The update of Ajax continues with more and more companies offering tool and support. Last week it was IBM’s turn to roll out new enhancements to the Eclipse Foundations Ajax Technology Framework (ATF) and also unveil a new on-line resource centre. Support coming form all the large corporations definitely help the developers, but, the tools are still at present not on par with the Development environments on offer to other paradigms. Also, the constant new releases of alternatives from varied companies means that the developer is currently forced to look to the latest and greatest tool in an attempt to gain further productivity. I would imagine that this will calm when we get the position of a few major players like in the Java IDE market, this perhaps is not that far off, taking into account the current speed of tool release and adoption.
