Remote Calling Design in Ajax

Category: Editorial

Ajax is an architecture, and there are various ways in which people are implementing ajaxian ideas. Ben and I talk about various approaches wrt return types (proprietary stuff, objects [JSON], XML, HTML).

Jon Tirsen has weighed in with his “Designs for remote calls in Ajax” article.

I’m pleased with how the best practices of doing remoting are emerging in Ajax. Most Ajax libraries have ditched the RPC approach to remoting and are instead using a very specialized form of distributed computing.

Please allow me to explain…

Were you, Jon? You talked a lot about the server returning javascript which then got evaluated by the client. I don’t see that on the RoR screengrab here (btw Dion, where’s the screengrab from? Can you provide a link? Thanks)
