I want to know the performance of using AJAX compared with tailor-made codes. How much memory resources is required solely for AJAX?

Is there any tests carried out that measure the performance or is there any benchmarking?

What do you mean by this: "AJAX compared with tailor-made codes"

Sorry, I think I cannot express the question clearly.

"AJAX compared with tailor-made codes" means comparing with some general DHTML/Javascript written specifically for a web page, how is AJAX's performance?

Thanks.

Ajax is just JavaScript so you are not talking about anything different with DHTML. DHTML s JavaScript with CSS to manipulate the page. You end up using 'DHTML' with Ajax.

Performance wise with Ajax is based on: Type of conection user is on (T1,dialup,DSL,etc), where they are located compared to the server, type of caching involved (client and server), the business logic on the server (how long is it going to chug to get the data out), and how well the client side code is implemented.

An Ajax script may look like lightening fast testing, but the developer needs to realize that there will be traffic on the net and not everyone has a direct connection to the server.
