The industry group looks to improve mashup security and open up APIs for mobile devices with an update to its publish/subscribe platform.
The OpenAjax Alliance on Monday updated its publish/subscribe platform, and unveiled Mobile Ajax for mobile devices at the AjaxWorld conference in New York.
Mobile Ajax, its other initiative, is intended to broaden use of Ajax on mobile phones. Many Ajax-powered mobile applications require integration with the phone's operating system for physical location or for one-touch dialing, for example. To address the OS integration requirement, the Mobile Ajax committee will establish use cases, requirements, and characterize the requirements of the security effort, with likely follow-on efforts to pursue industry standards and/or open source, the alliance explained.
"By unifying the industry around a common approach, and defining the security requirements, OpenAjax Alliance's efforts will help propel the next-generation of mobile applications," said Brad Sipes, CTO and vice president of engineering for Ikivo, and a co-chair of the Mobile Task Force at OpenAjax Alliance.
Vodafone is also working with the task force to develop new Web-based services and applications, the carrier said.
