Ajax related query

Discussion in 'JavaScript' started by Puneetha K, Jan 2, 2014.

    Hi,

    Happy New Year 2014.

    We all know Ajax(Asynchronous JavaScript and XML). Now if we were to divide the Ajax topic into different categories what could be it? Example: ASP.NET Ajax, JQuery Ajax, Ajax Frameworks etc..

    I am trying to list down similar categories. Do you have some suggestions what all could be included?

    Any suggestions is like Gold to me! Thank you!

    Thanks,
    Puneetha

    Well I think the main categories for me would be:

    PHP
    API
    JSON
    Error Handling
    jQuery
    Cross Browser Compatibility

    That's just off the top of my head, there maybe more to come.

    Instead of JSON I'd probably say "data passing" -- since there are other formats you can use like XML or ASCII delimits. (though I'm probably one of the few still using that last one)... Since any language can handle the server side processing it might help to say "Server side" -- then if need be separate that into subsections like PHP, PERL, ASP, PYTHON, etc, etc...

    Of course, I'd tell the jQuery-tards to go shtup themselves, but that's me :D

    Thanks Guys.. its extremely helpful.. If you are to make these categories to form a Forum, then does this sufficient?
    • PHP
    • API
    • Data Passing (E.g: JSON, XML etc)
    • Error Handling
    • jQuery
    • Server Side (E.g: Cross Browser Compatibility)
    Or do you think we could form a better structure?

    I don't think that server side would affect cross browser compatibility. Server side would be related to the programming language used to take the Ajax request and to return a response. The main issues with cross browser compatibility would be the different ways you use Ajax with IE, Chrome, Safari, FireFox etc. If you was to use jQuery as your JavaScript library that would be taken care of. If you was to write this in native JavaScript then you need to handle Ajax slightly different (especially with older versions on IE).

    Agreed on that -- Server side means the language (As I said, PHP, ASP, PERL, PYTHON, whatever); browser compatibility is a client-side (javascript) issue and really give that the ENTIRE topic of cross browser compatibility is addressed either by idiotic frameworks like jQuery, or by a simple set of TRY/CATCH like this one:

    var x;
    if (window.XMLHttpRequest) x = new XMLHttpRequest(); else {
    	try { x = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP.6.0"); } catch (e) {
    		try { x = new ActiveXObject("Msxml2.XMLHTTP.3.0"); } catch (e) {
    			try { x = new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP"); } catch (e) {
    				return false;
    			}
    		}
    	}
    }
    Code (markup):
    I really don't think cross-browser warrants it's own category so far as AJAX is concerned.

    Don't split the categories out straight away or your forum will look too quiet. Wait until you have some traffic. It does mean you have to revisit the old threads but it's worth it.

    Thanks @sarahk that was a BIG BIG suggestion to me. One more suggestion required if you have time. Do you think making a portal like news, tutorials, community like facebook and forum makes sense during launch? OR only forum should be taken up first?

    I'd do all of it, but it depends on how much quality content you can get before it goes live.
    I'm surprised there aren't already sites covering this

    Content is king -- if you can't fill it with enough UNIQUE content of value before launch, leave it out... and blind copypasta from some other site doesn't count. ...which is why news sites are some of the hardest to get started unless you're an opinionated ass willing to voice your opinions for everyone to attack!
