Hi All,

I tried a simple AJAX example I found on net.

Here are the files:

ajax.js


com.ajax.HelloWorld.java


index.jsp


web.xml


directory structure is:-

index.jsp
ajax.js
/src

com/ajax/HelloWorld.java
/WEB-INF

web.xml
/lib
/classes

com/ajax/HelloWorld.class



It is not working as expected, rather i unable to see any change.
On the click of the button in the bottom-left side of IE, an error message is displayed:-


Line : 10
Char : 1
Error: Object expected
Code : 0
URL: http://localhost:8080/AjaxHW/



I am using WinXP SP2, Jdk 1.6, Tomcat 5 and IE 7 for now.
I unable to figure out if I am missing something.
I will appreciate your opinions on this.

Regards,
Sree

Why did you put your directory structure in a quote instead of code tags that would preserve its formatting?

I'd suggest trying it with IE8 or Firefox with Firebug, which will give you better script debugging.

Hi,

Thanks Bear,
I did as you suggested and found that the error was mine.
Following where the changes that I did :-

1. Remove the <script> tags in ajax.js
2. Replace with xmlHttpRequest.setRequestHeader for xmlHttpRequest.setRequestHandler in ajax.js.
One of the major typo mistakes i did
3. I wrote to call doPost inside the same resulting a unwanted recurring loop, I meant to call the doPost from doGet.
4. Change the script type from text/javascript to javascript/text in index.jsp (I dont think it is much of a change though).

Thanks again, JavaRanch rocks

Regards,
Sree
