths. TIBET can automatically adjust paths to reference the current application or library "home" so that all your URI references resolve without changing code even if you switch between file and http-based launch models. By using Tibet you can create your own variables as reference points.

Second, TIBET lets you map URIs using a configuration file .Using TIBET you can write code that references ~/foo.html and map that URI to different URIs based on user, role, and mode. Here you can define different load and storage handlers to let you customize how data is managed, including building server simulations so you can develop in complete parallel while the server team builds out your web services support layer.

Third, TIBET supports local cache management which is built on top of standard HTTP header information. Using TIBET you can define local stores for common lookup tables.

LibXmlRequest:- It is a simple wrapper around XHR.The XmlRequest library contains a two public request functions, getXml and postXml, that may be used to send synchronous and asynchronous XML Http requests from Internet Explorer and Mozilla. The XmlRequest library contains a two public request functions, getXml and postXml, that may be used to send synchronous and asynchronous XML Http requests from Internet Explorer and Mozilla.

RSLite:- RSlite is an lightweight implementation of remote scripting . It is widely browser-compatible (Opera!) but limited to single calls and small amounts of data.

sarrisa:- Sarissa is an ECMAScript library acting as a cross-browser wrapper for native XML APIs. It offers various XML related goodies like Document instantiation, XML loading from URLs or strings, XSLT transformations, XPath queries etc and comes especially handy for people doing what is lately known as ?AJAX? development.Supported browsers are Mozilla - Firefox and family, Internet Explorer with MSXML3.0 and up, Konqueror (KDE 3.3+ for sure), Safari and Opera. Konq and Safari offer no XSLT/XPath scripting support AFAIK.

XHConn:- XHConn is a small Javascript library that exposes a data object with a single method: connect.Invoking this method creates an asynchronous XMLHTTPRequestt and then triggers the specified callback function with the server's response.

CPAINT:- CPAINT (Cross-Platform Asynchronous INterface Toolkit) is a multi-language toolkit that helps web developers design and implement AJAX web applications with ease and flexibility. It was originally born out of the author's frustration and disappointment with other open-source AJAX toolkits. It is built on the same principles of AJAX, utilizing JavaScript and the XMLHTTP object on the client-side and the appropriate scripting language on the server-side to complete the full circle of data passing from client to server and back.

Sajax:- Sajax (Simple Ajax Toolkit), is an open source tool designed to help websites using the Ajax framework (also known as XMLHttpRequest). It allows the programmer to call ASP, ColdFusion, Io, Lua, PHP, Perl, Python, or Ruby functions from their webpages via JavaScript without performing a browser refresh.The Sarissa Ajax library is my choice for Ajax'ing for a few reasons:

  • It's small (11.8kb!)
  • Cross browser compatible and
  • Escapes the information received nicely

JSON/JSON-RPC:- JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a lightweight data-interchange format. It is easy for humans to read and write. It is easy for machines to parse and generate. It is based on a subset of the JavaScript Programming Language, Standard ECMA- rd Edition - December . JSON is a text format that is completely language independent but uses conventions that are familiar to programmers of the C-family of languages, including C, C++, C#, Java, JavaScript, Perl, Python, and many others. These properties make JSON an ideal data-interchange language.

Direct Web Remoting:- In the simplest terms, DWR is an engine that exposes methods of server-side Java objects to JavaScript code. Effectively, with DWR, you can eliminate all of the machinery of the Ajax request-response cycle from your application code. This means your client-side code never has to deal with an XMLHttpRequest object directly, or with the server's response. You don't need to write object serialization code or use third-party tools to turn your objects into XML. You don't even need to write servlet code to mediate Ajax requests into calls on your Java domain objects.

SWATO:- Swato is an opensource framework that help you develop your webapps easier.

Java BluePrints:- Java BluePrints is Sun Microsystems' best practices for Enterprise Java development.

It uses AJAX to refresh ?zones? on a web page, therefore AjaxAnywhere doesn't require changes to the underlying code, so while it's more coarse than finely-tuned AJAX, it's also easier to implement, and doesn't bind your application to AJAX (i.e., browsers that don't support AJAX can still work.). In contrast to other solutions, AjaxAnywhere is not component-oriented. You will not find here yet another AutoComplete component. Simply separate your web page into multiple zones, and use AjaxAnywhere to refresh only those zones that needs to be updated.

AjaxTags component of Java Web Parts:- AjaxTags was originally an extended version of the Struts HTML taglib, but was made into a generic taglib (i.e., not tied to Struts) and brought under the Java Web Parts library. AjaxTags is somewhat different from most other Ajax toolkits in that it provides a declarative approach to Ajax. You configure the Ajax events you want for a given page via XML config file, including what you want to happen when a request is sent and when a response is received. This takes the form of request and response handlers. A number of rather useful handlers are provided out-of-the-box, things like updating a <div>, sending a simple XML document, transforming returned XML via XSLT, etc. All that is required to make this work on a page is to add a single tag at the end, and then one following whatever page element you want to attach an Ajax event to. Any element on a page can have an Ajax event attached to it. If this sounds interesting, it is suggested you download the binary Java Web Parts distro and play with the sample app. This includes a number of excellent examples of what AjaxTags can do.

Since VWG, like most .NET AJAX frameworks, is implemented using an IHttpHandler, it can still interact with ASP.NET pages enabling usage of VWG within an existing ASP.NET site.

xWire:- xWire is a mature, object-oriented, enterprise-class toolkit that consists of both client (browser) and server (Java) editions. You can use either or both editions depending upon your environment. xWire was originally built back in and originally supported only IE. Support has expanded to IE, IE and Firefox.

It handles the tedious and repetetive tasks involved in integrating a client created using html and javascript with a server backend. It enables client side javascript to directly call class methods in PHP (or any other suitable language). It also enables the server side PHP to directly call client side javascript functions. Using Toxic you can get rid of much of the tedious work in form intensive rich web applications.

DOM-Drag:- DOM-Drag is a lightweight, easy to use, dragging API for modern DHTML browsers.
