Harshing on ESRI's Web ADF
Check out this post on the James Fee GIS Blog:
ESRI’s Web ADF is One Horrific Development Platform
After you read the post, read some of the comments.
YEEOOOOWCH! Harsh. Fair, but harsh.
One of our devs did a project with the Web ADF (the rest of us took one look at it and ran like hell). Her feedback was highly similar, if often much more colorful. Add to that the fact 9.3 may not be compatible with 9.2 (migration toolkit <> backward compatible), and I think I’ll remain in evasion-and-escape mode with the Web ADF.
