Exploring Ajax Platforms for Eclipse: RAP & ATF (Reprise)

This month's presentation will be a reprise of Barry Burd's presentation from October 2007. "This presentation differs from the one I gave in October because, this time, I'm prepared."

Eclipse has two AJAX platforms:
  • ATF (AJAX Toolkit Framework)
  • RAP (Rich AJAX Platform)
ATF helps you to create AJAX-enabled Web pages by leveraging common third-party AJAX APIs, like Dojo, Prototype, and Scriptaculus. ATF includes code assist, debugging, monitoring, and other useful tools.

RAP is an independent AJAX API. Using RAP, you write SWT (Standard Widget Toolkit) code in Java. RAP translates the code into JavaScript using the Qooxdoo framework.

In this presentation, Barry will demonstrate the creation of rich, interactive web pages using the RAP and ATF platforms.

Meetings are held every second Tuesday of the month at the Scotch Plains Rescue Squad second floor meeting hall starting promptly at 7:30pm. Meetings are open to the public, and visitors are encouraged to join ACGNJ.
