This paper explains that the intent of this research study is to evaluate AJAX application performance for distributed order management relying on SQL-based queries as the basis of the transaction engine and to appraise XMLHTTPObject caching and its implications on transaction latency. Next, the author relates the project phases, which are to define, develop and install an XML network, to create a series of small AJAX-based applications based on the Ruby on Rails programming constructs and then to test the AJAX performance and analysis the XML performance. The paper lists the deliverables, project plan and timing and sets the evaluation criteria.

From the Paper:

"Where Web 1.0 applications were created in HTML and often treated the page as the programming construct, AJAX isolates specific attributes and components on a page, only refreshing or updating the changed elements. The use of caching has become pervasive in AJAX-based applications as this approach to programming concentrates on anticipating data the user will need and delivering it to the browsing session in the background . The most prevalent form of caching used in AJAX programming is the XMLHTTPObject which is often used in image-based and data rich applications including graphics and imagery. Caching has also been used in the context of anticipating search engine results, a technique Google uses often to anticipate search queries by users who have logged in and have history captured for their account. This approach to caching is also used in push-based AJAX-based programming models to further increase efficiency and performance. AJAX's continual improvements in caching, transport performance over XML when compared to HTML in search-based and push-based application models has not included transaction-based analysis. The intent of this proposal is to address this area of AJAX performance over XML not discussed in previous research."
