A big challenge for AJAX applications is the increased database load. An AJAX application makes much more frequent requests to the server than its non-AJAX counterpart does. If all those AJAX requests have to be served by the database, the database would not be able to handle the load. The stateful persistence context in Seam acts as an in-memory cache. It can hold information throughout a long running conversation, and hence helps to reduce the database round trips.
