This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm wondering if there are any client side performance issues with AJAX due to the client side scripting.
What I'm getting at here is the use of AJAX in a terminal services environment, if all of the client side scripting is taking place on a terminal server, would that not eventually bog down the terminal server?
I had to double check your question because initially in my response I ran on about this how if performance were an issue we would not be talking about Java. But then I reread your question and saw what you were really asking.
If you plan on deploying Ajax applications on a terminal server I would do it under very controlled circumstances! Things could get very quickly out of control, especially if you let the operators "surf".
