Sample text

For example, it will be hard to read your next great novel written in Enormicorp PerfectWord if you don’t have Enormicorp PerfectWord. One effect of the isolation of both the user and the application is that designers and developers of traditional (RCP) applications never considered it desirable to enable the easy sharing of content created by a specific proprietary tool, except through arrangements like OLE or OpenDoc, which open up data sharing on the operating system or on proprietary tools made by the same vendor.

Platform-independent development Writing to a standard that is above the platform level means that you can develop applications without having to worry about which operating systems, browsers, and so on they will run on (with caveats). 0 The ability to make an asynchronous call to a URL and have the data return handled by code within the browser is key to creating the RIA experience for the user. Without AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML), browser-resident RIAs would not be feasible for the reasons discussed previously.

Those you will always prefer to delegate to a capable framework. Python helps create the frameworks that make that possible. Comparing the Frameworks No parent ever wants to compare their children by saying that Caitlin is better than Sean (they’re both better, just in different ways) and in this case the same is true. The Django and TurboGears frameworks are each the best at certain things. Both the Django and TurboGears frameworks implement a strict MVC design center and depend on AJAX within the browser to invoke a server-side controller.
