To solve security issues, AJAX apps need to talk to an intermediate server that acts as a proxy between the web client and the database. This means that the AJAX developer has to develop lots of server-side code that coordinates between the proxy and the database. In addition to requiring precious development cycles, the proxy is a performance bottleneck. In this session we will examine some of the unique challenges faced by AJAX programmers trying to write apps in the DaaS environment. We'll also discuss a new paradigm for DaaS, aimed squarely at AJAX programmers, that shifts the database APIs into the client, and discuss its implication on everything from security to the design of the database query language.
