Now that it looks like a monitoring system will be running on the browser, what are the best practices for robust ECMA scripting? How do you implement "high cohesion" and "low coupling"? Can we expect some type of accepted frame work in the ECMA script?
I think is was a combination of things. Venkman didn't exist yet. I only had one license for MS Visual Studio, which I used as the debugger. I became frustrated with the differences between the implementation by the various vendors.
Those objects I did develop, I used over and over again, especially a Calendar Control (Widget or what have you ...) that could be instantiated. Also much of my time was spent developing Java web based apps so I was more a middle and DB tier guy at the time.
