Ajax Demonstration

Ajax Demonstration

This is a simple demonstration of the use of Ajax. David Summer is using Ajax technology to display news headlines from an RSS news feed.

Ajax (a shorthand for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) is being used here to periodically communicate with the web server, in order to obtain an updated news feed and display each update without refreshing the entire web page.

These news headlines come from the Yahoo News RSS feed. Every 5 seconds the script goes to the server and gets the updated feed. Then a random story is selected from the list and displayed.
