Server TF

At October 2006 face-to-face meeting, we decided to start a task force to investigate common approaches for integrating Ajax components into server frameworks. Several companies that expressed interest in this topic. These companies were primarily interested in Java servers, particular JSF, but given the cross-platform nature of the Alliance (cross-platform includes server platforms), this task force will likely pursue approaches that accommodate multiple server technologies.

This task force will research existing approaches used within the industry, drill down into the use cases and requirements that OpenAjax Alliance might address and then recommend a course of action (if any) for the Alliance. Depending on the recommendations, this task force might: (a) develop a Proposal for a new Working Group or (b) propose new work items for an existing Working Group, which would lead to an Proposal for expanded work within an existing Working Group. In either of these cases, the Task Force would follow the procedures defined by the Alliance's Development Process.
