Hello,

I am new to the AJAX scene and am really impressed with what I have seen and read so far about it. I am currently working on an application that I have seen where AJAX could be implemented. The current environment that I use is Java 1.4.2_08 running on Sun One Application Server 7.
Does any one know if there are any known issues with using AJAX on this version of Sun's App server? I am currently proposing AJAX's use, and want to be sure that an upgrade is not needed (to Java 1.5/Application Server 8).

Thanks in advance,

Chris Cornelius

AJAX, being a client-side technology, really doesn't care what is running on the server, as long as it supports HTTP.

The XMLHttpRequest Object is a GET and POST just like any plain old form. Only issue you may see is crashing your server from coding a bad Ajax application. (AKA polling the server every second! There was a post here about that asking why performance dropped with multiple users!)

Thanks Ernest,

That was my thought as well, just wanted some reassurance from the resident AJAX gurus here to take back to upper management.

Dilip,

This is a completely different question from the original post. Please do not hi-jack someone else's post in this manner; it's very rude. If you have a question of your own, open a new topic.
