by as6o (#18521281) Attached to: GWT Java AJAX Programming
Programming down to the metal is fine and all, but it often unnecessarily complicates the application, forces developers to write a lot of very tedious code repeatedly, and prevents developers from concentrating on the business functionality of the application. I think AJAX is AJAX and that developers should use the technologies and patterns that they are most familiar with in order to be the most productive. Besides, they almost all support AJAX to some degree and usually abstract away all of the rote and boring JavaScript code so you usually don't need to bother with it and can spend your time concentrating on the problem at hand.
