Direct Web Remoting

AJAX is all the rage, but who wants to write all that JavaScript code to mess with DOMs, XMLHttpRequest, etc.? With Direct Web Remoting (DWR), you don't have to. Joe Walker shows how this project provides solutions for developing both the server- and client-side pieces of an AJAX web application.

rating comment: The article gives a straight high level overview of Direct Web Remoting. Since it's on, I would have expected a little more technical details, like what's going on behind the scenes. But if you don't have any experience with AJAX or Direct Web Remoting at all, it's a nice introduction.

I dug a little deeper and I must say I am quite impressed of Direct Web Remoting. It really makes it easy to develop AJAX web sites, and I definitely gotta check it out! The most impressive thing is, how easy it is to fill data into HTML components, using the util functions. It's really helpful and saves a lot of time and work!
