Example text

On line 4, we include the library, and on line 7, we create an instance of the client. Then, on line 8, we set isAsync to true because we want to make an asynchronous request for the XML data file. Next, on lines 1028, we add our callback function; this function takes the downloaded XML document, creates an HTML list, and then shows the list using innerHTML. On line 11, we grab the XML DOM document from response XML. We have to use the XMLHttpRequest Part I: 45 46 Part I: object directly because HttpClient doesn't wrap this.

Html, are also shown; they can be any fragment of HTML or other text you want to load into the DIV. Part I: 41 42 Part I: Listing 3-1.

Line 4 includes the XMLHttpRequest wrapper, HttpClient, which is instantiated on line 7. Because we want to make an asynchronous request, we turn that mode on at line 8 and then create our callback function (lines 1012). This callback will take the result from the load and set the innerHTML of the target element to it.

The simplest use case is to download a chunk of HTML from your server and insert it into the page using innerHTML. The biggest differentiator between document-centric approaches and remote scripting is how the design relates with the server. Remote scripting-style AJAX is tightly coupled to the server and gives you a direct interface to the server-side code, using a standardized system to transfer the call and request between the client and the server. Document-centric approaches are loosely tied to the server; the only requirement is that the data be in the usable format, allowing you to generate plain text, HTML, or XML in whatever manner you want.
