Microsoft has passed the OpenAjax Alliance's suite of interoperability tests to prove that its software can interoperate with other parts of the OpenAjax ecosystem.
Brad Abrams, a project manager for Microsoft's ASP.Net Atlas, wrote in his blog Sept. 23 that Microsoft passed the OpenAjax InteropFest test. Bertand Le Roy, a Microsoft engineer who prepared the Microsoft entry for the OpenAjax test, also blogged about the entry and the testing process itself.
According to the OpenAjax InteropFest 1.0 page on the OpenAjax site, Microsoft passed the test Sept. 20. Offerings from Software AG, the Dojo Foundation, Nexaweb and the Apache Software Foundation also passed on the same day.
Microsoft joined the OpenAjax Alliance in March after being courted for several months.
The OpenAjax Alliance is an organization of leading vendors, open-source projects and companies using AJAX that are dedicated to the successful adoption of open and interoperable AJAX-based Web technologies, the organization said.
The organization's key objective is to accelerate customer success with AJAX by promoting a customer's ability to mix and match solutions from AJAX technology providers and by helping to drive the future of the AJAX ecosystem, OpenAjax officials said.Microsoft, Ajax, OpenAjax, Interoperability
