Hello
I guess this is a very good place to talk about AJAX and remotescripting.net as i saw some .net developers around.
both are calling a remote server side method with help of vbscript/js

correct me if i am wrong.
1. What is AJAX giving better than remotescripting?
2. Do you as a .NET developer recommend AJAX.

Foundations of Ajax briefly mentions an example in chapter 2 that uses remote scripting using iframes rather than the XMLHttpRequest object.

Remote scripting has a few advantages, namely that it can be used in any browser that supports iframes and it can connect to other domains. Other than that, from a developer standpoint, using the XMLHttpRequest object is the superior choice.

Yeah I am a .NET developer here in a world surrounded by Java people.

Remote Scripting is another term for Ajax. You probably looked at the remotescripting library that was avaiable for .NET.

I highly resommend using Ajax in the .NEt framework. With Ajax In Action I have an example in vb.net and C#. I just got a new job where I will be integrating Ajax functionality into the next version of the application.

IMHO: Tha main goal for Ajax is to increase the user's experience. The whole application does not have to be Ajax. A single ajax component on the page can make a sour user turn into a sweet one.

Now with .NET on the 2.0 framework you can look into ATLAS. I just started to do that, but I am not a really big fan of the whole tag nature of it. Plus the documentation is still not great. The ASP.NET forums has a whole section devoted to atlas.
