WSO2 releases AJAX browser extension

By : |August 1, 2006 0



BANGALORE: Providing an Application Program Interface for Web programmers to
invoke Web services from the client side, WSO2 released Tungsten XPI recently.
The API of the extension is very similar to the Mozilla AJAX API and introduces
a Java-script class SOAPHttpRequest in place of XMLHttpRequest with extended
capabilities to consume Web services.

This XPI acts as a wrapper to the current AJAX API of Mozilla Firefox. Its
SOAP processing is powered by Apache Axis2/C. Currently however, it works only
on Linux platforms with Mozilla Firefox 1.5 or later versions.

Mozilla Firefox is a open source browser and provides many options for Web
programmers to use today’s technologies and make surfing the Web more simple.
Apache Axis2/C is a Web service engine which is an implementation of the Apache
Axis2 Architecture in C language and is already equipped with many features to
consume and provide Web services. The WSO2 Tungsten XPI is an attempt to use
these two brand technologies to allow Web programmers to script and consume Web
services in the client side with very few steps.
