Everybody is talking about AJAX nowadays since Google Maps and Google Suggest showed the world how cool it can be. We used this technology at a previous employer 3 years ago for displaying live gambling odds… but anyway I thought i’d take a look at what libraries are out there for doing this in .NET.
Primitives come across just fine from the server, but you can also pass complex and custom data structures too – anything that it serialisable in fact. This means having a similar object model available on the server and client.
This is a very quick implementation of AJAX in terms of development effort so it’ll definitely stay in my toolbox… if only I can come up with a useful need for it.
