AjaxCFC for jQuery Alpha Release

I finished today the implementation of AjaxCFC for jQuery. It's the same Ajax <-> CF integration you already know, but using the jQuery Ajax engine. It supports full JSON and WDDX serialization, has improved error handling, improved log4javascript integration, still supports named and unnamed arguments, and just so you can use it right away, it's back compatible with the DWR syntax. The only incompatibility is the change of the $() function, which you can actually override if you wish, but I didn't on my release.

This is great news folks, because jQuery is extensible and allows for easily dropping plugins into your code...
I will work in documenting it for beta release, but those of you who wish to use the bleeding edge version just add a comment and I'll send you the code. I'd appreciate comments and suggestions from those who wish to check it out.

Public Beta release should come sometime next week.

Rob & I have been using jQuery for awhile now and even thrown out the possibility of making a version of AjaxCFC that uses jQuery under the hood. Well, Rob went off and actually did it!!! Today, Rob officially announced the AjaxCFC for jQuery Alpha Release.

If you needed another reason to use jQuery, it’s here
Lucky I did because the end all reason to use jQuery in Coldfusion was released today as Rob Gonda announced the Ajax CFC for jQuery Alpha Release earlier today. I’ve liked everything I’ve seen of AjaxCFC, especially since there is quite a bit of support for Model Glue around the AjaxCFC community as well. Looks like this will knock out the last straw holding me to using Prototype.
