Building the Behavioral Layer for a Network Processor with AJAX
If you’re one of those web developers who’s searching for new and imaginative ways to use the neat features that come packaged with AJAX, then this material might be what you’re looking for. Welcome to the second article of the series “Creating a network processor with AJAX.” Made up of three understandable tutorials, this series shows you how to build a networking application that uses AJAX to perform several queries in the background, and display the corresponding results on the browser.

So the program in question can be used at least to perform basic tasks in real networking environments. That's pretty good, considering that all these processes are executed using only a web browser!
