Web 2.0 is a broad umbrella concept covering a great number of areas ranging from web site design and software architecture to new business models. It combines a wide range of technological and social trends which form the new Internet and a new class of web applications. Technologies themselves are not what Web 2.0 is about. Revolutionary new ideas are at the bottom of Web 2.0. It embraces quite a number of social phenomena like social networking, user-generated content and collective intelligence. And technologies which become popular in the Web 2.0 era are merely the means to make it easy for everyone to participate, share and create. Therefore blogs, social bookmarking and networking sites are some of the most popular online destinations nowadays.

Since 2004, when the term “Web 2.0” was used for the first time, it has transformed from an IT buzzword into a mainstream trend which affects both individuals and enterprises. Developing software, as well as doing business, in the Web 2.0 era demands from us to adjust to the realities of the new Web.

AJAX Development and Outsourcing,

AJAX Application Solutions at Brio Factors

AJAX stands for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML. Although AJAX has been available for the last 8 years, its utility was not realized until recently – Brio Factors being one of the forerunners in realizing the ability of AJAX and put it to proper use in web applications.

AJAX offers a versatile platform for developing rich web applications that are highly interactive and behave just like desktop applications adding up to the usability and availability of web applications that serve enterprise business services. At Brio Factors, applications using AJAX harness this capability and get the most out of it.

The term AJAX was invented by Jesse James Garrett that described a collection of technologies that allows a rich user experience to web users.

AJAX combines the following technologies

* XML and XSLT for data exchange
* HTML or XHTML as mark up language
* CSS for creating custom styles
* Document Object Model (DOM)
* Client-end scripting language like JavaScript
* XMLHttpRequest object for asynchronous data exchange with the web server

From programming perspective AJAX enables a new way of combining client side programming in JavaScript with server side processing that deliver XML chunks to web pages. This allows web pages to be updated with new data without any need to reload the entire data.
