Subject Re: OT: Best AJAX framework
Date Thu, 10 Nov 2005 18:31:16 GMT
I'm not sure there are any at this point.  I'm sure some have been
proposed by someone somewhere, but I'm not aware of them.

You might want to have a look at my AjaxTags if your finding what your
doing now to be a bit of a pain... http://javawebparts.sourceforge.net...
go to the javadocs and find the ajaxtags package.  The package docs should
give you a pretty good idea what they offer.  They may or may not suite
your needs, but if they do I think they will make your life quite a bit
easier.

Remember too that just because XML is in the name, it IS NOT a requirement
or AJAX.  I'm not sure people realize this sometimes :)  You can actually
save a lot of time and effort (not to mention improve performance) by not
bothering with XML.  I'm NOT saying that's the right answer in every case,
but it's a question worth asking yourself.
