We are building a small new tool for our Endorsed Local Provider (ELP) advisors using Ajax techniques on the client with a service-oriented backend. One developer will build the client-side with Prototype classes, and another will build the backend on our existing ColdFusion application servers. We’ll use CFJSON to easily package data for both environments.
We just designed the service methods that will be used by the client and implemented on the server side. We’ll deploy stub versions of all of the service methods that so that the client and server code can be developed simultaneously. I’m excited because this will enable us to build a great tool in a quick and efficient way, and enable our advisors to help link up more people with the advice they need.
