Hello,

A company that I am affiliated with, wanted me to post the following questions, regarding their quest to find an affordable AJAX framework:

Some constraints:

* We don't want to pay too much (in fact we would like it to be free) but are willing to pay if it will save us significant time. Our price point will not allow us to pay a significant per server or annual fee.

* We do not have any graphic designers or experience web designers in house so the framework would have to have a nice looking widget set and an easy way to layout pages (preferably a drag and drop UI builder).

* The UI must update with out a full refresh (AJAX)

* Must have or must be able to build a Sortable Paging Data Grid.

They are using the Isomorphic framework, but they have looked at IceFaces and JSF (using Java Studio Creator) implementations.

Thanks again!

Kindest regards,

Unnsse

Free normally means you need to put a little effort into developing it. I have not worked with a lot of frameworks personally so I just know things from word of mouth.

Well the bare bones that everyone loves is prototype with scriptaculous. I been using them alot lately. ( http://prototype.conio.net/ )

Dojo is a popular ([urlhttp://dojotoolkit.org/[/url]

Yahoo: http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/

Some people use DWR: http://getahead.ltd.uk/dwr

The Google Web Toolkit is based on Java, I been told it is still buggy.

And there is tons more listed here: http://ajaxpatterns.org/Ajax_Frameworks
