Hello all,

I’m a member of the PHP meetup group.  I’m also a member of the Harford County IT Network (HITN) which is a group affiliated with the Harford County Community College.  That group has meetings and presentations once a month on a variety of different IT topics.  This coming month they’ve got something that is very interesting to me and I thought might also be interesting to some folks on the PHP group list as well. 


The HITN is not a free group but they do invite non-members to attend 1 meeting for free as a “guest” and I though some of you might want to take that opportunity to check out this presentation and the HITN group as well.  I’m pasting the details of the presentation below and if anyone is interested they can visit the HITN website at or send me an email and I’ll try to coordinate getting you in touch with the people that run the group.

A Comparison of Approaches for Building Rich Internet Applications with Ajax Higher Education and Conference Center, Room 130

8:00 - 9:30am

PLEASE NOTE! RSVP IS REQUIRED! Please don’t just show up!  They serve a great breakfast and they need an accurate head count!



"Ajax" refers to the set of techniques that use JavaScript to asynchronously update individual portions of Web pages, and is now widely used in diverse types of Web applications. However, Ajax development is difficult, and there are several fundamentally different strategies to building Ajaxified Web applications. This talk will survey the three most important of these approaches:


* Using an Ajax-enabled JavaScript library such as jQuery, Prototype, Scriptaculous, Dojo, or Ext/JS

* Using a Web framework such as JSF 2.0 or Struts 2 that has integrated Ajax support.

* Using the Google Web Toolkit (GWT) to build "pure Java" Ajax applications.


The talk will compare and contrast these three approaches, discussing the types of applications that fit best for each option.



Marty Hall is the author of six popular Java EE books, including Core Servlets and JavaServer Pages, the all-time worldwide bestselling servlet and JSP book.

Marty is president of, a training and consulting company focusing on server-side Java technology and Rich Internet Apps with Ajax. In addition to long Java development and consulting experience, Marty has an extensive background in teaching and training, having given training courses on J2EE and Ajax topics in Japan, Canada, Australia, the Philippines, Mexico, Puerto Rico, India, and dozens of US venues. Marty is also adjunct faculty in the Johns Hopkins University part-time graduate program in Computer Science, where he directs the Java and Web-related concentration areas.
