AJAX is the latest technology emerged in web development, allowing rich asynchronous dynamic interfaces deployed within a normal web browser. Collaborative web services that aim managing more information throughput among partners, may encapsulate this technology through light Web Interface for sharing data according good service-level. In order to validate the effectiveness of the AJAX technology framework in the design of a Web Interface, we have considered as a case study one of the paradigmatic collaborative applications: a web-chat application. In the paper we have compared the QoS between a traditional client-server web chat model and the asynchronous one implemented using the AJAX-model driven framework chat model.
