New programming technique on the rise

I’m not hardcore in terms of programming, but what I see now around the net is the rise of this new approach in programming called AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML), a newly-coined term and technique which incorporates XHTML, Cascading Style Sheets, JavaScript, DOM, XML, XSLT, and the XMLHttpRequest object. With this at hand, we can make requests to the server without reloading the page as well as parse and work with XML documents. A good read of AJAX Model resides here.

    • I think computer schools should start honing their skills on this new web programming technique. With all the big web-based apps using AJAX, it’s the way to go.

    • Yap… In some cases, some top rated computer schools here in our country still using some bad coding practices.

      its been around for quite a while but has only started to gain popularity now. Its really just Javascript and XML but now people are learning how to use it and improve the user experience.

    • I agree, that’s why they coined the new term AJAX.

    • sylver

      the first time i heard this software was in google..I think (m not sure though) the google map was made of AJAX..

    • checkout … an ajax based IM client!

    • stupid stupid stupid me… it’s already on your list 🙂 oopss.. sorry..

      ajax is really big now.. before, i thought AJAX was just another kind of detergent, just like SOAP 🙂 LOL!

    • Haha. Dagdagan mo pa ng SOAP, pwede ka nang maglaba!

    • Krakista

      Kailangan may alam ka sa SOAP at AJAX kung mag-aaply ka sa Procter & Gamble.

    • Pag nagdagdag ka pa ng DOM, di ka na kailangan maglaba. 🙂

      AJAX is just a super-hypey (read: stupid) term for what should have always been a capability that’s built into Javascript:

      SIMPLY… the ability to retrieve the contents of a URL and stuff it into a string!! It’s THAT basic.

      Before XMLHttpRequest became widely supported, you had to use anoyingly complex inline frame voodoo to accomplish the same thing.

    • Let’s just hope this doesn’t become like Flash and become overused for the sake of using it. Use the right tools for the right job.

      hmm.. kind of late to post but for information’s sake. the worm that took myspace down was done with AJAX from a guy named Samy.

    • ajaxs been here for quite sometime now and people in IT industry nowadays treat it as if its the coolest thing since slice bread..

      ooh, my site (homepage ng bayan) is made from ajax by the way..
