Interestingly, development is evenly split when it comes to platforms for deploying AJAX-based server applications, with 52.1 percent saying they’ll use Java or J2EE, and 51.9 percent saying Microsoft’s ASP.NET or Atlas–a statistical tie. An additional 19.7 percent are using or considering Macromedia Flash, 9.8 percent Ruby on Rails, and 5.5 percent ColdFusion.
I wasn’t surprised by the most used language, but I couldn’t understand why Ruby is the least language considered for Ajax development? Ruby on Rails is good and fast to develop Ajax applications. But why it is lagging behind all others to attract the crowd?
