James Ward of Adobe has created a Flex application that is able to run benchmarks on various RIA technologies called Census.
The benchmark renders a large data table using:
- Ajax: HTML, SOAP, XML, JSON
- Dojo: JSON to Dojo filtering table
- Flex: SOAP to AS and E4X, XML to AS and E4X, AMF3, Paged
The benchmark results will tell you the time taken for server execution, transfer, parsing, and rendering.
The output itself is a large table that you can play with to feel the speed of filtering on the client. For the HTML versions James uses an iframe that he hides to a 1×1 version to the top right.
Run some tests on your own browser and play with the results. To show you that it is cool, it is black. All of the cool interfaces are black these days.
