AJAX Requests: Dynamic Data and Page Updates

  • Ray Nicholus


This capability was absent from the browser initially. The time without this feature marked the infancy of the web, and with it came along a less-than-ideal user experience that resulted in a fair amount of redundant bytes circulated between client and server. The inefficiency of this primitive model was compounded by the fact that Internet bandwidth was extremely limited by today’s standards. In this chapter, I'll show you how to make AJAX requests without jQuery using both a long-standing method and a beautiful and elegant new method. You will also come to understand all of the concepts central to making HTTP requests to your server from the browser using JavaScript.
