O2 Script: DWR FunctionsViewer and Invoker

If you are using (or testing) DWR, you might find the O2 scripts I just published quite interesting and useful:
There are quite a number of powerful O2 techniques at play here. For example note the use of the HtmlAgilityPack to quickly fetch the details of a web page's links, or the use of Jint (Javascript Interpreter for .NET) to access the AST of the dynamically created DWR's Javascript pages (which contain the details of the java functions that can be involved on the server)

Note: DWR is a Java/Javascript AJAX-powerhouse Web Remoting technology (see for more details)
