Now of course, that code is completely bogus and won’t work for crap (bonus points if you can see why it would never work); however, it’s really nice because it gives you a way to have some people hammer on the server-side and some people work on the UI side without needing to really jump bank and forth from server to client. Well, Java’s all well and good; however, if you remember from earlier, we have one person that “hates” Java. So putting on the pseudo PM hat, I started looking around for some other ways to get that same sort of functionality in PHP … low and behold, such a thing does exist. It’s called xajax and it seems like it gets me the same sort of thing that DWR does. I’ve not read a ton on it, but I’m going to delve into it a little more and let you know what I think.
