Book Review: "Ajax in Action"
Let me first preface this review by saying this is the first technical book that I've read cover to cover TWICE prior to posting a review. I had to make sure the stuff stuck, because the material covered in Manning's very excellent "Ajax in Action" is...
Manning publishes "what is Ajax?" screencast
I got an e-mail from Manning Publications about a "screencast" (I'm not sure exactly what that is, but I'm guessing a series of screenshots set against narrated audio) for a "What is Ajax?" presentation. It's 4 minutes long, so it'll be a nice break while...
Bravo, Rick Strahl: comments on Ajax's downsides
I've been asking lots of questions about the potentials of Ajax programming to hurt an app, probing various aspects of the potentials for Ajax-style development to impede on a web app's security , true asynchronous development model , scalability , mobile...
Ajax polling/refreshing
Doing periodic polling in web apps without leaving/reloading a page via Ajax-style programming is something I'm quite excited about. It'll be cool to have a web page auto-update by way of a VB-esque timer or JavaScript window.setInterval() or other related...
More concerns about Ajax programming as a security risk
I previously inquired about whether Ajax programming would pose an increased risk for web apps to become compromised or rendered inoperable due to DOS attacks. I found a link from JamesDam.com about Ajax, and the author (James, assumedly) noted that one...
My first Ajax.NET project
I finally got around to actively using Michael Schwarz's Ajax..NET library for XMLHTTP development with ASP.NET. It's very easy to use (I actually got confused at how easy it was), and if you can get past the return to hard-coding some of the DHTML elements...
Antacid, anyone? The possibility of Ajax scripting attacks
Despite my profession , I've never attested to know much about computers, a fact I'll now undoubtedly prove. I'm wondering if because of the apparently inherent nature of Ajax programming to be a performance concern in executing remote server-side scripts...
Ajax: role in SOA, server load imposition
There's a bit of a debate going on about whether Ajax can properly co-exist with web services in service-oriented architectures. Why not? Michael Meehan's excellent article mentions that while Ajax isn't a great arranged marriage for SOA, they can work...
Other type(s) of asynchronous programming in Ajax?
Ajax at the moment is gaining a lot of popularity for its ability to make out-of-band calls to remote scripts by way of XMLHTTP that function as server-side handlers wired up to client-side JavaScript events. This programming model, for the moment with...
Scott Isaacs on why Ajax is so 1999
Scott Issacs, one of the people who developed DHTML and now an MSN architect, gave his thoughts on "why Ajax is so 1999" in two parts ( Part 1 || Part 2 ). Dare Obasanjo also offers his comments/criticism on the practice, and mentions the custom Ajax...
