Erlang and Ajax Web Applications

Erlang and Ajax Web Applications Today web development is dominated by PHP, ASP, RubyOnRails and numerous Java frameworks, most of them focus on serverside HTML generation. Web developers start to become aware of Erlang, but the majority doesn’t feel yet the need to leave their easily learned and simple to use language or framework. Any attempt to write a web framework in a functional language so far mostly managed to attract only developers which were already familiar with that specific language. But next generation Ajax Web applications are different and have different web server and framework requirements and fortunately this requirements match very well with what Erlang has to offer.
