While conventional AJAX requires developers to program using a number of different client side and server side languages in multi level architecture, empty client platforms enable the use of a single model with one layer. This allows developers to focus on what they want to achieve rather than on how to do so.
The 'empty client' approach could supply well known desktop methodologies for web development which results in simple design patterns. This lets developers design highly interactive, data rich applications with basically the same productivity of designing desktop applications by dragging and dropping controls.
In addition, it is possible to provide pre-defined application blocks with the 'empty client' approach as most of the processing is done on the server. This drives up even more the efficiency and productivity of developing AJAX and enables the customization and extension of .NET components.
