Atlas, web technology for the future

One of the bad thing when we browse web pages is its postback event. That means at anytime we want to change information on a web page, a postback event’ll happen and all the webpage’ll be refreshed, this problem make the web become not friendly as windows application.

There are many developers out there who are trying to handle this problem but no one get into the best result until a concept call “AJAX” appears. This stands for Asynchronous JavaScript And XML, Ajax is an approach to creating responsive and interactive webpage that laverages the capabilities built into browsers.The core about Ajax is asynchronous, it using XMLHTTP object to transfer object along the web. This object has already appeared some years before but it’s just used for IE browser. Nowaday, it has been plug-in most of the popular browsers like IE, Firefox, Safari so i think it lays the foundation for Ajax to develope. Using Ajax you can make an update data only in an area on a page, not all web page as before

Based on Ajax, Mircrosoft has recently announced a framework called ATLAS, this concept is developed based on Ajax, it used XMLHTTP to builtd a framework in the side of client. This framework provide a object-oriented approach, allows you to make class, event handling, data type, object serialization (browser specified). Especially drag drop, popup, databoud listview control, Navigation control… something that is difficult to implement at the server-side application.

Microsoft, Google, Amazone has used Ajax in their website and recently is Yahoo. They has contruct their own controls, component and integrated them into website based on Ajax, you can try it at : http://www.live.com, http://www.maps.google.com, …

Because ATLAS framework is still under-contruction and test. You can keep track of its information at http://www.atlas.asp.net and its document with many examples at http://www.atlas.asp.net/docs All for free and waiting for you
