    Implementing AJAX technology

    I am creating an online currency translation system, using VB.net 6.0, and i was wondering whether i could use AJAX for the online part, and how do i do it?

    Simplest Solution.....

    Get the .Net 3.0 runtime.

    In theory, there is no difference between theory and paractice; in practice there is.

    Does this mean that with the .net 3.0 runtime installed in my system, i already have ajax installed in it?

    Re: Implementing AJAX technology

    Correct me if I'm wrong (I think everyone's a newbie to AJAX at the moment), but AJAX is asynchronous Javascript and XML. All modern web browsers have these technologies installed, so essentially, everyone has AJAX! AJAX isn't its own technology, rather a combination of existing ones.

    It allows you communication between client and server without getting a new web page each time, but it depends on what you're making and maybe you don't need AJAX, just standard client/server interaction.

    I use www.xe.com for currency translation which doesn't use AJAX (it develops a new web page for each currency conversion request), but maybe it'd be useful.

    Edited: For development I think you need the AJAX engine, more information available here: http://www.mathertel.de/AJAXEngine/

    Ajax Engine is not needed. It is just of a hundred ajax lib to use avaliale on internet.

    I use ajax on my CMS and i started my own lib from scratch. It's much simpler and i had it on my hands.
    All consequences are eternal in some way.

    Ajax is just Javascript and XML as stated by others already. However, if you want to leverage on .NET to include Ajax functionality in your web site then you need to take a look at http://ajax.asp.net.
