Google Maps! AJAX-Style Web Development Using ASP.NET

Taking asynchronous Web forms to the next level

The most recent announcement from Microsoft about the Atlas Project promises to address some of these difficulties. It is an attempt to greatly simplify AJAX-style development by providing, over time, a Javascript framework that includes (note - the following is based on a preliminary announcement from Microsoft and is subject to change): UI Toolkit - commonly used controls with support for features such as drag and drop and databinding; SOAP stack for invoking Web services; browser compatibility layer that hides the differences between browser types; and client building blocks such as local cache. Further, the ASP.NET team plans to make some of the building blocks for ASP.NET such as profiles, membership, etc. available as Web service endpoints, to make them accessible from Javascript directly. For example, personalization information can be easily accessible on the client. Finally, the Atlas project plans to extend the Javascript syntax to include interfaces, lifetime management, and multicast events.

The next few months promise to be very exciting for those interested in building AJAX-style Web applications. I hope this article has peaked your interest in AJAX enough for you to consider it for the next Web application you build.
