ICEfaces Shown in Action on Mobile Devices at AJAXWorld 2007 West

Taxi Dispatch system demo'ed at Day Two of the AJAXWorld Conference & Expo

'The server-centric nature of the ICEfaces technology provides inherent advantages in the mobile space,' ICEfaces CTO Steve Maryka told the audience today at AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2007 West in Santa Clara, CA, before going on to demo the advantages of 'AJAX push' in action in a taxi dispatch system running on an iPhone.

Maryka gave a brief overview of the ICEfaces technology and how it is applicable to resource-constrained mobile devices. The live demo of a mobile ICEfaces application could be run on both the Safari and Opera mobile browsers. 

He also spoke about the emerging best practices for mobile AJAX application design, and gave a a glimpse of the ICEfaces roadmap for mobile AJAX.

ICEfaces is a pure server-centric model, Maryka explained, everything is done on the server using a technique called direct-toDOM rendering. "There is only 40k of JavaScript, making it well suited to resource-constrained devices."

"AJAX push" reduces hands-on user interaction, so users don't experience latency, he added.
