Web 2.0

After FOSS, the next thing to happen out there in banglore. With orkut and facebook leading the way for the not so technologically tuned end user, web2.0 resembles the next generation of web thats almost here. We already have had more than enough previews of it with youtube, flickr etc leading in the multimedia context and the aforementioned social networking websites, the various technologies involved in there are a great bunch of exciting stuff.The basic characteristics of web2.0 can be interactivity, where you dont just read the textual context or just see and enjoy the flashy animation but rather interact with it. One way of looking at it is the general persons’ interaction with the web server offering these content, wherein the user doesnt only view or download the content but can also upload and share anything and everything that he likes with the rest of the world.

Microsoft’s silverlight is another such tool which is supposed to be giving a competition to the already well established Adobe Flash.

Microsoft Silverlight is a cross-browser, cross-platform plug-in for delivering the next generation of Microsoft .NET–based media experiences and rich interactive applications for the Web.

Another new player in the field is JavaFX Script, released by Sun Microsystems. Its a scripting language that targets the Rich Internet Application domain (competing with Adobe Flex and Microsoft Silverlight), specializing in rapid development of visually rich applications for the desktop and mobile markets. JavaFX Script works with integrated development environments like Netbeans and Eclipse. JavaFX is released under the GNU General Public License, via the Sun sponsored OpenJFX project
