Having developed with AJAX in Microsofts Visual Studio IDE, I can vouched that it is a superior development tool. I enjoyed using it and the effects on the web page were impressive. it saves the number of requests to the server and it speeds up the client experience. It was very easy to use in the Microsoft enviornmet and there is a ton of literature on the web about manipulating it to how you want for your project. it has a lot of functionality “out of the box”. Obviously, it was intended for use with Internet explorer, but I have found that with the development of multiple frameworks it is becoming more platform independent.
I can see where the back end programming is an issue, because I was in Visual Studio I used ASP.net for my database connectivity and for a lot of the HTML objects on the site. having to jump back and forth was not too bad for my situation, given that Visual Studio has a “user friendly” developing method, but I could see the potential problem for someone else using a different method of development. I see the concerns in this article and feel as if they are a bit exaggerated. I liked my experience with the toolkit and will continue to use it.
