good day,
i send an ajax request. before i get the response for that request, i make another request. i receive the response of the second, but not the first.
so to solve this problem, i have called the javascript function that contains the second ajax request, from the response of first request. by this way, we could avoid the second request being made, before the first response.

sequence of steps that created problem

1. ajaxrequest1 -------------->server
2. ajaxrequest2 -------------->server
3. ajaxresponse2 <-------------server


end

my solution

1. ajaxrequest1 -------------->server
2. ajaxresponse1(call javascript function that makes 2nd request) <-------------server
3. ajaxrequest2 -------------->server
4. ajaxresponse2 <-------------server


end

but this somehow, i think, limits ajax's power. is there any other solution.

have a great day,
krishna prasad g

Without seeing your code sounds like you are using global variables to hold the request object. When you make the second request you write over the first.

Libraries such as jQuery and Prototype make it easy to create Ajax requests without the need for global variables.
