Another year and another chance to try some new things. In the last few years I have been toying around with AJAX and even built a few small scale applications using this. I tried a few different toolkits, some commercial and some opensource, before settling on Sajax. It is not as feature laden as others (Dojo and Backbase) but for my needs it gets the job done.

However, AJAX was last years new development buzz for me to try. This year it will be XForms. Why? Well…why not? I want to learn more about it and how it is used. I am finding that quite a challenge. I have googled all sorts of blogs and read the W3Schools tutorials and I am fear I am a long winding road to a distant land. Plus, the distractions of actually doing work are slowing me down even though it is exactly this work for which I wish to use XForms.
