  • AJAX support! :)
    (AMAX? AJAM? it has to be buzzword-worthy)
    • Heh. I do AJAX (actually AJAHB where HB = HTML blob) with Mason. My AJAX code makes a request for /ajax/... and that executes a Mason component which returns a JS data structure. The structure is a hash where the keys are element ids and the values are chunks of HTML. Then the JS code just finds the element and sets innerHTML. Piece of cake, no special AJAX support needed.

      The idea that I'm going to export server-side methods/components, return some sort of data, parse it, and then mess with the DOM is
  • From a current job posting at Amazon []:

    We are looking for PERL gurus with major strength in an OO language – C++ or Java. Linux, Apache, mod_perl, mason, Remedy, cgi, Oracle – these are the tools we want today; but C++/Java, jsp, servlets and much more are the direction we want for the future.

    Hmmm... It looks like they are looking for people to eventually port their stuff to java servlets.

    The word lemmings comes to mind.

    • Heh, from what I've heard there's a _lot_ of different sub-groups inside Amazon trying lots of stuff. I wouldn't take any one job posting as gospel. If you search for software dev jobs mentioning Mason on their site it gets 20 hits, and only 2 have that wording AFAICT.
