Fewer Roundtrips to the Server

Gary Potter points us to an open source project Sabre has opened up called Rico. Rico currently consists of a couple of javascript libraries that enable drag&drop functionality, some cool effects, and some interesting routines that access server data without requiring a round-trip (post to server then reload of the same page with updated data). The technology is all Ajax – asynchronous javascript and XML, so all my friends, whether in java, .net, or domino, can take advantage of it.
Check out the demos and see what inspires you.
And remember:
Round-trips to Hawaii – Good
Round-trips to the server – Bad
