What is Web 2.0?

Wikipedia defines Web 2.0 as "refers to what is perceived as a second generation of web development and web design. It is characterized as facilitating communication, information sharing, interoperability, user-centered design and collaboration on the World Wide Web. It has led to the development and evolution of web-based communities, hosted services, and web applications. Examples include social-networking sites, video-sharing sites, wikis, blogs, mashups and folksonomies."

"Characteristics, such as openness, freedom and collective intelligence by way of user participation, can also be viewed as essential attributes of Web 2.0".

Basically, Web 2.0 sites let their users add data to the site. Most of these sites provide open access to all data, e.g. wikis are used to create highly linked documentation by users. Everyone sees all of the information input into a wiki.

Building Web 2.0 Websites

COR Site Builder and Jetfire workflows are used to create Build Web 2.0 Pages. Start with a website with one page and you can create a highly customized website. Figure 1 shows a simple architecture for building Web 2.0 sites using COR and Jetfire libraries.
