In a few short months, Ajax has moved from an obscure and rarely used technology to the hottest thing since sliced bread.



Obscure? Hardly. Not all the rage perhaps as it is now, but certainly well-known and used by experienced Web developers.



And there are actual reasons for using XML rather than HTML (and hence the name AJAX).


Anyway, thanks for a good refresher article on remote scripting. Not sure how coupling the design of your client to your services provider makes things better, though.

      Er... have their fun? When somebody big like google jumps on a "bandwagon", and creates the first really easy to use web app for maps / directions, you gotta wonder if it's really that much of a "bandwagon" after all... then again, developers that don't like to learn new things tend to call them bandwagons to justify their ignorance. Oh well.
