Changing Nature of Web 2.0

Filed under: Technology,Web 2.0 Apps — janats @ 3:13 pm

In the past if you cannot access the Internet then you cannot use your Web 2.0 applications. This model is rapidly changing.  New pogramming models are emerging that alllow Web 2.0 to be offline /online dependant on what is needed.

The first of these is Adobe Apollo, which is a cross-platfrom technology that combined Flash, HTML, PDF and JavaScript into one universal application programming model / paradigm.  What is unique is that id doesn’t care if if it runs on its own or embedded in a webpage, the API calls remains the same.

A competing project using the same core concept is Dekoh, except this is done with Java rather than the Adobe combination of technologies.  More libraries are due to be released for web languages such as PHP and you can find some demo apps from the site.

More cutting edge languages are also not left out. Slingshot is geared towards Ruby on Rails and this also features the ability to create an offline version of all your data and run it straight from the original code.

Rather than this being a YAPP (Yet another Programming Paradigm….) this truly has the ability to change the nature of how and where software is used, and how it is built.

At Jana we’ve already started using Apollo and our early feedback is that this really does deliver compelling results. Watch this space, this is going to be big !
