Sample text

An Ajax Encounter of the Second Kind As flexible and cross-browser capable as the "hidden frames" method of implementing Ajax is, all that has been accomplished is the "AJ" part of Ajax. Which is sort of like the sound of one hand clapping, and that usually means that Igor has been slacking off again. Thankfully, there's another parteh, make that technologyavailable: XML. The problem with XML is that it has developed a reputation of being difficult; however, it doesn't have to be. Just keep in mind that, in those situations, code has a tendency to follow you around, like Igor.

Sounds pretty powerful, doesn't it? Listing 2-9. 0'); var objXMLHTTP; /* Obtain the initial XML document from the web server. */ function initialize() { doPOST(true); } /* Use the XMLHttpRequest to communicate with a web service. description); } } /* Construct a SOAP envelope. xsl'; 39 strSOAP += ''; } strSOAP += ''; strSOAP += ''; return(strSOAP); } /* Handle server response to XMLHTTP requests. output; break; default: alert('error'); break; } } catch(e) { } }

39 40 Listing 2-10.

In addition, to all elements being either closed or self-closing, the tags must always match up in order. This means that the XML document in Listing 2-5 is well formed but the XML document in Listing 2-6 is not well formed. In a nutshell, "well formed" means that there is a right place for everything. Feet are a good example of this: Imagine if Igor used two left feet; the monster wouldn't be well formed and wouldn't be able to dance, 34 35 either. Listing 2-5. > Listing 2-6.
