IBM Tackles Ajax and Web Services

IBM’s developerWorks on Ajax and Scripting Web Services with E4X, Part 1:

Get an introduction to ECMAScript for XML (E4X), a simple extension to JavaScript that makes XML scripting very simple. In this paper, the authors demonstrate a Web programming model called Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX) and show you how some new XML extensions to JavaScript can make it very simple.

Haven’t taken too deep a look at this yet. Seems like there are millions of homegrown Ajax++ libraries popping up all over the place.

Hopefully a clear winner will emerge soon, so you don’t have to learn a new custom Ajax scripting meta-platform whenever you switch development houses. (*cough* unlikely) :)
