R.I.C.S

R.I.C.S stands for Rich Interface Component – Spreadsheet. Not really something very new, people HAVE tried this in the past and I’m sure there are AJAX implementations for the same. The idea of this R&D project is to develop an entirely server independent component. More information about the project can be found at http://www.primacognos.com/wiki. the application’s prototype itself can be seen at http://203.129.220.110/ajax/test2012.html. For now the server implementation has only been done in PHP, the .NET script should be ready today.

My major concern, as of right now is implementing a request queue. For an application like this where every “return” keypress sends data to the server and then relays the response back to the client it is important to keep a track of requests so that we don’t end up with a lot of unsychronized data. I am still looking around for clues on how to do this, any help will be gladly appreciated.

I wish Harry reads this …

    Alexei … sorry about that error … what I really meant was server platform independent. I have been seeing implementations that are server platform dependent and if you come to think of it, thats not what AJAX is supposed to be. It is supposed to be a client-side bundle of technologies, why bind it to any platform at the back ?

    Oh! and was that “wow” for the application under development or just a general exclamation ?

    Wow.. I think there are quite a few projects like this, but after looking at your wiki, I still don’t quite get how this will be server-independant. Can you elaborate on this?
