Back with the second part of his postings on adding Ajax to a website, Joshua Eichorn has this new item on his blog today (picking up from this previous post) – a look at polling the server for the latest data with the HTML_AJAX PEAR package.
I have a lot more changeâ€™s iâ€™d like to make to webthumb so the last article (Adding AJAX to a website step by step) is now the start of the series. In this article will be taking front page of webthumb and making it live. The the stats and recent thumbnails will update in real time, making for a nice slick presentation.
He first focuses on getting real-time information back with the help of Ajax. In his case, it’s grabbing the latest thumbnails created by the application, fetched by periodic polling back from a timed script performing an Ajax request.
