Why not adopting ready to use frameworks?

Hi.
Why you decided to develope a framework for building Ajax applications instead of adopting powerfull frameworks such as jQuery, GWT, Prototype .. ?
Thanks.

Is there a context for this question? Who is it addressed to? The visiting authors?

To the authors...
According to the book's description page at Amazon, the book will create a framework for building Ajax applications.

This book is for people who really want to understand the 'why' and 'how' of Ajax.. as all Enterprise developers should. Frameworks are great timesavers, but you should be prepared to write your own extensions and fix bugs as needed. To do this effectively, you will want to have a deep knowledge of how to work within a framework, not just how to use the framework's API.

The framework we develop in the book is very lightweight and mainly for demonstrative purposes - so you can learn how these frameworks tend to be built.

The book isn't all about a framework though. It discusses a lot of peripheral topics like security, usability, and design.. which applies whether you use a framework or not.

Thanks for the great question!
 
What's that smell? I think this tiny ad may have stepped in something.
