JQuery, Microsoft & Visual Studio

I came across something very interesting last week and just wanted to make a note of it here. I’ve talked before about including prototypejs in your SharePoint application pages, but a recent announcement from Microsoft has made me consider using an alternative.

You can read about Microsoft’s news to include JQuery in Visual Studio on Scott’s blog.

“The jQuery intellisense annotation support will be available as a free web-download in a few weeks (and will work great with VS 2008 SP1 and the free Visual Web Developer 2008 Express SP1)”

I’ll be looking into JQuery in the next couple weeks to see how it performs against prototypejs and i’ll post any findings here, so stay tuned!

Erik was kind enough to post some info related to prototype and the content editor not behaving well together. It seems that JQuery might work better in this scenario. You can read more about that here.
