This proposal aims to evaluate the performance of AJAX-based collaborative, workflow-based applications' performance on XML-based networks over a representative range of use scenarios. The proposal use of scenarios will include the use of a yield curve of network traffic or congestion, measuring AJAX applications' degradation in performance over time. The proposal will then present scalability ratios and predictors of AJAX-based application performance in low, medium and high-transaction level enterprise applications. The paper details the three stages to the project plan and the evaluation criteria to be utilized in this study.

From the Paper:

"XML is now the de facto communications protocol used globally for integrating Web-based applications and in conjunction with the AJAX programming language, been credited with the adoption of Web 2.0 design principles (O'Reilly, 2006). These in turn have created a groundswell of interest in social networking applications and the rapid global adoption of social networks including Facebook, Friendfeed, LinkedIn, Twitter, MySpace and others (Bernoff, Li, 2008). This dynamic of Web 2.0-based application growth most visible in social networks is being fueled by the combination of increasing AJAX programming framework stability and extensibility (Robertson, Saxton, Van Gucht, Vansummeren, 2009) and optimization of XML and XSLT style sheets for rapid development and customization (Groppe, Groppe, Bottcher, Wycisk, Gruenwald, 2009). Inherent in collaborative, workflow-based applications is also the need for managing structural recursion of data sets and the ability to navigate open source libraries, ontologies and databases as well (Robertson, Saxton, Van Gucht, Vansummeren, 2009). In short, XML has enabled the developed of enterprise-wide collaborative, workflow-based applications that need to replicate the use of SQL-derived data to fully model order capture systems online. Extrapolating the results of this study also has implications for how e-commerce systems' performance will be impacted by the performance of AJAX-based applications on XML networks."
