I would like to know why there's so much hype about AJAX.Its still javascript & XML processing isnt it?If i disable javascript (u never know what the user may or may not do to his browser) then AJAX apps will bomb.I would rather stick with some architecture say as Struts for instance where all proceesing is done on the server side.

all of the business logic should remain on the server in my opinion, the clientside should be focused on the presentation of the data that is returned. Plus we are not talking about XML being returned, we can return strings, html tags, javascript statements, and so much more. You can do things wih Ajax that is not possible with the traditional postback method. It is making the web act like a client application.
