To authors:
As more development projects are using Ajax, what are some of the best practices should be followed and does the book cover this subject. Is a questionaire application a good Ajax candidate? Also, what Ajax frameworks are covered in your book?

Any application is a good Ajax candidate.

More seriously, "it all depends". I'm not too familiar with questionnaire applications. What would you like to do with them that would require Ajax techniques?

Also, what Ajax frameworks are covered in your book?

An application that ask a series of questions and based on your input determines your profile and fills out the appropriate forms to be viewed. The developer didn't want the web page to be refreshed each time a question is answered. Also, I was told by another developer that we should keep Ajax implementation simple such as lookups to prefilled fields.

What sort of activity needs to take place each time a question is answered?

Also, I was told by another developer ...

Oh great! Dueling developers.
