we would share with you what some of the world's leading rich Internet application pioneers are thinking

Kurt Cagle 12/26/07 02:43:45 AM EST

There's a growing impedance mismatch between the large scale providers of content and the consumers of that content as we build multiple messaging architectures. How realistically do we resolve this mismatch in such a way that we are able to preserve both flexibility (SOAP), simplicity (Atom) and brevity (JSON), and can we do so without sparking a religious war?

Crolly Darvo 12/18/07 05:06:41 AM EST

Will the browsers development, unification and standardization give us more possibilities and freedom to sophisticate or simplify our interfaces & APIs?

Brett Green 12/13/07 01:24:02 PM EST

Do you believe a shift back towards rich desktop apps, which are internet-enabled, will lead away from the need for AJAX-enabled web applications?

Gabriel Kent 12/12/07 10:57:40 AM EST

If you imagine the a URI is a handle to a given resource -- is the AJAX community pushing to retain the isomorphic relationship between the URI and a given state of a web application as it changes through AJAX interaction?

Micha? S?aby 12/12/07 04:55:16 AM EST

Are off-line applications for web the right direction? Is Google Gears relevant when more and more devices has 24/7 Internet access?
Will web applications of the future be complex on client and lightweight on server side or rather the opposite? This is essential issue to me, as Tigermouse framework I develop favors the later approach.

Marcio 12/11/07 04:20:08 PM EST

Other questions like: [1] ambiguity in AJAX toolkits, can I match them? how an aspect in Toolkit A can influence toolkit B? The namespaced Web apps becomes now important. It's the same that happened in Browser space, they were different, then become a bit shared, the AJAX toolkits work also may reach a convergence state as we have offline/online caching infra-structure with namespaced events - sandboxed apps in the same page but running each in a given scope.

I think the next stage promises good things for us and the current stage is a mess with good value under it. The exploration of the mashup stack and mashup infra for interoperability is an area to massage.

WishList 12/09/07 02:22:28 AM EST

If only AJAX could somehow bring us a spam-free internet, now THAT would be a rich future!

AJAX vs CF 11/15/07 08:28:09 AM EST

While Ajax represents the future, it looks like in Georgia they still have developers working in ColdFusion from Adobe - how come? Here's the link: http://www.dot.state.ga.us/

IMHO 11/09/07 08:59:40 AM EST

Development managers need to ask themselves at least these two questions before adopting AJAX on a project. First, will you make up for the time invested in adopting a new technology through increased development speed? And second, will AJAX allow you to offer a more useful application to your users?

Ahmed ALEM 11/07/07 06:32:56 AM EST

The answer is definitely: Java + XML + XSLT + a new ML, instead of: JavaScript + XML + HTML. But is there any project which take into account all these ideas? Are there any band of developers who are interested in re-inventing a better wheel?

Answer 11/07/07 06:31:07 AM EST

The next stage of AJAX is Comet.

mAX kIESELR 11/06/07 10:48:05 AM EST

It was inevitable that someone would use web 2.0 social aspects together with an AJAX interaction layer to create a next generation weblog. As usual it took a seventeen year old to do it. Logahead is everything I've been looking for recently in blogging software. It's PHP, MySQL, AJAX, and has several social features.
