Hello Eric,

I have some questions:

1. Has the source been tested in OS X?

2. Will AJAX work in Safari & Firefox?

3. When is the book coming out?

The reason I asked this first question is because I heard that AJAX's JavaScript is really a of JScript.NET.

Well, can't wait for your response!

Kindest,

All of the code should run in OS X. I orginally developed some of the applications in this book for a person that thinks there is nothing but MAC and Linux in this world.

Ajax works in IE 5.0, 5.5, 6.0, Netscape 6.x, 7.x, Mozilla 1.x, FireFox 1.x, Safari 1.x., & Opera 8.01

Book comes out in November. http://radio.javaranch.com/pascarello/2005/07/06/1120650829266.html

If you go back in my blog to June, you can see where I talk about AJAX.

Ajax is just plain old JavaScript and works with any server side language.

Just as a data point: my BlackBox game, which uses AJAX technology, was developed on OS X in Safari.

Eric & Bear,

Thanks for the responses... The reason I am displaying concern about this is because from the best of my understanding AJAX's JavaScript is really a derivative of JScript.NET. And from what I gathered, Microsoft wasn't going to support IE on OS X, anymore.

Kindest,

It has nothing to do with .NET, it has been around before .NET really was even thought about. The never version of .NET framework (ASP.NET 2.0)includes AJAX in it, maybe that is what you were hearing about. The new .NET framework will be giving JAVA a run for their money! lol

The problem I think you would run into is that the DOM may limit the size of the file when processing it and that all depends on the computer that is running the code.
