Wasn't Ajax advertising a new, refreshing scent?

Or was that Comet?

You need a sense of humor Thomas.

But, Ajax was a British warship in World War II

What amuses me is the obvious (at least to me) INTENT behind Jesse
coming up with "AJAX", after the previously enjoyed popularity of "SOAP"

So, what's next? CASCADE? (you figure it out...)

Believe it or not: I /have/ a great deal of humor (and that does not mean
transpiration). However, that does no help you if you do not understand
the joke. Hence my question.

Fair enough. A lot of that joke would lose it's implications when
translated :)

What amuses me the most is how most of the people who come posting "I
want AJAX" don't have the first clue what it really is. It's a term some
board room pundit heard and they just had to have it. Then, at the
country club they can brag "Yeah, we use AJAX on our site".

Too bad I use more reliable methods :)

Ajax = a brand of scouring cleanser sold in the US.

I'd have to assume the warship got its name from the Greek warrior of the
same name... I have no idea where he got his name.

Ajax is also sold in the UK. It would appear that Comet is not.

Hi,

Well 'to AJAX or not to AJAX' that is the question I was asking my self.
Do I realy need AJAX and when I saw a script developed with javascript
and that the script created an ActiveX object, my heart stopped! After
being defribillated :-) I thought of remote scripting using an IFRAME,
after all I read a lot about how to do this and I tried to give it a shot.

Well success granted and I got my first (not final yet) remote
scripting; the alternative AJAX without using AJAX. Entering a postcode,
onblur the textfield, the server script grabs the data from the database
and pushes it back to the client-script. Wow the client page didn't even
blinc.

Quite nice, need ... cewl... But euhm, now I am biting my lip.

Remote scripting using IFRAME works, is quite nice, but surely there are
lots of disadvantages using the technique. Can somebody point me out the
disadvantages working with the IFRAME methodology? What are the drawbacks?

Thanx in advance.

Danny

In general the IFRAME method is superior, it's general flaws are in
the area of accessibility, hidden frames aren't completely hidden and
can confuse users, and the higher complexity. The advantages of
faster downloads and incremental activity normally outweigh them for
data intensive systems.

Hi,

Well 'to AJAX or not to AJAX' that is the question I was asking my self.
If you have to ask yourself that, you typically don't need it.
Do I realy need AJAX and when I saw a script developed with javascript
and that the script created an ActiveX object, my heart stopped! After
being defribillated :-) I thought of remote scripting using an IFRAME,
after all I read a lot about how to do this and I tried to give it a shot.
Remote scripting with IFrames has been around for almost a decade. It's
very reliable.
Well success granted and I got my first (not final yet) remote
scripting; the alternative AJAX without using AJAX. Entering a postcode,
onblur the textfield, the server script grabs the data from the database
and pushes it back to the client-script. Wow the client page didn't even
blinc.
onblur? Don't use onblur, use onchange.
Quite nice, need ... cewl... But euhm, now I am biting my lip.
Stop, biting your lip hurts after a while.
Remote scripting using IFRAME works, is quite nice, but surely there are
lots of disadvantages using the technique. Can somebody point me out the
disadvantages working with the IFRAME methodology? What are the drawbacks?
Lack of IFrame support.
Lack of Scripting support.
Maybe lack of cross-frame scripting support.

Of all the options available, IFrame scripting is the most widely
supported/reliable method there is though.
Thanx in advance.
