As oppose with this solution, I don't wan't to mess-up with core javascript. What's the best workaround to customize javascript functionalities specifically on admin and this script dataobject_manager/javascript/dataobject_manager.js ?

After couple of hours solving the scenario, I was able to find a solution. Though it's kinda ugly combining prototype js and jquery co'z jQuery.ajax wasn't executing within Behaviour.register. See code below.

                // Customize admin comment delete behavior
	// Added delete confirmation
	// @see dataobject_manager/javascript/dataobject_manager.js
		'#Form_EditForm_Comments a.delete-link': {
			initialize: function() {
				jQuery(this).unbind('click'); //unbind default behavior
			onclick : function(event) {
				// Now show up confirmation message
				deleteIt = confirm('Are you sure you want to delete this comment?');
				if( deleteIt ) {
					target = jQuery(this);
					params = $('SecurityID') ? {'forceajax' : '1', 'SecurityID' : $('SecurityID').value} : {'forceajax' : '1'};

					var options = {
						method: 'post',
						parameters : params,
						onSuccess: function() {
					// Execute deletion
					new Ajax.Request(target.attr('href'), options);

Hope it'll be a help!
