Oracle Contributes Ajax Tech to Open Source Community

As anticipated, Oracle announced yesterday that they will release some Ajax user interface technology into the open source community.

“Oracle said it would donate a set of Ajax-enabled user-interface components in the next few months. The Redwood Shores, Calif., database company said developers would be able to assemble the reusable components on a page and connect them to an application data source. The company has integrated Ajax with JavaServer Faces technology to build highly interactive user interfaces that run 100 percent within a browser with no downloads, officials said.” (TechWeb)

This is not a big announcement, but it does support Oracle’s recent focus on open source. From my perspective, open sourcing existing technology is a better open source strategy for Oracle than the acquisition strategy that it has been rumored to have been pursuing.
