Jaxcent: Java-only AJAX programming.

Jaxcent provides a Java framework and API for doing AJAX programming.

Jaxcent works with any servlet-capable Java application servers, can be configured to connect directly to IIS or Apache web servers, or can be run stand-alone using the included web-server.

Jaxcent programmers do not need to work in JavaScript: Jaxcent only requires the addition of a single JavaScript include statement to HTML content. Yet in Jaxcent programming JavaScript can be taken full advantage of, if desired.

Jaxcent provides features to simplify writing Web applications in Java. It provides access to the session and application context for using various server-side programming metaphors. Jaxcent can make form-data saving and retrieving to/from the session entirely automatic.

Jaxcent can be used for adding dynamic AJAX features to existing web applications. The existing applications can continue to work as usual, and individual pages can be Jaxcent-enabled one at a time, as needed.

Jaxcent is an open AJAX framework. Instead of attempting to provide all possible present and future rich-client interfaces within a single package, Jaxcent simply makes it easy to integrate third party interfaces. (Some examples of such third party integrations may be seen at the sample pages.) The core Jaxcent itself, concentrates on AJAX and on providing an elegant programming model, rather than on various rich-client interfaces.

Unlike earlier Java-AJAX models, in Jaxcent programming the full server environment is directly available for normal programmatic access, making AJAX programming very straightforward.
