Talk:JavaScript library

Why does JavaScript Framework redirect here? A JavaScript Framework is different from the generic "JavaScript library". A JavaScript library is, as this articles says, just any collection of JavaScript functions that makes coding easier. However, a JavaScript Framework is a specific type of library. It exists primarily to create a baseline between browsers that have different DOM implementations. They create universality in 1) selection / manipulation of events, and 2) handling events. This includes jQuery, YUI, MooTools, and Prototype. How can we have a "Comparison of JavaScript frameworks" page without a page explaining JavaScript frameworks?

This article seems useless because the (short) content is mainly made of references to libraries that actually are Ajax frameworks. A redirect to Ajax Framework would be a better choice. Macaldo (talk) 13:42, 1 April 2009 (UTC)

There is a difference between a JavaScript library and an Ajax framework. Some JavaScript libraries serve as Ajax frameworks, but not all, and many libraries have nothing to do with Ajax. Dilvie (talk) 07:49, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
