Hi all,

I'm wondering if anyone would recommend using JQuery with the ESRI JSAPI compact build and why?

Areas we're interested in are RAD, Performance, Legacy browser compatibility, HTML5 support. The solution will be a GIS enabled, largely data entry based forms solution.

I've seen the examples but they don't make much mention as to the benefits \ disadvantages of such an approach. Any insight would be much appreciated :)
