Subject Re: XAP (Extensible Ajax Platform) Proposal
Date Fri, 12 May 2006 16:33:29 GMT

My name is Vinod and I am from an IT service firm called “inkriti”. I 
read the proposal and technical background carefully and look forward to 
getting involved.

My company Inkriti specializes in web 2.0 solutions for the retail 
industry. Over the last 2-3 years, we delivered some great applications 
for online retail companies like Lillian Vernon, Bose, Chadwicks, 
Target, Jessica London, Lane Bryant etc. There are tremendous demands 
for “richer” web offerings. Areas like online shopping cart, online 
checkout and online search etc can be significantly enhanced. During 
these projects, I worked on several technology platforms including AJAX, 
Flex, Nexaweb and Laszlo. Across the board, we have found that the 
momentum is indisputably towards AJAX. And it is also true that a lot of 
the current AJAX frameworks need significant enhancements so that 
enterprise class applications can be deployed on them...One of the 
things that I liked about Flex, Nexaweb, etc. is their declarative 
approach to UI programming that is well thought of and robust – in 
contrast, Ajax requires writing lots of Javascript. I have been hoping 
for a declarative way of doing Ajax – it would be really sweet if it is 
open source. This project proposal seems to fill in the gap well.
