Hi Tectrix,

That is a good question.

The good thing about TheBeerHouse is that it does employ a very sound architectural base. You can't really go wrong using the techniques in the book, at least as a great starting point.

The two areas I can think of right off the top of my head where the solution is a bit "lacking" are 1) no exception handling; and 2) no concurrency control. Personally, I think both of those would have to be incorporated in order to bring this up to the level of a serious commercial application.

There may be others that aren't coming to mind right now; maybe someone else could chime in here.

As far as AJAX is concerned, once you've followed Microsoft's suggestions for enabling AJAX in an existing non-AJAX application, it's merely a matter of digging into the UI and getting it done.
