comment AJAX event, prevents other page actions
It sounds like something synchronous is going on (or at least that functionality is being disabled while the web app waits for the AJAX call to complete). Is there any chance you can set up a publicly accessible example of this scenario? It would be enormously useful to be able to truly help you. This question also may get moved to Stack Overflow, since it sounds like a specific programming problem, not a conceptual one.

-1 since this doesn't answer the original question at all. Also, answers that are little more than a link and no explanation aren't useful for the Stack Exchange Q/A format, since external links may disappear at some point, leaving no reference to what the suggested answer was.

comment Loose Coupling in Object Oriented Design
@TMN, the extra coupling is in how I imply that the second example would probably end up internally creating a new Track object. The instantiation of the object is being coupled to a method that should otherwise just be adding a Track object to some sort of list in the Album object (breaking the Single Responsibility Principle). Should the way that the Track gets created ever need to be changed, the addTrack() method would also need to be changed. This is not so in the case of the first example.

comment Loose Coupling in Object Oriented Design
Is this a document that was put together by a professor or trainer? Based on the URL of the link you provided, it looks like it was for a class, though I don't see any credit in the document as to who created it. If this was part of a class, I'd suggest you ask these questions of the person who provided the document. I do agree with your reasoning, by the way - it would seem apparent to me that an Album class would want to inherently know about a Track class.
