RE: Ajax Framework Comparison

This is a really interesting post that I need to read more into.

[Matt Harrison](http://panela.blog-city.com/ajax_explosion.htm) was talking about making choices between various Ajax toolkits, frameworks, or libraries.

He linked over to [the OSA foundation](http://wiki.osafoundation.org/) and their [Survey of AJAX/JavaScript Libraries](http://wiki.osafoundation.org/bin/view/Projects/AjaxLibraries).

Their survey discusses:

  • [Dojo](http://dojotoolkit.org/)
  • [DWR](http://www.getahead.ltd.uk/dwr/)
  • [JSON-RPC-JAVA](http://oss.metaparadigm.com/jsonrpc/index.html)
  • [MochiKit](http://mochikit.com/)
  • [Prototype](http://prototype.conio.net/)
  • [Rico](http://openrico.org/)
  • [SAJAX](http://www.modernmethod.com/sajax/)
  • [Scriptaculous](http://script.aculo.us/)
  • [Xajax](http://xajax.sourceforge.net/)
  • [Sack](http://twilightuniverse.com/projects/sack/)
  • The world of Ajax libs is an interesting one, as they cover various functionality.

    We blogged about the Ajax layers in the past:

    NOTE: [Michael Mahemoff also collected framework information](http://www.ajaxpatterns.org/AJAXFrameworks)

    I have been doing a lot of backend work with XMLHttpRequest for my Ajax Tagger Version 2, and I am wondering if I should have bothered. I will look into some of these solutions and see what each offers.
