Hi Janko,

Nice to see your work on squeak... I just had a quick look on the 
website and I don't relly get the specificities of this framework 
compared to existing ones...

Can you give us more information on AIDA especially compared to seaside 
and also hv2 

Are seaside and AIDA framework at the same level ?

or what AIDA is better for ? In which case would you consider using AIDA 
or seaside or HV2?

Is it efficient to deal with static web pages ?

I've seen that prototype and scriptaculous are integrated, do you use 
the existing packages on squeaksource ?

Thanks for your response and your work ;) It's always interesting to see

> To introduce it a bit: AIDA/Web is a web server and framework for 
> complex web applications with integrated Ajax support, rich collection 
> of web components to build web pages programatically, MVC-like 
> separation of presentation from domain, nice looking and bookmarkable 
> url links, with integrated session and security management and many more.
> AIDA/Web is known by its simplicity but still allows building most 
> demanding web applications of many sorts. It has everything you need 
> for a real web app, together with Ajax.
> It is also a mature one, running web apps in production since 1996. It 
> is used in many intranet business apps from Gas billing system for all 
> gas in Slovenia to logistics management system called e-logis and 
> recently a CMS like system for Quality and Business process management.
> I hope therefore that Squeakers will find Aida useful and a good 
> alternative for building your web applications!
> Best regards
