I've heard about XMLHttpRequest before, but never really gave it much attention. Which means I didn't even know what it was supposed to do, and therefor never looked into it further.
I only had time to quickly skim through the article, so I'm still left with some more researching to do:
- What about security? Can we XML request over a secure connection?
- Do we have to transfer server-side session ID's manually?
- Any complete frameworks available where have a XMLHttpRequest enabled front-end (client side) which queries a bunch of server-side pages which in their turn query the database (or stored XML information) and return information in XML?
- Can this be a nice platform for three-tire webapplications?
