The Internet and the Emergency of a New Servicesí Architecture
Fourty and Five years has passed since the creation of the internet first version. In this meanwhile, countless conceptual upgrades took place on the net: from a U.S. Army internal communication tool, to global communication platform, virtual market and service desk. However, while the use concepts evolved fast, the platform itself was forgotten.
Almost fifteen years ago, before the arrival of Windows 95, the first version of the HTML was created. Since then four main structural upgrades were realized. None of them however supplied the constant and growing demand for new kinds of services. In essence, we use the same HTML from ten years ago, complemented with technologies like Java Script, Flash, and recently Ajax. Those technologies are used to compensate, with varying success, the lack of resources in HTML.
As consequence from these lacks left by W3C standards, we can list at least three problems: Poor interface, no standards and general development problems. These questions are connected. First of all, the very platform bounds the development of a rich user experience. Besides that, the lack of built-in advanced features implies the creation of different controls for every website. The result is an internet with no patterns.
Thinking of it, Macromedia adapted Flash to work better with forms and controls, and created a dedicated product, Flex. And Microsoft, with a great opportunity in hand with WPF, presented this year Silverlight, a technology very well supported: The development is integrated with .Net.
