Doloto: code splitting for network-bound web 2.0 applications
Modern Web 2.0 applications, such as GMail, Live Maps, Facebook and many others, use a combination of Dynamic HTML, JavaScript and other Web browser technologies commonly referred as AJAX to push page generation and content manipulation to the client web browser. This approach improves the responsiveness of these network-bound applications, but the shift of application execution from a back-end server to the client also often dramatically increases the amount of code that must first be downloaded to the browser. This creates an unfortunate Catch22: to create responsive distributed Web 2.0 applications developers move code to the client, but for an application to be responsive, the code must first be transferred there, which takes time. In this paper, we present DOLOTO, a system that analyzes application workloads and automatically performs code splitting of existing large Web 2.0 applications. After being processed by DOLOTO, an application will initially transfer only the portion of ...
