You must be aware of QoS when you are writing Rich Internet Application (RIA), especially when you are using AJAX. Why? And what aspects should be considered in QoS of RIA?
Here are some points:
2. Loading CSS style file *.css by <link> tag may fail, which results in ugly page layout;
3. Loading images by <img> tag may fail, which may confuse users;
The above scenarios do not occurs often in development period. Because you may using local HTTP server to serve resources, or you may have high bandwidth with slow latency. But if you deploy your applications to server, your server may be busy all the time to serve resources, and will fail to serve some resources at some uncertain time. And people may report such bugs if they are in beta tests, but people may lose their deals or money if such failures happen in real online.
So, QoS is required.
There are other QoS aspects. Stay tuned for more coming discussions.
