same basic purposes.
The main difference that I've always touted is:
jabsorb is based on JSON-RPC standard (although with new circular references
support, standard JSON-RPC is extended)
DWR uses it's own inherent protocol, but new JSON features are being added.
DWR also has some built in support for reverse ajax. This can be done with
jabsorb too, but it's not as integrated like it is with DWR.
DWR appears to have a larger code base and more bells and whistles, while
jabsorb is a bit lighter and simpler.
So it appears that the libraries are currently converging in their feature
Both jabsorb and DWR have been been around for quite awhile. jabsorb was
formerly known as JSON-RPC-Java. (It was originally forked off of
JSON-RPC-Java, but then the parent project joined jabsorb to form a unified
project, yet retaining the jabsorb name.)
It would be nice to hear some pros and cons from anyone who has used both
