-- In China where there are a number of outsourcing service companies that have become used to accepting everything from their buyers, there is a group of Web development professionals striving to incubate their own ideas. “Based on the survey, 85% of the developers are very interested in AJAX in China; they are also afraid of switching to it due to the difficulties. I think things should be better in IT-leading countries”, according to Mr. Zhang, CTO of JoyiStar Corporation specialized in AJAX development tool, “We have kept our eyes on Web development since 1999, when an idea of easy-to-use tool was formed”. In 2005, JoyiStar developed AJAX Webshop 1.0 Version but it was not released publicly. “We were not totally satisfied with it but we were glad to see what had come out of our idea. We delivered it to the ISVs, system integrators and listened to their comments, then focused on research.” Mr. Zhang said. After one year, AJAX Webshop 2.0 Version was released publicly in February, 2006. “We made some waves.” Mr. Zhang laughed.

Mr. Zhang forecasted: “Since it supports Java, PHP, C#, VB languages and features superior code editing environment, Visual drag-and-pull, great openness and extensibility, now is the time for us to be part of the force promoting AJAX in China, in cooperation with our 10 big distributors in major cities.
