Comment on "Separation of Model and View Web Frameworks"
by Scott Stevenson — Aug 02
@Andrew Barry: eg a dialog box represents a little MVC island, involving the data that's being collected - and only when they choose OK (or hopefully a verb better representing the task)

I don't think this is the same thing. The dialog box is in the same memory space as the rest of the app and can freely share data without serialization/de-serialization, is written in the same language, uses the same frameworks, and so on.

I realize that the client side is written in JavaScript by nature, and don't expect that to change. What I'm looking for is a server-side framework that at least does most of obvious stuff in terms of implementing ajax-style interactions without asking the developer to invent all of the glue themselves.

Rails has been a pioneer in this area, and it looks like Zend Framework (PHP) is integrating Dojo in the upcoming 1.6 release, which is currently at RC1.
