My idea is maybe totally stupid but I nevertheless write it here ;-)
It seems that we try to build more and more n-tier applications which
mimics rich-client applications. So many frameworks appeared which try to
mask the lacks inherently found in the current web model : struts, JFaces,
ASPx, and so on... Maybe we should try to attack the pb at its roots, ie
to enhance the client browser to be richer in functionnalities than today,
especially the kinds of available components, the ability to make controls
in an easier manner on the client and in more structured way, and so on...
One possibility could (why not) to use the eclipse framework as a new
generation of web browser. A web browser is not obligatory a html
browser!!! We could extend the plugin.xml format (or another one) to
provide the user with more components. This format should be used by the
server which would send commands in this format to the client which could
interpret it in the eclipse framework. So we would have a means to program
more sophisticated applications with the web philosophy...and it should be
simpler to program and maintain than in the newt generation of frameworks
in java or dotNet.
