This is why we should - form the technical stand point - talk about the
"page" paradigm versus the "desktop application" paradigm. Actually, most of
the proponents offer "page" based paradigm tools and this is translated into
very poor user experience. Now the pendulum is going the other way and we
finally have tools that offer rich user experience. Therefore, to do so, we
need good and rich framework to execute the code either specified with
declarative coding (XML) or imperative coding (usual procedural code).
