Subject Re: Regarding Thrift and Ajax
Date Mon, 27 Apr 2009 19:24:06 GMT

Thrift is generally best for internal consumption.  If you expose an API to
the wild world, you need more than just a JSON translator.  You also need
anti-spoofing measures, transaction rate limits, authentication and input
verification.  Raw thrift is really pretty raw and not so long ago, it was
pretty easy to get an Exception by just sending random bytes to a Thrift

That said, if *all* you care about is the JSON/Thrift translation,
jabsorb+thrift looks pretty sweet.
