I am wondering if anyone has used/heard of the following Commercial Ajax frameworks. I am hoping to gather opinions which will be part of me decision factors on which one to purchase...

SmartClient (http://www.smartclient.com)
BackBase (http://www.backbase.com)
Bindows (http://www.bindows.net)
TIBCO Ajax Framwork (http://www.tibco.com/software/rich_internet_application/default.jsp)
VisualWeb GUI (http://www.*****************/Home/tabid/36/Default.aspx)

Thanks in advanced.

You really should look at what they have to offer, support forums, and how to use their code.

don't BUY any of them.

there are plenty of FREE libraries out there which are just as good if not better.

I use Yahoo! UI. Other include dojo and mootools

use them.. keep it free

ps: there are hundreds of AJAX libraries out there.. a year from now a lot of them won't exist.. only a few will dominate. so why spend money on an AJAX library now when it will (probably) be non-existant in a year? use the free stuff.. wait for the playing field to level out and the dust to settle.. if a commerical AJAX library dominates in the future buy that one.. for now just use the free stuff
