SAS and AJAX

SAS has no built in support for AJAX at this time. However, you can hack up some of it by using enabling technologies such as ASP.NET or just code it yourself in JavaScript.

However, I have coded AJAX bits in JavaScript using SAS/IntrNet and found the experience less than desirable. A better way to make this happen, IMO, is to use the new Atlas framework from Microsoft:

http://atlas.asp.net/Default.aspx?tabid=47

It's quick and easy and makes coding AJAX much easier. JavaScript is god-awful due to lack of true debugging support but it works. Make it easier though by focusing on doing the AJAX piece in Atlas and let them handle the JavaScript bits. My $0.01.
