Joe, what's your point? This is like saying the grass is green and the sky is
blue. You can say this about everything, from JAVA/JSPs to RPGIV to CL to C/C++
to Python to Perle to PHP.
What's the point?

Ajax is here to stay it is the next cool toy/tool to play with. It will displace
a lot of Java/JSPs that's for certain, but it will also enable people who shied
away from the JSP or similar model to get into web development using just
JavaScript and RPG IV (or pick the host language you prefer most).
I see 80 percent of RPG IV code out there is poorly written due to rushing
through it or perhaps indifference on the part of the programmer. I see this in
most applications in other languages as well. "Make it work for my specific
situation and nothing more." 

I just helped out a hospital software company and the Ajax implementation of
their hospital registration and lab coding software is killer now compared to
the old green screens. And it runs faster! 
Lest we forget--5250 use interactive CPW where as Ajax uses CGI which is batch
