Program AJAX Pages the WinForms way

I accidently ran into Visual WebGUI as I searched google for the words “AJAX and WinForms“. The concept is pleasing: just program application like you are used to when program WinForm applications. The author calls this technique the WOW model: WinForms Over The Web. The output is a web application which makes heavy use of AJAX and has a Windows look and feel. At the time of this writing, the framework only supports Internet Explorer. Code
Project offers two tutorials: Developing your first Visual WebGui application and Developing a Visual WebGui gateway.

Globfx’s Neoswiff follows a similar approach, but compiles Flash .swf Files, Client/Server logic has to be done “by hand”. With Visual WebGUI you can program Client/Server AJAX apps just using Visual Studio as design tool. When Firefox support comes, this is definately a technology to evaluate.

I like the JSON approach.
