General Development Popularized through its use in a number of well-known Web application services like GMail, Google Maps, Flickr, and Odeo.com, AJAX provides Web developers with a way of expanding the value and function of their Web applications by using asynchronous XML messaging. This article shows you how to implement a Web browser-based SOAP Web services client using the Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX) design pattern.

but it shocks me people still push JSP which in the evolution of web programming is still dragging it's knuckles next to ASP or coldfusion, the mixing of content and presentation is the exercise in stupidity

Wait... within the same sentence you're promoting ColdFusion and then saying mixing content and presentation is bad?

ColdFusion is designed around mixing content and presentation. Ever hear a talk from Macromedia people? If someone asks them about adding features that would enhance the actual ColdFusion language, they fight it. They try very hard to avoid adding advanced features. You want integration with other Macromedia products? Sure. But, say, better OO ? Not if they can help it. Remember, they thought it was a good idea to release the first OO version of ColdFusion without the ability to call the superclass when you override a method.

Maybe if I scream louder you'll get it: MIXING CONTENT AND PRESENTATION IS WRONG. Coldfusion is crap no better than jsp/asp and you must be a real cheerleader to read that into it. I said it's un-evolved knuckle dragging throw away code and a waste of time writing it.

Not everybody, need every app to be a masterpieace of web programming. Sometimes, you just need a couple of quick forms, and a hook up to the database.

While you where still busy digging out your Java classes, and figuring out which new classes you were going to have to build to inherit from those classes, I'd have a perfectly functional PHP app up and running.

Who cares how pretty the code is? It works!!!! And for 50% of the apps that are out there, THAT is more important.
