Matt Raible has posted on the analysis the he has done for a client on choosing an Ajax framework. This is the age old question “which Ajax framework should I use?” It is agonizing. It is hard. It isn’t pretty. We created a dartboard:
Matts take compares Dojo, Ext JS, GWT, and YUI using various criteria that you can see here (including his ratings):
What you quickly see is that it is fairly hard to choose between the popular frameworks (and this is a specific subset that was narrowed down, hence no jQuery, Prototype, Mootools, etc).
I am interested in seeing what other criteria people use to choose.
