Tapestry Q - AJAX

Ranch Hand

AJAX enabled web applications are all the rage. Frameworks like Echo2 provide developers with a Swing-like API and (like an IDE) provide for rapid development and deployment of rich, dynamic web applications -- mileage varies per developer. The web pages are flashy and the framework gives the illusion of significant progress.

Is Tapestry AJAX like or does it support a different realm?
Will it support AJAX enabled web applications?

Hi Fred,

Tapestry 5 does support Ajax, and its support isn't trivial. In many cases you can get some pretty cool Ajax functionality without seeing a single line of JavaScript - it is all packaged into the framework and its components. But if you wish so, you can express your creativity and either add Ajax behavior to your components using mixins, or seriously involve yourself into playing with JavaScript toolkits that are built into Tapestry.

Have a look at what Tapestry website says about Ajax support.
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
