There should be no reason why you can't write unit tests for AJAX applications. For one thing, the server-side component can be easily tested by calling it from a test harness such as httpunit. The java-script side may be trickier, but nothing stops you from writing a javascript test harness, in fact there may be one.

Furthermore, as AJAX techniques become standardized, standard tools such as unit test libraries will become more widely available and used. Currently Ajax programming is very bare-bones; once there is a large body of AJAX code there will be corresponding tests.
