Migrating Legacy Applications to AJAX

There are many ways that legacy applications can be improved by using AJAX

Much of the focus in using AJAX has been around implementing Web 2.0 applications. There are, however, many ways that legacy applications can be improved by using AJAX. From client-side form validation, grid sorting to fetching only the data that's changed between pages, AJAX can significantly enhance the user experience and reduce server load bringing legacy applications to the next level.
