Exploring Ajax Frameworks for Eclipse: RAP & ATF

Both help you to create AJAX-enabled Web pages by leveraging common third-party AJAX APIs, like Dojo, Prototype and Scriptaculus. In this presentation, Barry will demonstrate the creation of rich, interactive Web pages using the RAP and ATF frameworks. He will compare the two frameworks and discuss their applicability to several AJAX APIs.

At this month�s meeting, Barry will show you a first draft of the above presentation. The final presentation can be seen at EclipseWorld in November.
