Example text

All we had to provide was a URL, the HTTP method, and a callback function. Request worked out how to create the XHR object and filled in the blanks when shaping the request. It also simplified the callback semantics considerably, allowing us to supply a function that would only be called once on completion of the response, and that therefore only had to deal with application logic. Prototype provides a lot more than just the Ajax helper classes. Request as an example of a well-designed wrapper object.

Flow control and visual presentation of content have been largely delegated to the client-side JavaScript tiers. Not every Ajax application will follow this approach to its full extreme, nor would it be appropriate to do so. We said at the outset that the architecture of web applications is not a well-defined, solved problem, and that plenty of room still exists for innovation. Ajax disrupts the web architecture landscape by moving the innovation in new directions, not by providing a single solution.

In a minority of cases, this is extremely useful information to have, but normally, it’s a distraction. We assigned a callback handler called onreadystatechange in the previous section. This function will be called at least once for every ready state that the XHR object undergoes. In your onreadystatechange function, you will need to manually check the readyState property to determine where the request currently stands in its lifecycle and whether you can process the final result. readyState will always be one of these predefined values: Value State Description 0 Uninitialized open() has not been called.
