Ajax Frameworks Types

Client Side vs. Server Side Frameworks
There are two types of Ajax based frameworks used in the web programming nowadays: Serverside Framework and Client-side Framework. Server-side framework is installed inside the server while Client-side framework entertains the user’s browser to access the web. Similarly, the code executed on the Web server is considered as Server-side code while if executed on the user’s browser is known as Client-side Framework.

Internet is an extremely wide area and because of this both the server-side and client –side programmers may not be in the contact and performs their work separately. Both the server-side and client-side functions differently and the code used in the frameworks also varies. The code of both the frameworks has its own pros and cons that suite to different sorts of developers.

Now the question arises, what is the Server-side framework and what is Client-side? In this article, you will get the answer of both these queries. You will also learn about what are the advantages and disadvantages of both these frameworks.

Server Side Framework
The framework that is installed inside the server is known as Server-side framework. The coding of server-side framework is actually not created in JavaScript but it is the same language that API provided for server-side framework. So, it is not mandatory for the developers to be skilled in JavaScript for server-side framework programming. Nearby all the frameworks in server-side accepts the coding of developers and automatically translates it into Ajax when user accesses the website.

Server-side framework can also be used for installing the specific functions from the library to translate and accessed effectively. The server-side framework exactly provides the desired functions and the library needed for developer to render the specific buttons and information in Ajax based website. The developers have to only customize the code during creating the program. Moreover, the server-side framework responds better because it handles a large number of user communications without intervention of server.

Google Web Toolkit (GWT) might be an excellent example of server-side framework that is used as a normal Java Swing kind of programming on the server side in web pages using the GWT API. The other server side frameworks are: Yahoo, Toolkit and DWR.

Server-side framework is basically used for server server-side programming that covers password protection, browser customization, form processing and building and displaying pages created from database.

Pros and Cons of Server Side Frameworks
There is no need for the developers to learn the extra language as server-side coding can be written in the existing language in which the server-side programmer is efficient.

Client Side Framework
As opposing the server-side, Client-side framework is accessed and executes within the user’s browsers. For creating Ajax based client-side framework, developers must be efficient enough in
