Hi,
I am new to AJAX. Can anyone please help me how to populate a table with data that comes after AJAX request in the form of XML. I mean how to populate the HTML table dynamically from javascript.

Thanks in advance..

Well you have insertRow and insertCell or createElement and appendChild

Loop through the responseXML and use those things I mentioned above.

If you a new and are just practicing, then it would be a lot better if you could change your server side code to return formatted HTML which you could just directly use - with something like document.getelementById("myDiv").innerHTML = response.text().

You might also consider starting with a java script library like Jquery which would save you a lot of hassle which browser compatibility issues.

DWR is interesting, but it imposes a whole different way of working than anyone is used to in JavaScript. I'd not recommend adopting it just for Ajax usage.
