"A Java Front-End To CGI/Perl "

[ #32106 ]

Found this JavaCGI Bridge Presentation which based on a cursory read looks like an alternative to AJAX. The gist is this:

JavaCGIBridge Solution

        CGI/Perl advantages

                * CGI/Perl can provide database connectivity more easily
                * Application related "business-rules" are centrally maintained and executed in CGI/Perl scripts
                * Browsers that don't support Java can still use the application
                * Leverage existing "legacy" CGI/Perl code
                * Many Internet Service Providers only allow CGI/Perl access (no daemons)

        Java advantages

                * Java applet becomes a truly thin client
                    - only requires GUI code and GUI logic
                    - JavaCGIBridge class adds ~5k overhead
                    - No need to learn the entire Java class library.
                    - You can get by with AWT (Forms) and some utility classes
                * Java applet can maintain state between all CGI script calls
                * Java applet can cache retrieved data
                    - eliminates the need to constantly get redundant data from the server

Check the date of the presentation: 1997 :) !!
