The writer contends that here is a significant gap in knowledge with respect to the performance of XML-based networks selectively updating and optimizing AJAX-based applications over a variety of conditions. According to the writer, by varying the resource load on XML-based networks, the AJAX-based application performance, specifically the updates of selective components of each AJAX application can be quantified in terms of performance. The paper presents a proposal for a research project that will attempt to isolate the effects of each factor loaded onto the XML network over time, with the aim of determining which factors most and least affect AJAX programming performance. The paper contains tables.

From the Paper:

"Within a controlled lab environment, an XML-based network comprised of connections between four servers, each running the Linux operating system to minimize variation due to operating system differences is completed. XML-based links are created at the operating system level and defined as callable routines within Linux. Each of these XML routines is also benchmarked at a "steady state" or no traffic level of performance when the network is initially created in order to create a baseline of performance. XSLT style sheets are created on each server to act as a placeholder portal for the applications that will be developed in the second phase of the project. A small Linux-based database will be on each server, replicated identically across all servers to minimize any variation in program or data structure design. These databases will have transaction data representative of an online ordering system for books and CDs including transaction amounts, SKU numbers, costs, and gross margins."
