Here’s An Ajax school project that demonstrates Ajax for order tracking. Developer Matt Farley explains:
Each student was to come up with a comprehensive project to implement everything we’d learned in class. I had some experience with AJAX at work, and we had a similar need for such an application, so I thought why not kill two birds with one stone. I went above and beyond the requirements of the class project and created something that not only helped at work, but stood as a solid example to others of possible AJAX replacements for traditional stand-alone applications.
The system is a data entry app. Google Maps is incorporated to show locations of contacts, a list of Suggestions appears as you type in a name, and there’s an editable data grid backed by data on the server and with an SQL console.
The project homepage contains a project report, Ajax overview and a design description, complete with Entity-Relationship Diagram.
Are any schools actively teaching Ajax? We’d be pleased to hear about any other Ajax student projects.
