No More HTML Viewing?

The day before yesterday I read an article on Saving View Source. Nearly all the new webpages compliant to AJAX nowadays do not offer any HTML code in thier Source. Instead they generate them dynamically at client end using Javascript thus reducing the Servers TODO list of dishing out HTML code to the requestor. The best example to see this in action is the GMAIL page. If you do a view source, you see a single line of Javascript call doing all what it wants to do.

I like this new approach even though it may require more maintenance efforts and remains difficult to debug and write during development. Why? There are certain great advantages it has:
1. It's not easy to steal your webpage's look, feel, functionality and identity (Though it is very much possible using tools like Firebug) .
2. Makes it tough to be hacked (though maybe not that much but still may be for novice it does act as a detterent)
3. A lot of Page Logic remains on the client so the responses to actions is quicker thus providing better End user experience.

ABAP Webdynpro & ABAP Classes Comparison Tool

Since we required to find the diffrences in code between our two development systems, I have written a Report in ABAP to check and then compare the Webdynpro Components and classes between our two SAP servers. This report displays the result in Webdynpro Application, but I think writing a ABAP report also will makes sense since then you can assign a transaction to it and use it in SAP GUI. I will be working on that in the future and will most probably make it open source. Right now have a look at the screenshot of the result.

I know I am a bit late in starting but atleast I am should consider the fact that 99% of India's people still don't write a word on the blogs (that's 1.2 billion) I am pretty much in time :-) .....let's say maybe 10 yrs or 20 yrs ahead of them (i.e. If blogging actually counts as a reliable indicator towards that)

Something has led me to blogging suddenly, some good blogs that I had read recently. Though this is even better if you are looking forward to just pass your free time. And then don't forget that blogs have more effect then you bargained for.

Let me know if you think I should go ahead with writing on some theme.
