Subject [jira] Commented: (CLK-631) Ajax-Select demo with jQuery instead of Prototype
Date Mon, 01 Mar 2010 11:34:05 GMT


Andrei Ionescu commented on CLK-631:

> @Andre: care to elaborate on why ClickClick is too complex? 
The main reason for using Click is that it's among the few frameworks I DO understand how
it works (not really :) - but at least at a degree
to feel comfortable with it) - maybe I'm just not smart enough for the rest :(.

I took several looks over ClickClick and it just doesn't feels like Click - it's not that
simple and predictable, like there's too much abstraction where's no need..., I don't know.

> The basic idea of CC is to use Ajax enabled controls so you don't have to write Ajax
code yourself. 
True, but it looks like too much - it feels too much like Wicket :( - like trying to "over-componentizate"
Looking at Wicket-stuff, it looks like they're trying to make components out if every single
javascript bit and option (for the js frameworks approached there).
Maybe it's a good idea for ExtJS (since it's very component like everything there), but for
the rest more sleek JS frameworks, it's not, or at least it does not feels like that.

A problem too is that the Javascript landscape is changing all the time and too fast for any
Java framework to catch up really with it, so mapping it 1 to 1 in Java just doesn't feel
right :(.

> jQuery seems to have a much more simple and short syntax and there seems to be way more
books for jQuery than for Prototype, so for new users it would be easier to reuse a jQuery
example than the actual Prototype one, and get started with Click.
