Almost a Clean Sweep: About 3 in 4 Use AJAX

Ajax is growing beyond the buzzword stage and is really taking hold in the software development world, and the studies being done are only reinforcing the fact. Take this one, for example – an independant survey from BZ Research showing that the ratio is about three out of four surveyed are already using or will soon be using Ajax and Ajax-related technologies.

In this study, 18.9 percent of respondents said that their companies have already deployed production systems using Asynchronous JavaScript and XML. Another 12.0 percent said that they are developing their first production systems but haven’t deployed yet, and 14.2 percent are developing pilot systems. In addition, 37.7 percent are studying the technology. Only 9.5 percent said that neither they nor their company has plans to use AJAX; 7.6 percent said that they didn’t know.

The article looks at a few of the reaasons the response has been so high, including the search for a more “Windows-like interface” for their applications and its effects on the reduced needs on the backend. They do counter the positivity with a new negative comments about Ajax and a more real, less hype look at what Ajax’s place really is.

I didn’t realize that Java is used that much more than PHP for web development. Wow, 25% more Java over PHP.

I’m moving to RoR right now.
