Someone just sent me a link to this new offering, from Microsoft Labs, called Volta. I haven’t actually tried it out, but if it does what it says it does, it could add a new twist to AJAX-based web development.

What it purports to do is to allow you to design a web app as a .Net client application, slice it up into different tiers, and spit out cross-browser JavaScript for the client tier, web services for the server tier, and all the boilerplate code to tie everything together.

At first glance I got all giddy and thought that this could convert any .Net client application to a web-based app, but a closer look seems to show that to not be the case. You have to use the Volta libraries and mix and match traditional HTML with your .Net code.

Might be worth a look.
