An AJAXWorld Look at The Rise and Rise of Enterprise AJAX and RIAs

SYS-CON Media's Diary of AJAX

It has come a long, long way since February 2005 when Jesse James Garrett coined the now universally used term for it: the rise and rise of 'AJAX' has been meticulously reflected in the pages of SYS-CON Media's magazines and web sites. We take an end-of-year look at its first 22 months.

February 2005

Garrett, President and a founder of Adaptive Path, writes his seminal essay offering a new approach to Web applications, goes away on vacation, and comes back a week later to a mountain of e-mail from around the world asking for more details about this new way of thinking about the architecture of web applications using certain technologies like CSS, DOM, and XMLHttpRequest.
